On the bench today… A Sony ICF-SW1 – Video!

The first Vintage Technology workshop full length video. Enjoy.

Here I show you a strip down and repair of a Sony ICF-SW1 world band radio.

Just in case you were worried about static damage, the cloth has been treated with “Servisol Anti-Static Spray 90” and as such acts as a soft antistatic mat. If you are worried about damaging one of these delicate radios, then I would recommend a grounding mat and a ground strap.

Sorry about the condition of my hands, I had been handling some workshop chemicals, which had peeled the skin off in places. Note to self, wear gloves. 🙂
