This Crosley "Duette" tabletop radio was discovered in a dumpster after a local radio auction. It was probably thrown out because the painted bakelite case had bad cracks and pieces that were taped together. The cosmetic repairs were relatively straight-forward since the case was painted so the radio came home with me at the cost of a dumpster dive. The cracks and pieces were glued together with epoxy on the inside of the case and to fill in the cracks. After drying, the cabinet was sanded down, primered and spray painted with a maroon color similar to the original. The electronics only needed relatively simple repairs.
