Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

RE: Hi Mark

Hi Shovel, Timbo and Hahax too.
A few years ago I bought a Dyna FM-3 for 200 dollars. It was from a site on the computer which was dedicated only to the FM-3. They had one for sale that contained all their mods.They aligned it too. I'm trying to re find that site. They were the first to provide an optional black faceplate before I saw them for sale on Ebay.
Shovel, I'm not a big believer in break in times but the more time I have had the FM-3 on the better things are sounding....cap loading we talked about. One thing that looks different from stock is this little pc board cut out on one end for a tube right behind the tuning eye. I think Sheldon Stokes might have come up with these as I've seen them alot in images of the FM-3 on a Google search. It looks like a little army of caps all the same size lined up for duty, nothing like stock.
On the FM-6. Mike Samra's a great guy and freind but I wouldn't want to take his time up with an AM tuner as a normal person might just get a cheap radio to listen to AM. It will be added to my list of projects. Shovel from what you told me if I go slow an methodic I think I can make a stab at trying to get the FM-6 back on track. If I had a MacIntosh 78 or a nice H.H. Scott tuner then I wouldn't hesitate to get Mike S. on it. Shovel, I will copy your instructions and staple them as an addition to the manual. Even if I can't get to it tomorrow I do want to get that tuner going and your efforts will be recorded for me and anyone else that it can help getting a nice piece of gear like the FM-6 or FM-5 going.
Shovel, someone spared me administering the dope slap on the B&0 speaker guy. He down right blasted him! I forgot his name but I'd like to give him a nice (non-dope slap) on the back for doing so.You tried to help him and he gave you a Pearl Harbor job!
Take care and keep those stories and the info coming...thanks ...Mark K.
