My Restored R1155 Receiver

One comment I have had about the R1155 restoration book, is that there are no photographs of the completed receiver. So here are some, click on each picture to get a larger version. If you want to restore your receiver to a fully working condition you will need my book. It shows you where every wire goes in every part of the receiver. It provides a workable rebuilding plan, so that everything fits in with minimum difficulties.

Finally, here is the book after a delay at the printers. The spiral binding is robust and allows you to open the book flat on the work bench.



The photos below show a couple of pages, giving you an idea of the level of detail.
