I want to peel the protective paper off these aluminum blanks on my radio. I don't want to scar the alum. The paper is brittle.

I think I've posted this before....my grandfather built this back in the 60s. Hand built and designed all the circuitry. Brilliant man. He was the head chemist at Kodak.

As brittle as it is I wonder if just water would work? I just don't want run marks.

I'd go gentle, start with soap and water, then go to alcohol. It looks like those are standard rack panels and as such you can still buy them from companies like Hammond which may very well be the brand of the rack. They have been in business a long time. I have a tube amp I built from scratch in 2001. I was in the last class to learn tube theory at my trade school in 1980 and I used that knowledge at work to repair tube powered gear until about 5 years ago when the last of it was retired. Well designed tube gear is pretty reliable, and pretty much all audio tubes are still available although they are a lot more expensive then they were even 10 years ago. Can you post a picture of the speakers and tell us a bit more about the configuration of the setup? Mono or stereo amps, etc.

My biggest problem is this stuff is more advanced than I am. I know the stuff needs some work. Luckily it's all been stored inside. I just tried it and something isn't working. I know the capacitors should be replaced but at this time I'm hesitant to get into it. Here's what I think everything is...

Don't forget the power supplies. Everything has a left and a right.

The amps...two for each side. I would assume each side has a output for the speakers I have and the sub woofers that are at my parents.

Very smart man. I could never build that. Don't have any suggestions but thank you for sharing that.
