Quaker Oats Images For "Oatsbox Radio"


This is a work in progress. I wanted to complete this page with a built radio.
But,  I received so many requests for the images I decided to release it now and finish it later.
If you build this radio, or use the images, please consider sending a photo of your radio and I will post it here for all to see.






Plans at the bottom of the page!!!
 

Build one of these oatboxes and then wind your coil over it and it will look just like a "old" set!!

Need plans for the radio?

This is what the original looked like
 

High Resolution Version

Click on the two images above to down load for printing
Please be aware the each image is over 1.5 meg.
I kept the resolution up high so you could get a good image
 
 

Low Resolution Version


Click on the two images above to down load for printing
These two images are lower resolution images of the same photo
Will still print very nice at this lowered resolution
 
 
 

When printing them out, you need to make the left image 6.85 inches x 7.8 inches
The right image must be 6.85 inches x 4.8 inches
This will fit a "new" quaker Oats box exactly
I cut out the images and sprayed them with a contact adhisive from a spray can and then applied
them to the new quaker box.
