My first Crosley

Normally I’m not too fond of modern tools in a retro design, I rather prefer the ‘real’ old stuff. But for this black machine I made a small exception.

Crosley Radio was founded in 1920 and became the world’s largest radio manufacturer. Founder Powel Crosley became known as ‘The Henry Ford of Radio.’ Nowadays the name Crosley is used for detailed replicas of classsic radios and turntables, with modern technology added.
