I picked up this Automatic Electric Candlestick and was looking for some more info on the model etc.





Secondly it seems to be pretty solid except inside the transmitter housing the two welds have snapped free. Is there anyone or and method to repairing this?

 ILM75Dodge,
                    Can you post a pic of the inside of receiver and hookswitch springs ,to see which version of AE 21 you have.
                   I resoldered my transmitter cup from the inside . Be sure to do one side and let cool, then the other side ,or the whole mount will fall out . Pics are from AE Bulletin 1015 pg. 30 and 32 , Jan. 1 , 1929. Hope this helps. stub

When you re-soldiered the inside cup what was your method? I assume you had to braze it? I assume a soldering iron will not get hot enough?

Very nice AE 21!

That's also gotta be one of the coolest dial cards, ever!!! 8)
