These little knobs almost always go missing after all these years. The tuning dial works fine. The power cable is securely attached. The original cord was stronger and better quality than most. The power cord is in good working condition. Clock works and keeps accurate time. Clock motor is quiet no humming buzzing or grinding sounds. Alarm works. Clock and alarm set function work. Sleep function works. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring.
