Other radios based on the same chassis:
Short wave radio adapted to also cover the broadcast band. Came with 4 sets of coils for 23-600m (500kHz to 13MHz)
The blurb mentions that this was not a distance set - so it seems unlikely they would have sold many of these given they were really designed for short wave.

General Construction Notes for Wellmade Ltd:
Radios made for Johns in the 30's were often available in AC, DC or Battery. The inclusion of DC power options was because large tracts of Auckland (where Johns and Wellmade were situated) were supplied by DC power generation.
