any of your radios for sale?
of the largest misconceptions is that replacing tubes will fix a
radio. More often than not, the tubes are good. That said, do
not plug in your old radio. Leaking or shorted out
capacitors are the main repair item with an old radio and plugging in a
set before it is checked over by a qualified technician can result in
damage to the radio and harm to yourself..
you fix my old radio?
are widely available on the Internet. The best free source is
Air For other parts such as capacitors and bulbs, the best is Bob's
Antique Radios. Replacement cosmetic parts can be found at Rock
Sea Enterprises and at Old
Time Replications. There are others but these I have found
provide the best service and widest variety.
I get this question more than any other. The real answer is whatever someone is willing to pay you for it. Condition, location, rarity and how it is being sold all affect the "value". If you really ask me a value, I will quote you the book value.
Do you still buy radios?
With more than 400 radios the answer is
still yes. I buy one or entire collections. If you
have something to sell, it is best to send me pictures, descriptions and
price. I will travel almost anywhere in the mid-west to look at
collections for sale. And be sure to ask me before you just put that radio
in a garage sale thinking no one will want it.
