ANTIQUE TUBE RADIO/TUNER REPAIR
I have been repairing antique tube radios/tuners for the past 30 years. I repair all makes and models, including foreign radios/tuners.
REPAIR VS RESTORATION
I repair equipment and do not perform restoration.
Restoration involves placing new parts within the shells of the old parts, or placing new parts inside of moulds of old parts that are painted to look like the old parts.
Repair involves installing new parts under the chassis. All exposed parts on top of the chassis stay in place (are not removed).
Defective components shall be replaced.
All filter and paper capacitors shall be replaced.
All tubes will be tested for Emissions and Leakage (shorts). Bad tubes shall be replaced.
I will not replace tube circuits with a solid state circuit board.
