on several cases so please contact me for availability. Deposit required to secure

wireless or supplied as a fully functioning stand alone plug in DAB/FM radio. I
build these with safety as a priority with special circuitry to protect against any
hum, hiss or electrical incompatiblity... I can build these in a variety of cases,
including my beautifully presented ‘cigar box’ series. The modules are remote controlled
which also adds this function to your wireless and can include MP3/iPod capability.

Check out my customer testimonials!! Many happy people out there!
ONLY BUY A ‘RESTORED’ RADIO FROM A TRUSTED SOURCE!
BEWARE OF Ebay items saying ‘not tested’ or ’I don’t know if it works’ at silly prices!
Don’t pay over the odds!!
ONLY HAVE YOUR RADIO REPAIRED BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING!
NEVER plug in an old radio that has languished for years in the outhouse or loft
‘just to see if it works’!!!!
Many old vintage valve radios have a live chassis! That means that any metalwork
inside the radio will be LIVE (connected to the mains) and it can KILL YOU OR EVEN
WORSE (!) if you touch it. Any exposed screws or any metalwork on the outside of
the cabinet, like the metal speaker grill on DAC90’s, must be checked for safety
by a competent person.
DO NOT CONNECT EXTERNAL WIRING TO THE GRAM or PU or TAPE SOCKETS ON YOUR RADIO UNLESS
THE RADIO HAS BEEN CHECKED AND CERTIFIED AS SAFE!!
DON’T BE AFRAID OF YOUR RADIO BUT PLEASE BE SENSIBLE!! YOU WOULD’NT GO STICKING YOUR
FINGERS IN THE BACK OF THE TV OR INTO A WHIRLING FOOD BLENDER WOULD YOU?…. er WOULD
Your old radio will be safe with me!!!!
NB with my work it is perfectly safe to plug in and play your iPod MP3 or DAB through
your vintage radio!!
OPTION 5. A full restoration??? This is my bread and butter! And the most enjoyable!
I can refurbish and rebuild your old valve radio set back to its near original state.
This of course includes replacing tired and worn out parts such as all the leaky
capacitors, out of spec resistors testing /changing valves/switches if necessary,
and ensuring the electrical safety of the wireless.
Price per job but I know how frustrating it is to see websites without a hint at
the possible cost!!! As a rough guide you are looking at around £250+/- , could
be more or could be less!!! The main cost to me is TIME as my quality work can take
several weeks..... Let me give an accurate estimate ? Payments can be spread......
