Hello,
I always imagined I would tinker with vintage radio when I retired. However, as retirement looms it seems unlikely.

I have a couple of old radios some radio magazines from the 30s & 60s also some test equipment and parts.

I would like to find a good home for it perhaps to give it away or sell it cheap, I would like to stay in touch (not often !) with my old gear and would be prepared to give some little advice about the restoration.

Hello again, I believe I unhid my address. I am not used to this type of website. If you have tried to contact me without success please let me know. I need to get rid of my stuff pretty soon.

Yes, your address is unhidden.

I suggest that you may get more interest if you were to list here what you have.

G'day John,

Best way is to post photos of what you want to sell. If you e-mail these to me I can add them to this thread.

John,

I agree with GTC and Brad. It's best to list what you have, and the condition. With condition, I would suggest also including specific details in your post. If it is visibly missing something (ie. valves or a transformer), or if some needs replacing (leaking capacitor etc.). It's best to include as much necessary information as possible, so as to give potential buyers a better idea of the equipment in question.

As Brad said, send him some photos, and he will post them here. Alternatively, upload them to another website/host (such as ImageShack or Flickr), and then post the links in your thread.

Cheers,

Chris

P.s. Brad, I love your signiture (a valve a day keeps the transistor away)!

Hello again,
I sent several photos to Brad a few days ago. I would rather give the stuff to a good home
( that I might stay in touch with once in a while) rather than selling it.
