Hi all,
I'm an Art Deco and modernist collector and now my collection (mixed with my love of bakelite and vintage lab equipment) has spilled out into valve radios. I bought my first one recently and love it, and now dad has given me an old one which was sitting in his shed for 20 years to have a go at fully restoring. Great site with lots of helpful advice!

G'day and welcome to the forums. I hope your shed has some spare nooks because most collectors end up getting more than one radio, even those who only buy a radio because they like the look of it. Wink

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

Welcome. If you send photos to administrator Brad he will post them for you.

When you commence restoration and have questions, make a post in the technical section under the name and model of the radio and we'll do our best to answer them.
