I'm not a tech, or a collector, but I have an unrestored, but complete and superficially sound,1939 Philips Radioplayer Model 1852 console radio that I'd like to bring back to its former glory. Forty years ago I owned an immaculate 1934 Philips console and had to sell it when I left NZ. I've always regretted parting with it, and while this 1852 isn't as high quality, it should still look and sound fine when it's done. So, I'm here to learn (thanks to the four-part cabinet restoration thread, I'm already avoiding mistakes!), and get back in touch with old radios. Any old Philips knobs and a speaker would be appreciated (just kidding!). I'm a fan of motorcycles, old VWs, dogs, kids and my new first grandkid.
