Get Your 5 tube table radio into Tip-Top Shape .

Here's the deal:

   Send me your 5 tube table radio chassis and speaker, with attached antenna (if any) and a USPS Postal Money Order (purchased at a US Post Office) for $49.99* (+ sales tax if you live in NY State) + return shipping and I will replace all the paper and filter capacitors.  I will also replace the line cord and light bulb if you want them or if either or both are necessary.   If there is nothing else wrong with your radio, such as tubes, resistors, coils or transformers (they are all usually good), when the restoration is complete, I will automatically ship your radio back to you.
 
 

*Notes:  If your radio has a power transformer, there are more capacitors to replace, so add $10.00 to the price.
If you cannot determine if your set has a power transformer, I will let you know.

If your radio has a selenium rectifier it is replacing a tube, and, counts as a tube. 

Please see my 6 tube radio special below if your radio has 5 tubes and a selenium rectifier.
If other parts are needed I will call to get your approval on the additional cost before any other work is done.

Please make your US Postal Money order payable to:
Dave's Antique Radio & TV Restorations

Please enclose, along with your money order,  something that states your name address and phone number.
There have been many occasions that I received a package sent from Mail Boxes Etc., with a complete address for Mail Boxes Etc. and not any from the owner of the radio.  So please include the information I need to contact you.

This special is open to small non battery table radios, similar to the ones pictured, that work on 110-120V AC or DC from a wall outlet only
and have the AM or BC band and can also have a short wave band but not FM.

There have been many occasions that I received a package sent from the UPS Store (formerly: Mail Boxes Etc.), with a complete address for The UPS Store and not any from the owner of the radio. 
So please include the information I need to contact you.

New SpecialAM-FM All American Table Radio Specials

  What if your small table radio has 7 or 8 tubes, FM and/or possibly a selenium rectifier?
In some cases, an AM-FM radio from the early to mid-50s has as few capacitors to replace in it as a 6-tube, All American Tube table Radio. However, other AM-FM Table radios have two, three or more times that number of capacitors.

Long ago, when I decided to make a special for AM-FM table radios, to the best of my knowledge at that time, most of the AM-FM radios I worked on had about double the capacitors to replace as a 5 tube table radio. So I called it the "Double-5 Special". However, recently, I learned of an AM-FM table radio that has more than 3 times the number of capacitors to replace. So, please let me know the make and model and I will tell you the "Special" price. There are so many different AM-FM table radios, with differing amounts of capacitors to replace, I'm going to have look up each and every one. It seems to be the only way.


For fastest service, a USPS Postal Money order should be enclosed, as with the other specials, but it should be the amount I tell you (plus Sales Tax, if you are a NY State Resident) plus return shipping.

This special, like the others above, includes the replacement of all paper and electrolytic capcitors, and if necessary, the dial lamp(s) and/or line cord. All other parts will cost extra.

*Notes:
If there are other parts needed I will call or send you an eMail message to get your approval on the additional cost before any additional work is done. Then an additional USPS Postal Money order will need to be sent when the work is completed.

Please make your US Postal Service Postal Money order payable to:
Dave's Antique Radio & TV Restorations

This special is open to small non-battery table radios that work on 110-120v AC or DC from a wall outlet and have both AM and FM bands but NOT Short Wave.
 
Please enclose, along with your money order,  something that states your name address and phone number.


There have been many occasions that I received a package sent from the UPS Store (formerly: Mail Boxes Etc.), with a complete address for The UPS Store and not any from the owner of the radio. 
So please include the information I need to contact you.


Notes on Packaging:

Please do not ship your cabinets or knobs.   Bakelite and other old plastics are very brittle.  All I need to do the restoration is the chassis and speaker.  If there is an antenna attached to the chassis, I need that too.   Please package well.  Put cardboard over the front of the speaker so it doesn't get punctured.  Cover the chassis in bubble wrap so that it doesn't get dented or the tubes don't get broken in shipment.  Use a heavy weight cardboard box (double layer) filled with packaging peanuts.    It is sometimes better to have an inner and outer box so that there is an extra layer of protection.



These specials will remain in effect as long as the page exists.

NEW: 10% Quantity Discount if 10 or more qualifying radios are sent together and total payment is enclosed.
