I buy old radios, mostly transistor radios, and totally refub them back to original working radios. I put a lot of time and effort into these old antiques. I want them to last another 60 years or more. I will not sell junk. If the radios do not meet my standards, they do not ship. I have several folks that can send you references on my work. I always get great reviews. If a radio should not perform as it should, I will take it back and issue a full refund.
