VINTAGE VALVE RADIOS

A practical guide for restorers

From basic principles to full chassis and cabinet restoration. Beginner-friendly, simplified and virtually maths-free. The theory starts from the atom and goes on by stages to cover the entire range of components and circuitry to be found in valve receivers.

VINTAGE RADIOS

My guide to valve radio

collecting and restoring. An ideal introduction

to this fascinating subject.

 

 

 

VALVE RADIOS

A handbook for restorers

 

 

VALVE RADIOS is my latest book, a practical guide for the repairer and restorer of commercial receivers built during the era of the valve (tube). Packed with information of a directly useful and understandable form, this book is the product of many years of experience. Detailed and specific component and valve faults are identified and restoration methods described. Coverage also includes safety, tools and equipment, example restorations, cabinet and case restoration and faultfinding guidance to help the restorer, new to valve technology or not, to locate and correct the causes of problems whether electronic, mechanical or structural.

 

This is a book based entirely upon practical restoration and is not a theory text but where it is inevitable that there are technical terms used, the glossary is there to clarify. An assumption is made that readers will possess at least some basic practical knowledge of electronics, though not necessarily of valve technology.

All books available on Amazon and by order from most good bookshops.
