Stumbled upon this while researching capacitors. Figured I'd post it up.

Cool! Lately, I have found myself looking at consol radios more and more. I might pick one up and see if I can get it going again. This will help if I do.

Large console radios generally do not command a high price because they are almost pieces of furniture and for most people you have to find someone to get it working.

There are many out there and while there are some that are highly collectable most go for a good price.

Repair info is readily available as well as many NOS tubes and components.

Yeah, and I don't really have anywhere to put one. But I do think they look cool.

I always wanted one of those table top radios from the 1930's - the ones that curve together on the top. I think they're called cathedral radios. They go for crazy money, even when non-functional.

How about old-school automotive electronics? Like the mid-50's Cadillac 'Autronic Eye' system used for auto-dimming of high beams? I have the manual for that somewhere.

I was going somewhere with this, but see this is the wrong section.
