Remember back in the good-ol’-days when people would actually fix their broken electronics? Yeah, me neither. Check out this instructable to learn how to fix an old radio, and maybe save it from going into a landfill.

Back in the day somebody always knew somebody else that could fix minor things on radios and that’s what I’m going to cover here. In this instructable I’m going to walk you through the basics of getting an old tube table top radio up and running. Finding a repair shop that can fix old radios can be real tough. If you do find one, the bill may be pretty daunting. This will not cover 100% of all problems but will get most radios that aren’t severely damaged back in operating order. This instructable assumes that you have some electronics background, you can read values on parts, and you can solder.
