Hi All,

A huge database with photos, schematics and troubleshooting tips can be found at:
www.radiomuseum.org
Most of the website is in German but there is also a large English section.

World's Largest Collection of Antique Radios

There is a place in Orange County, CA. that has, get this, the world's largest collection of antique radios (all in working condition), classic cars (all in showroom condition), antique telephones and microphones and slot machines.
Go to www.astorclassics.com and check it out.

He has turned it all into an events center for people to rent out for events like wedding receptions and big parties. I have been there for an event. It is UNBELIEVABLE.

Not as comprehensive as I would like but here is a link to my Radio collection which also includes my audio pieces. Not all was mine as a large collector in NC assembled most of the radios (which I later purchased) but some nice pieces nonetheless. I should label all of the pics but never got around to it.

Good golly, man, you have about all I've ever thought of collecting, both in old radios and audio gear.

Some collection indeed! Mazeltov, you got it all.

Not really. Remember this saying, grasshopper?

I had posted a list in another discussion (McMurdo Silver II post) of all that is shown in the pics but didn't want to duplicate unless you folks have any interest.

I know of a few guys who have small businesses or cottage industries. You can try these for knobs:

Mark Oppat, Antique Audio, moppat@flash.net
Parts, tubes, inexpensive caps

Dave Frush, parts2many@aol.com

Mike Koste, Gobs of Knobs, michael.koste@zurichna.com

Play Things of Past, http://oldradioparts.com/
See the How to Order page
Many transformers, speakers and other parts

You will want to send a jpg closeup of the knob, plus measurements (helps to put a ruler by the knob in the pic), AND the type of shaft - flatted, round, slotted, etc. - PLUS the radio make and model.

I had a contact in Europe looking for a Philips knob:

Frag'Jan Zuerst -----Ask Jan First(R)
Dipl. Ing. Jan Philipp Wuesten Elektronik
Preiler Ring 10 ; D- 25774 Lehe, Germany
Phone: +49-4882-6054551 Fax : +49-4882-6054552
<http://www.die-wuestens.de> (Deutsch, English, Francais)
mail to <FJZ@die-wuestens.de>

This was in 2006. I did buy 2 knobs from him at a very reasonable price and he was very helpful.

One thing I would encourage you to do with these small businesses is to give as much info as possible in the first call or email. These guys have to put a lot of labor time into inquiries on top of inventory and parts salvaging. Trading 8 emails to get your info, then finding you aren't going to buy the item, really hurts them. They do desperately want to see radios put back together or they wouldn't be in business, so help them to help you.

For people in or around Michigan there is the Michigan Antique Radio Club (M.A.R.C.) they have 4 swap meets per year. The one in July held in Lansing is huge 2 day event, lots of parts, tubes, knobs, and projects cheap! The only issue I have found is that it is outside so check the weather, if it is raining everyone covers up their stuff and it’s all over until the rain stops.
