CASE STUDIES

ABOUT CONSOLES OR MULTI FUNCTION UNITS

 

NO COMPLETE CONSOLES ACCEPTED whether by delivery or shipping. These are simply too awkward for me to handle. I am glad to repair the actual radios which can be pulled out of the cabinets and, along with the speaker, sent to me. The corollary to this - is I do not do grill cloth repairs on consoles - but will repair grill cloth on table tops. If you show up at my shop with a console radio, it will be refused and money returned if necessary. If your radio is a table model, that is, normally sits on a table not on the floor, then you can send/bring the radio to me.

REMOVING THE "RADIO" FROM A CONSOLE

Most radio chassis can be removed from a cabinet in a few simple steps. They are usually held firm by 4 bolts on the underside of the shelf they are on. Usually you must remove the knobs on the front also. {Keep Them - Do not send} The speaker usually can be removed by loosening 4 small bolts [keep them]. I will tell you when I send payment instructions whether or not you need to send the speaker. There is usually a way to disconnect the speaker from the chassis - some sort of plug.

IF YOU ARE SHIPPING

I strongly suggest using a service such as the UPS store. Over 30% of the owner packed radios sent to us, arrive damaged. UPS/FEDEX packed radios have a damage rate of less than 2%.  

On the speaker - To avoid damage in handling and shipment, the speaker should be placed flat -- cone side down in a correct size box . Then that box put in an outer shipping box. All with appropriate bubble wrap and peanuts.
