CASE STUDIES

DIAL STRINGING RADIOS

One of the most difficult parts of radio repair is re-stringing dial cord used to tune the radio. We have actually run into older un-documented radios (1932 or older) where we could not successfully restring the radio. Without dial stringing documentation, some radios are simply impossible to restring.

A dial string diagram looks like this:

DIAL CORD RESTRINGING  Any radio or repair that requires restringing the tuning dial cord, costs $45.00 to restring and in some cases $95.00. If you have never tried to do this then you cannot appreciate how frustrating and time consuming it is. If you think the price is too high - be my guest and do it yourself. Restringing can involve multiple hours and delays due to research [ Many radio documentation sets do not have adequate dial string diagrams.] A radio that has a particularly difficult dial cord setup can in the worst case consume 20-30 hours of actual clock time. We do not bill for this time.
