Vintage Radio and Phonograph


Can anyone point me in the direction to get approximate value for a vintage console radio phonograph that’s in excellent condition?

Do you know anything about this value wise?
Hello folks, I'm new to this page. I have quite a few old phonographs and they all seem to have issues so I figured I'd see if there is any help on here, haha. Does anyone know about availability for cartridges for older equipment? My 1963 Magnavox definitely needs one.
Can anyone use a vintage Phonograph base. No hardware just wood. No labels to identify it, but in nice condition.
A friend just gave me this. It was her Grandmother's. Is it worth resorting? The cord is brittle and unusable.
Hi there, I hope it's ok for me to post on here but I'm trying to track down what this radio is, and who made it. Does anyone on here recognise it? Thank you so much in advance for your help!
Apologies for the terrible picture - that's why I'm having so much trouble identifying it, but it's all I have.
Here’s my Philco Beam of Light!
This belongs to me & is for sale.

Hi, I'm wondering if I could get a bit of advice about the Edison Diamond Disc Phonograph that I have. It's in fairly good shape except the disc motor needs to be rebuilt and one back leg of the cabinet needs repair. Other than that, it just needs a thorough cleaning and reassembly. I haven't had any luck with my attempts to repair the disc motor so I'd have to send that off to be rebuilt. Otherwise, I think I can handle everything else.

My question is: does it make any sense to refurbish this phonograph? Or would it make more sense just to part it out? Thanks for any thoughts you might have.
I am trying to find out something about this Devon system. Model R-5219. I tried a google search but no luck. Kept bringing up Denon. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks.

I've finally recieved the dial glass from Radio Daze yippie


RCA Victor finished


Work started


Quick update


I’ve uploaded this video to my YouTube channel it looks better


An RCA radio / 45 rpm record player just picked it up


Estate sale. Is it nuts that I love this


Just picked this up. Not sure if it is vintage or newer. But it is mint and sounds great. Nice display item


So I ordered the correct dial plate glass from Radiodaze because the one in the radio couldn’t work properly. This video shows why.


I’ve come to realize this isn’t even the correct dial glass in this radio. But I do like the way it came out and I’m keeping it. And some of the capacitor replacements so far

Update. I’ve realized this dial I made won’t work. I’ve ordered the correct dial from


Picked up a great little analog meter today for $10.00. Some new batteries and should be all set


The cabinet was nearly perfect. Just a bit of Howard’s to bring back some color


This took me forever but I have the size perfect. I’m going to get clear glass and use the background I made to fix the broken original.


Oops. I said it was a Sears radio. It’s a Philco. From 1942. AM FM shortwave

[10/22/20]   I walked into an antique store today. And uh um. I’ll show ya later


Worked on the cabinet a little. Told you it was easy




So I removed the changer motor and took it apart mostly and cleaned and lightly lubed the parts. Waiting on a capacitor kit.


Posting some great posters I came across a while back


I've removed the three electrolytic that I replaced to test the RCA and am waiting for the correct values. And I've replaced two of the paper caps...0022uf both. Waiting on the rest mostly. .05mf and one

I always like to post this one once in a while

This is what happens when your 6x5 rectifier tubes short out


My cat takes advantage of my record players


Not much left before testing except installing the new platter rubber cover I have the new idler wheel in. Couple days and I'll test it out.


Mostly done with refinish. But the platter cover is in really poor shape I probably should replace it. What do you think. It's about 10 bucks. Worth it?

I started restoring radios and record players about ten years ago when I boughta Philco radio phono combo unit from a an antique mall . I knew nothing about restoring radios but I gave it a try . I was successful enough to make it work . Now I could buy a new radio every day if I could afford it . Soon I will start on the time machine wish me luck!!!
