Unique Business Opportunity:

ANTIQUE RADIO RESTORATION & REPAIR http://www.oldradiodoc.com is for sale! 

America's premier shop for a quarter century. Ranked #1 on Google and just about every other search engine in cyberdom. This is a year round very busy niche business with an excellent world wide reputation. On-line since April 1994 (the very early days). Enough work to support 3 full time technicians all year long. The volume of work can be adjusted to suit your desire. Owner Bob Eslinger/KR1U has just retired and wishes to pass the business on to a younger generation. ***Training is available***. The business is available all- inclusive with domains, reputation, inventory and my private antique radio collection ...or as a partial package if you just require the inventory for your existing business, or, if you have the inventory and just want the domains, or if you are just buying antique radio collections, etc.

The inventory includes two internet domains, a HUGE parts department including inventory from 27 closed radio shops and nearly 50 years of collecting. Almost nothing else to buy for years....it's all here. Many thousands of tubes, radio chassis' for parts, escutcheons, speakers, dial glass, new capacitors, resistors, transformers, speaker grille cloth, every antique radio part imaginable, test equipment, Gernsback, Riders, Sams, Supreme-Beitman schematics and factory documentation from all the major players, etc. etc.

The price is negotiable. Bob Eslinger, 20 Gary School Rd., Pomfret Center, CT 06259 | 860-928-2628 bob@oldradiodoc.com


Even though I am now retired, I may still be able to assist those looking to acquire radio tubes, parts or a nice antique radio.
I am downsizing my personal antique radio collection and have over 350 radios available.

These would be for pickup in Connecticut only. No shipping. The same goes for parts. I will help if I can but ***you must search for what you need yourself.*** Visitors are welcome but visits must be prearranged.


In the event the shop is not sold, I may consider again restoring radios but only on a part time basis and only for those local enough to visit the shop (no shipping). ..and only after I take a few years rest.

In the meantime.....I will try to provide links to any shops I believe may provide professional antique radio restoration service. Unfortunately they are very few and far between. Any shops I find will be listed directly below this notice.
Just click on the links to visit them.

I would very much like to know your experience ..both good and bad...with these shops so I may adjust my links accordingly *****so please keep me posted.*****
