Dust Collector

Can an old console style radio be repaired?

I have an old radio which must be getting close to 100 years old LOL. It was my grandmothers, and while it has a great old timey vibe to it, its ultimately a dust collector. I would like to know if it can be made useable again, my husband says you can't buy vacuum tubes or other parts for it any more

There is an entire cottage industry out on the internet devoted to making antique electronic gear functional. The website for Antique Electronics comes to mind. Insofar as vacuum tubes are concerned, they never went out of production in the former Warsaw Pact nations, and now even China has started making them again for both antique enthusiasts as well as guitarists and hi-fi nuts who prefer the sound of vacuum tubes over transistors. Plus there are still plenty of New Old Stock USA military surplus tubes for sale on the internet so I would say that finding parts for your old radio should not be a problem. Finding the expertise is another matter, you'll want to talk to retired Navy electronic techs or TV repair shop owners on the labor part. Good Luck!!!
