The Current Waiting List is ENORMOUS!


Sorry but NO NEW Projects till January 2020

 


As many past customers will know, DAB HAND RADIO operates on a ‘hobby business’ basis.  If you are looking for speedy repairs I’m afraid you’ll have to look elsewhere.  A combination of ill health and grandchildren (childcare!) has conspired to limit my Workshop days considerably (down to 2 now). To be honest I’ve been struggling over the past two years to keep up the momentum and some days I just have to throw in the towel and chill … Sadly this means I have got very far behind. I really hate to disappoint but the waiting list has become a bit of a noose around my neck so I’ve determined to clear the decks by 2020


DURING NOVEMBER 2019 I will be re-locating temporarily to Marlow in Buckinghamshire! This will further slow down progress although I will be setting up a small workshop there for servicing jobs…


Priority now has to be given to customers waiting a considerable time.


LEGACY ITEMS: I have had three radios which have been in my loft and were brought from our old home in Rochdale to our new home in Stockport over 7 years ago. These were estimates for work and the owners have not contacted me to confirm the estimate or collect their radios. Well, sorry but I have disposed of them. Evidently six years is a reasonable time to hold on to such items (Trading Standards Advice) and that has now been surpassed. Please read my Terms and Conditions on this site. These T’s &C’s have been published for over ten years now so if the above affects you I’m sorry but the ship has sailed and you missed it! It is laid out in my T’s & C’s.

This list is subject to alteration, change, panic, heartache and sleepless nights due to guilt and the fact that time seems to spin faster in Romiley than anywhere else in the world. I think its about April but I’m staggered that its August 2019 already….


1.   Rincan Table Radio  Mr W.


2.  HMV  Mr G. M. (Boston)

 

3. Mullard Radio Conversion Mr W (Dublin)


4. Philips table Radio Conversion  Mrs W. (Chasetown)


5. PYE MPU 45  Restoration Mr C. Cowx


I’ve not been making too much progress on these but I’m trying! I was out of action most of last year but I’m back on track now… Please be patient!     Nearly there!!!  


LEGACY ITEMS!!!


If by some chance your name/details are not on the list above please contact me asap. I may have lost your Order!  

 

For every ten enquiries usually only one becomes a firm order without the commitment of a deposit.  I have over 5800+ followers on  Facebook and an average of 50+ hits per day on my website. The demand is HUGE!

I could put my prices up but that seems unfair to many and I don’t run Dab Hand Radio for the money but the fun!


I hope the above isn’t confusing so to reiterate…


 

SERVICING/REPAIRS/SALES..


These are unaffected and will continue to be squeezed in to the background to the above projects.  THEY HAVE TO BE HAND DELIVERED! I’ve had too many breakages via couriers to risk shipping!

I have two workbenches in use and only one is under the web cam.

The 12 month guarantee on a 70 year old radio shows how confident I am that you will be very happy with your purchase. Beware of untested, not safety checked and allegedly restored radios found on auction sites at inflated prices. Most are a serious fire risk! All my radios are thoroughly tested, all old waxy capacitors removed and replaced with modern high voltage types, all valves tested and replaced if needed. The radio is aligned and the case polished to a high standard with all scratches and marks removed as far as possible. The usually dim dial lights are up rated via a small transformer to give a wonderful ‘classic radio' glow at no extra cost. ( This modification is safe and can be removed if the customer would like total originality)... The radio has a new appropriately fused mains lead fitted.
