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…
In the New Year Dab Hand Radio will be changing emphasis towards smaller jobs and towards more restoration work rather than DAB/Internet conversions. Several customers have been contacted and, unfortunately, I will not be able to complete the planned work and with agreement, their radios are being returned/disposed. I’m having to wipe the slate clean so to speak… I regret this but circumstances have dictated!
Priority is being given to the following outstanding work where I have already started and hence need to complete..
1. Mr J Marshall 2. Mr. J. Bridekirk 3. Mr N. Uebel 4. Mr. D. Cadman 5. Mr. C.Cowx
6. Mr. ? Chepstow (2 radios) 7. Jo Burrows 8. Mr. K Peers 9. Mr A Sharpe
(All not working on in that order so not a placement list!)
+ 2 French radios (local)
Other than a couple more local jobs to Romiley the above are the ONLY work I will be completing by the Spring of 2020.
If your name isn’t above or below please contact me urgently!! (Especially if you sent me a RINCAN radio!..I’ve lost your details…)
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.

Rincan Table Radio Mr W. ??? I HAVE LOST YOUR DETAILS!! PLEASE CONTACT ME!
If by some chance your name/details are not mentioned on this HOME PAGE 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 6000+ 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…
These are limited but 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.
MOST OF THE WORK WILL NOW BE IN MARLOW!
PLEASE PAY HERE!
Radios FOR SALE!
I may occasionally have one or two on my

NB THE radio must be working for a Service! If its not working its a REPAIR!
My STANDARD SERVICE includes: Safety check, wax capacitors replaced and all minor repairs carried out. Valves tested and replaced* New mains cord and appropriate fuse fitted.
£85 plus shipping (or drop off at the workshop for free) * Valves replaced at extra charge if required.
FREE ESTIMATES ON ALL REPAIRS! Fair rates and often cheaper than a new radio! Let’s keep valve radios going!
I offer full restoration, safety checks, servicing and repairs to valve radios Pre-1955. I can also convert your old valve radio to receive DAB,FM and Internet radio broadcasts… RING ME!
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.
FROM THIS…TO THIS>>>
