Waiting time..

 CLOSED!!!!!! I’m not taking on new work until the early Summer 2020!!!

I am now CLOSED for business until after Christmas and the temporary move to Marlow in Buckinghamshire has taken place.


I appreciate that this isn’t good news if you want a job completed and I do apologise. I’m also apologising to one or two people who have left enquiries on by phone. These calls will NOT be answered as basically I’m not in the workshop for a while.


NO NEW WORK WILL BE TAKEN ON FOR A WHILE! I’m still happy to talk and take expressions of interest so please ONLY email me… This situation will be temporary until around March/April 2020.


There will be further changes in the New Year as Dab Hand Radio will be changing emphasis towards smaller jobs and towards more restoration work rather than DAB/Internet conversions.



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

10.  Mr M. Dixon  11. Mr P. Wheldon


(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!

 

 


 LEGACY ITEMS!!!


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…


 

SERVICING/REPAIRS/SALES..


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!

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.
