Over a period of about a year or two, I repaired about 14 various
console radios that were given to me in non-working condition.
Though one collector in Ohio gave me $75 a piece for six of them...
in the last 20 years he was the only taker and I now cannot even give
them away. (I'm in Wisconsin and was able to deliver them on a trip to PA)
Recently on the local Craig's List under the "wanted" section I found a
guy who was looking for old tube "equipment" and he said he'd give me a
few bucks for two or four of them.
Glad he was honest when I asked what he was going to do.
He was going to toss the cabinets and simply "part them out".
I declined to sell.
