Restored versus Ruined

Original condition radios are becoming harder to find every day. Whenever possible original wood finishes should be cleaned and touched up. Avoid the urge to ever start sanding original wood veneers.

Don't plug that garage sale find into the first outlet available before checking the old capacitors. Toasted power transformers present a much more difficult restoration.
