: Here's a guide to the repair and restoration of radios of the vacuum-tube era, about 1920-1960. It is written for anyone with some curiosity about what makes the old sets tick. The text is intended to be basic enough for a non-technically educated person to grasp easily, yet it includes enough theory for a technician or engineer to learn more about this rapidly disappearing technology. This book, 300 pages, 80 illustrations, is not a "Radio for Dummies" treatment, nor is it intended to be a text on electronic theory. It focuses mainly on the practical aspects of troubleshooting and correcting problems. Woven in with the practical meat-and-potatoes of radio servicing is just enough theory to give a beginner a good understanding of the principles of radio receiver operation. Along with the practical and theoretical material, the reader is treated to a thorough indoctrination in the various components found in old radios, shop practice, safety hints and lots more related information and material.
