I NOW ONLY REPAIR BUSH VALVE RADIOS FROM THE 1940s AND EARLY 50s
Please contact me before posting your radio because I now only work on certain Bush models from the 1940s and early 50s. Initially, you can check this LIST for items that I don’t deal with. Please watch the video before posting your radio.
Be sure to pack your radio well. The first thing to do is place a sheet of thick cardboard over the dial glass and the speaker cloth or grille. Make sure that the mains plug, if fitted, is wrapped separately in a piece of bubble wrap and placed well away from the dial glass or other fragile part of the radio.
It’s best to pack the radio in a sturdy cardboard box, with plenty of bubble wrap or cushioning material such as polystyrene beads around the cabinet, and then place that box inside another box with more of the same cushioning material between the two boxes. The radio must NOT be tightly packed. It will need to have some movement within the bubble wrap which acts as a cushion against knocks.
I don’t have a supply of decent cardboard boxes so your radio will be returned to you in the box you sent it in. Put bluntly… If the box is flimsy and the radio is at risk of damage, on your head be it.
