About Us

We are an LLC with a workforce of one. I make nearly all of the 300+ different parts for antique vacuum-tube radios. I started making parts about 15 years ago when I needed a grommet for the RF section of a Philco radio.

After making several grommets for myself, I put them up for sale on my web site where my restored radios were displayed. People began buying them, and asking if I could make other various rubber parts. One thing led to another, and pretty soon I was making a large variety of rubber products.

Once I had some experience making molds, I was talked into trying to make reproduction radio knobs. Knobs used to be available from California, but that source dried up when the person making them became ill. Now, Renovated Radios is the only source for repro radio knobs for early radios from the 1920's to the 1960's.

This project has certainly kept me busy in my retirement. Busier than I had expected, but very rewarding. I no longer have time to work on radios, but I take solace in knowing that I'm enabling others to get the old technology working again.

Please let me know if you find errors on this site or if something is not working as it should, and especially if you can add a model number for a particular part. Just go to the "CONTACT US" section and fill out the form.
