Story about my collection in general
About this page
Measuring Equipment / TVs / Other
My collection consists mainly of European radios. In 1997, it started with
Grundig radio (3068), which my grandfather bought around 1959: Later on, a small classified ad in the local paper read "2 buizenradio's, 25 gulden" (2 tube radios, 10$). The good man even brought them to my home, too.
I bought 2 philips radios from him, a bx640a and a bx321a types. Not a bad start, I would say. It appeared both radio's only needed the power plug to be tightened, to work again. Nowadays I would never just "plug in" a fresh aquisition, but use some safer methods. Matter of experience, I admit it....
Later on, I paid regular visits to the recycling store, now and then taking home a "new" radio. My father, one of the last professional clock repairers in Holland (see also www.peters-clockshop.com), sometimes finds a nice asset for me on auctions and antiques fairs. One sunday, I was biking from the rowing club to home, and then I saw it standing at the side of the road. It was kind of dirty with sand and mud all over, and, above all, soaking wet. (it had been raining that night) I took it home on my bike. At home I wiped the outside clean with a soaky cloth, brushed out the inside with a hand wiper, and put it in the heater room to dry. Two weeks later I tried it, and it appeared to work fine..... Wat do you say tube technique is vulnerable?
The recycling store has been a good supply for old stuff for me. The b5x71a, a b5x63a, an Aether Kruiser AK1501, they all came frome there. Just as the Philips 2501. Looking back, it is hard to believe for me too, but it's true: The one and only first Philips radio, together with the power supply 372, and the remains of a 2026 "Chinese Hat" speaker. Since then, a lot of younger appliances have been added to the collection. Early 2000 I bought the entire "classic radio" stock from the recycling warehouse. (approx. 30 radios). I won't have nothing to do for a loooong time.... Some of the radio's I bought that day still haven't been paid attention to, so I've decided to sell of some, at real "hobby-prices"
About this page.
At the top you find 2 tables with links to 6 groups. Below you will find a table for each group separately. I have added bookmarks everywhere so that you can click through this page very quickly. In the group tables you will find type numbers (in some cases including brand name), in the future I will also add a thumbnail picture of each item. If you click the name of the item, you will be taken to a new page, on wich a photograph, and a brief description of the item. Unfortunately I will most probably NOT be translating all these pages to English in the near future, maybe some day... In the meantime texts will be in Dutch. Also, a indication of "collecting status" of the item is included. Appliances that are NOT marked "te koop" (=for sale) are NOT for sale!!!
