Title: Hi from Des Moines
Post by: robsradioactive on July 14, 2018, 04:42:49 PM
Hello all!
Been a lurker here for a little while and finally signed up today. I've been working on vintage and new electronics, off and on, for 35 years since I graduated from a community college electronics service program. Since then I have worked as a service technician, plant electrician (and systems repair guy), among other things. Later went back to school for my BS in Manufacturing Technology, and worked as an engineer--but mostly dealing with welding and production improvements. Electronics was just a hobby by then.
Three and a half years ago I went into business full time in fixing, restoring, buying and selling old electronics including tube radios and record players, vintage electronics test equipment, guitar amps, audio amps and solid state HiFi from before about 1983 vintage.

Welcome!  It always helps to have some trained eyes following our speculations.

Welcome to the forum Rob!

I look forward to learning how your business operates.

In PA-MD-NJ-NY, we have too few techies around and too many projects waiting in our own collections ::)

Gary Stork at VM Enthusiasts is the go-to guy for anything for a phonograph.  Google is your friend.  Good luck.
