Salvaged parts can really look like junk until they are cleaned and sorted. Unfortunately, both the dial-scale and the loudspeaker in this box have seen better days.

At first glance, the title of this article would seem to be completely foreign to vintage radio. However, as you’ll quickly see, it’s now becoming increasingly difficult to source many vintage radio parts. Genuine spares are rare and are becoming rarer. Certainly, it’s not unusual to hear someone ask where they can get parts for an XYZ radio, "to get it looking and working like it did in 1925" or some other similar question.
