Great, I Want YOU to Service My Radio - How Do We Proceed ?
A brief phone call is welcome, but the number of available options is far too
great to discuss in depth while I'm working on a customer's unit.  Prices and
options are on the right side of this page above the band pictures, as well as
on the work order you will be printing and filling out to send with your radio.

Anything discussed on the phone is NOT an agreement.  When you print and
fill out a work order stating your options and preferences, THEN we have an
agreement once I collect payment.  
If you don't have it IN WRITING, I didn't say
it.  And if it's not on the work order, you didn't request it and it won't be done.
IN WRITING.  I do not
participate in "handshake" deals or gentlemen's agreements, as doing this
leaves too much room for misunderstandings and arguments later on.

Since most new customers ask the same questions, I do ask the customer to
first click on any of the flashing purple rectangles you see here BEFORE calling:

If you still have questions, of course you are welcome to call or E-mail me.
Please note that I don't do business or advertise locally, and thus do not
need to keep normal business hours.  I typically work in shifts between 24
and 36 hours, then sleep for 16 hours with zero regard to the time of day.
(You might notice that many of my videos are made in the middle of the night)

Once you have chosen your options and preferences, it's time to print and
fill out a work order.  To do that, simply click on any of the flashing GREEN
rectangles you see below - or to go straight to the work order, click  

MOST IMPORTANT !  You MUST pack your radio MY WAY to protect the long
and delicate control shafts.  Replacement controls are ONLY available from a
similar unit, and I don't buy entire units because of carelessness in packing.

BUSINESS AGAIN.  The customer must instinctively know that you can't just
throw a radio into a box with a few peanuts and expect it to arrive safely.

Why will I
permanently drop careless packers?  It is because if a warranty
issue should arise (extremely rare in my shop) and the radio needs to be
sent back, a broken control from careless packing at THIS point creates a
huge mess that I'm neither getting paid to deal with, nor am I WILLING to.

A radio, even as a core, is useless without controls.  Hundreds of radios
out there with broken controls DRIVE UP THE PRICES OF GOOD ONES!
I am extremely firm about this, yes - but don't get mad at ME - because
I'm speaking for the guy who just paid $1000 for a NONWORKING core.

Your radio MUST be packed EXACTLY as shown in this video:

Technics RS-858US QUAD Recording Deck
Click on image for super-size view
In beautiful cosmetic and fully operational condition, this machine has been my reference deck for making my own
test and alignment tapes.  With a lifetime supply of test tapes, I no longer need this excellent machine since I listen
to 8 tracks all day long when servicing customers' machines.  Many customers ask me which machines are the best
and safest investments, and this is the one I recommend when they're asking about a QUAD deck.

Realistic TR-169 Small Component Player
With a rear panel output level control and a tiny footprint, this is the perfect deck for transferring your 8 tracks to
computer files.  Many 8 track machines produce output levels a little too "hot" for a computer sound card, making
the output level control a very handy feature.  This deck is small enough to tuck just about anywhere.  This model
is so trouble-free that Radio Shack was still showing it in their 1990 catalog, long after everyone else had stopped
offering them.  See a video of this actual machine by clicking
