Is Ben Rentschler still around doing them?

No - Ben had Radios Reborn in Miles City - but Ben passed away almost a year ago.

I would be interested in your project.

Do you just need it to work, or do you want it restored?
I may be able to replace the dried out capacitors, and give it a good cleaning, but it would no longer be OEM.

What year and model is it from?

Thanks, Tim

I would like to have the radio in my 1947 ford tuned up. It works but only gets stations on 1/2 of the dial and its not as loud or clear as it should be. Feel free to get back to me on working on it, at your convenience, this spring. Call 232-3074 or 232-2134. Thanks.

I have a 1947 Crosley console that I was hoping to fix.... Dang, came across the Radio's Reborn listing a couple of weeks ago and was planning to contact the business. Is there someone in Billings or Forsyth who works on old tube type units?

I am just setting up shop at the moment, I have the '51 Chrysler radio on the bench.
When I work through that, I would like to look at the other items requested on here.
I will post some updates as I work through my first tube radio in 30 years...
If all goes well, I will open up for more projects.

Thank you for your interest and patience.
