NJARC Parts and Radio Repair Programs
The New Jersey Antique Radio Club offers members several resources for obtaining restoration parts and information:
Tube Program: Our first and most popular member benefit: a convenient source of affordable vacuum tubes
Capacitor and Resistor Programs: The most commonly needed parts for radio restoration available at member-only prices.
Schematic Program: Radio schematic diagrams available from our Rider's collection.
Radio Repair Clinics All-day Saturday repair and restoration workshops conducted several times a year.
NJARC Mailing List (e-mail Reflector) Send and receive email messages about antique radio collecting to others on the list.

 

The NJARC Tube Program:

Yes, tubes are getting hard to find, but our Tube Program offers members access to a great selection of new and used-tested vacuum tubes at bargain prices. Much of our inventory is obtained through generous donations from members excess inventory. We also purchase tubes at auction and elsewhere to keep up our inventory of the less common types.

Every vacuum tube in our inventory has been cleaned, tested and boxed by volunteer labor, and tubes are sold at low member-only prices. Because of this, tubes from the NJARC tube program are for personal restoration use only, not for resale. Our tubes are priced well below market value, with most common tubes selling for only a dollar each, and rarer pieces at a significant discount compared to commercial sources.

Thse NJARC Tube Program is administered by Al Klase. Al  brings a selection of the most commonly- needed tubes to each meeting and to every swapmeet. If you need a particular tube, contact him a week before the meeting and he'll make every effort to bring what you need. You can reach Al by telephone at 908-892-5465 or by email at tubes@njarc.org to inquire about availability of a particular tube or to donate any extra tubes from your collection to the club.

The NJARC Capacitor and Resistor Programs:

Because we believe that everyone should see Heckle And Jeckle cartoons projected off of celluloid at least once,

Capacitor Programs:

Capacitors and resistors are the most commonly needed parts for any electronic restoration and our Programs make these parts available at member-only prices. We maintain an inventory of the most commonly-needed sizes of capacitors and resistors and buy in bulk so these parts are always available at wholesale prices to our members.

NJARC Radio Repair Clinics:

Our Repair and Restoration Clinics are held several times a year. These are all-day (10 am - 4 pm) events are conducted at different locations around the state, usually at our InfoAge headquarters in Wall Township. Some are conducted as "members only" events, and some are open to the public. Specific information about upcoming workshops is posted on the home page of this website and is announced in our newsletter The Jersey Broadcaster. Members are encouraged to sign up to bring a restoration project for evaluation. Club members with expertise in different areas of radio restoration volunteer their time to serve as instructors and problem-solvers. (Note: volunteers are requested to arrive at 9 am for setup.)

For those sessions open to the public: Please register ahead of time: email Richard Lee to reserve a one-hour time slot with an expert. The club will provide you with a comprehensive evaluation of your radio and recommendations regarding it's restoration and repair. Often, the problem is very simple -- so you might even leave with a working radio!

Members of the public are encouraged to join NJARC to have the opportunity to develop the basic skills which will allow you to perform many simple radio repairs.

We conduct a "Beginner's Workshop" for those new to radio collecting and repair. Workshop schedules are announced at meetings, in our newsletter and on our website as they are scheduled.

Our volunteer instructors will have test equipment available such as meters, signal generators and oscilloscopes. Members are requested, however, to each bring a basic set of tools with them for use on their project: screwdrivers, wrenches, wire cutters, soldering iron, etc.

You can reach Richard Lee by telephone at (914) 589-3751 if you have any questions.
