The list below shows suppliers in North America for parts and restoration supplies for antique radios, electronic phonographs, tape decks, and TVs.  This list is intended for suppliers that serve unique needs in the vintage electronics community, so the big modern electronics supply houses like Mouser, Newark, and Digi-Key are not included.

This list will be edited and kept up to date as new information becomes available.  Please contact me via email if you would like to recommend another supplier to add, or if you have had any problems with a listed supplier or find that a supplier is no longer in business.

A similar list is being maintained on the Antique Radio Forum here:  ARF Supplier List .

For a similar list of European suppliers, see Aren van Waarde's post below (5th post in this thread).

Thank you, Tom, that you did solve the question.
We might add also sources for batteries (and other things). I just saw that does not function - but we know also (without the 3W). But may be there are specialized services for our concerns?

I add here a few links to articles which deal with this problem:

Very important is NiMH Battery packs for High Voltage.
Connections is an other topic: Replacing special Batteries by Battery Packs.
Naturally charging Ni-MH battery packs is an other problem to solve.

I see that under the term sources this thread is not within the first. Sources (not resources) has therefore to be used here more often like suppliers, supply, vintag, radios, parts, tubes, repair, repairs, reproduction, restoration, renewal, renovation, service, spair, correction, mending, rebuilding etc. I think suppliers and sources are the most wanted?

Dear Tom,

your list is a valuable tool to find anything related to vintage electronics parts. I would submit a couple of additional sites tried successfully in the recent years.

For parts, manuals, test gears and vacuum tubes I found a wide line of products at Fair Radio.

For manuals I would like to suggest also W7FG.

Thank you, Emilio, for the links to Fair Radio and W7FG.  As you can see, they've both now been added to the list.

Ernst, I don't yet have a good listing for battery suppliers, but will see if I can find a company that is a good source for batteries for antique radios.

More suggestions are welcome!

Dear all,
Ernst Erb asked me to prepare a short list of hyperlinks leading to suppliers for antique radio (and amplifier) rebuilding/restoration in Europe, based on information presented on my own website. NB some companies are aimed at high-end tube amplifier building rather than radio restoration, although they may supply parts which are of interest for radio enthusiasts. Additions to the list are welcome!
NB By August 15, 2017 seven links proved to be broken. The companies seem to have gone out of business, thus their links have been deleted. I have added several links about suppliers of turntable needles and other turntable-related items (cartridges, arms, record cleaning devices, etc).

Dear Hans-Werner,

Apologies for this (probably very late) response: the company Williges Elektronik has been added to the list. It is a nice company (and not very far from my home town!)

Best regards,

Pacific TV was mentioned as a source for tubes, but I would like to point out that they are also a good source for some obscure schematics (especially some Canadian products), and have been continually adding more to their library:

Edit: I tried to post the link to their schematic page, but when I try to submit the post, it keeps giving me an error message telling me that my post contains a link.

Anyway, it's easy to find the schematics from Pacific T.V.'s main page.

(Please use the link icon within the editor to set a link, thank you)
