I haven't personally dealt with this company, but a browse of their website shows that they stock a wide range of components which would be useful to those who repair & restore vintage radios, etc., and to the guitar fraternity. They are based in the USA, but will ship internationally, though the cost of shipping and the delivery times involved varies widely. A number of options are mentioned on site.
Amongst other things they stock are Electronic Vibrators to replace the mechanical types used in 1950s car radios, Electrol;ytic and other capacitors, including dual & multiple can-types, Grille Cloth, knobs, including 'chicken head' types, potentiometers in various spindle types, etc., etc. One caveat is that any switched potentiometers are likely only to be single pole types made for 120v AC mains. Go to for further details. The site is headed 'Antique Electronic Supply

I forgot to mention that also stock the type of grommets used to mount record player motors. They sell them in packs of ninefor (U.S.)$6.75, which works out at 75c. (about 60p) each (subject to carriage charges and possible VAT of course.

Hi folks,

I have received very good value from:-

Caps suitable as cathode decouplers, and some hi-voltage poly film caps useable for valve gear.

Antique Electronic Supply:-

Is based in the USA so we Brits have the penalty of postage from the land of Uncle Sam but they do have a large stock of hard to get parts geared towards guitar amp applications.

Default Thank You Cricklewood Electronics

I just wanted to put out a mention and massive thank you to Cricklewood Electronics. Mentioned in this forum as a trusted supplier.

Really very very helpful, they found everything I need on thier shelf and it's in the post tonight.

Highly recommended to talk to on the phone, my order/begging for help email for capacitors, resistors and a volume pot was answered within a couple of hours, and one very pleasant phone call with Syd about 'this and that' just now and the parts are on the way....

It hopefully won't be long before my garrard sings again.
