Default Reference books

Good evening,

Can anyone recommend a good reference book for valve radio restoration. I have had a search online and Tony Thompson comes up, however the books do not seem to be in print.

Thanks,

James

Chas Miller's Valve Radio and Audio Repair Handbook.
It also seems to be out of print, but there are a couple on eBay.

As a bit of a Novice myself I found this book quite useful: -

"Teach yourself Radio Servicing - L Butterworth

Published by English Universities Press, 1964


Sincere apologies for the oversight in my last Post above, I should have included this link
