Vintage Radio, T.V. and Equipment Knobs of the 1920's - 1970's

It is always my pleasure to offer these nice parts for the continuation and preservation of an important part of our history and culture. It is always my intention to list these Radio, TV and vintage knobs as accurately as possible. These knobs have come from many different places and experienced many different environments that add to their condition. At times, there can be non-visible defects. I personally clean and inspect each knob before listing. However, things can get missed and I hope this is not the case with the knob you are looking for. If this is the case, I do offer a 30 day return.

Please remember that these are vintage, old, antique & used parts going back some 40-90+ years. Unless otherwise noted – I sell them: AS IS - the way they are listed. Please check photos. Normal ware and age will almost always show. I try to clean them as good as I can and polish them to being out their original beauty. If you have a question, please contact me ASAP. I am always listing more Radio / TV tubes / parts and knobs here on eBay.

Most used knobs have minor chips, molding marks, minor nicks, scratching, fading, yellowing and may look well used. PLEASE check photos - I will point out what I believe is an imperfection to be noted about the knob on the listing.


My Name is Dave. I have been into Radio parts since the mid 1970's. My Father Henry was a Radio and Television repairman and technician for over 75 years. Way back in the mid 1960's he started repairing and restoring Vintage Radios and T.V's to sell at numerious Antique shows, flea markets and Antique Shops. Over those many years he restored 1,000's Radios and TV's. He continued his radio TV work until his death in 2009.

My Dad passed on a lot of wisdom to me. In 2005 I started to sell Radio and TV tubes, knobs, parts here on ebay and at the Illinois Antique Radio Club meet "Radiofest" in Aug each year. It is always my policy to offer quality vintage radio and TV items at a fair price here on eBay.

Like many people, I both buy AND sell on ebay. I try, as a seller, to always treat folks the way that I, as a buyer, would want to be treated. That is, with professionalism, kindness, honesty and respect.

Rest assured I describe my items honestly and I do so to the best of my amateur ability, I ship as soon as possible after payment, usually within 24 hours and I am always willing to answer questions as best I am able. I appreciate your interest in my items and auctions.

I try to always practice the Golden Rule and treat others as I would like to be treated. My goal is a mutually satisfactory transaction. If ever there is a problem you need only email me and we will work it out together. Thank you!

Blessings. Dave P.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: What makes these Vintage Knobs that you list so shiny? Is there a gloss coating on them like clear coat or polyurethane?

A: NO! There is no clear coat or polyurethane on the knobs I offer here (unless noted). I use a special polish that rejuvenates the wood, plastic, Bakelite and I polish them to the best shine I can get from them - The shine does not last, I suggest you polish the knob when you receive it with a microfiber cloth and a standard furniture polish or use boiled linseed oil on the cloth and buff to the desired shine.

Q: How old is this knob?

A: I ofter generalize the date of the knob manufacturer period or used period of that knob (1930's-40's). I do not consider myself an expert on knobs or Radio Equipment, so the dates of most of these knobs I list here are guesses. I often have those folks that ARE and have a better knowledge in this area correct me on my listing and I appreciate them for doing that. in most cases I can make an accurate guess based on styling and composition of the knob to a relatively close date and particular knobs are dated based upon their styling for a particular manufacture and production line of a model of that radio or tv.

Q: So why FREE Shipping? If I buy a couple of knobs or a bunch of items from you is it still free?

A: I am like you, I am much more likely to buy something if the shipping is FREE, Com'on who does not like free shipping? Bottom line: FREE SHIPPING no matter the quantity you buy from me - no kidding. I do combine shipping where I can.

Q: Why is Shipping to Canada not free?

A: Shipping to Canda is not as easy to process as general shipping to the USA and simply is expensive. I keep my shipping lower than the actual cost. so you do save a little there at least.

Q: Why do you list many of your knobs individually and not in sets?

A: I have found over the many years of selling RADIO & TV Knobs that most of my customers only need 1 knob and not a set. I get that, in many cases, I have only one of a particular knob and will hold it back from listing until a mate can be found for it or enough to complete a 3-4 piece set. If I do have a nice set I will often list them together. Basically, I would rather list them separately so if you only need one you do not need to pay the set price and be forced to have a second knob just sitting around when someone else may have the need for just one knob too.

Q: What happens if I buy a knob and it does not fit or work right on my particular Radio, TV or equipment? or what if I am not happy with the item?

A: I gladly offer a "no hassle" 30-day return policy. Often I can work something out with you if you contact me first. If you choose to return an item- Just pay to ship for the return and after receiving the item back, I will refund your money that you originally paid. (Please see REFUNDS AND RETURNS for complete details)

Q: What if I am looking for a particular knob or knobs and I can not find it in your listing?

A: You can ALWAYS ask a question and I will do my best to see if I have what you are looking for. I will not guarantee I will have it but I can look or recommend a place where I have see it available for sale.
