I find that book quite Ironic, as the Screwdriver experts guide was probably responsible for huge amounts of radios being damaged in the first place.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.

Possibly . But it got me interested in repairing them . I definitely remember breaking a few ferrite cores at the beginning when I got my first frequency counter . And then a few inductors as I tried to remove them to fix the cores :) All part of the learning curve :)

To be fair I've always wanted to learn how to diagnose and repair them, closest I've come is "Oh that power wire is broken, let me quickly crimp/solder that". My grandad used to own a small business fixing and repairing radios, anything from cb's, to taxis, even used to repair the radios for the local coppers back in the day. Unfortunately, reckon he's a bit old to teach me now...

Thanks to Lou Franklin, even to this day, when I get my grubby paws on another radio, I still run my multimeter across the power socket (both ways), looking for a blown reverse polarity protection diode, before I even consider powering it up :)
