Never Plug in a Vintage Radio
Never Plug in a vintage radio, that hasn't been working for a long time, as a risk of an electrical shock may be present or it could do further damage to the electrical components of the set. There could also be a possible fire hazard. Over time the components can tend to dry out and there electrical characteristics change.
Care should be taken if a tube is removed from the set. Make sure it is unplugged.The best option is to remove it by holding the base of the valve and move it gently from side to side whilst pulling upward. Sometimes there may not be enough room or it may have an interference shield base that is rivetted to the chassis and the only option is to remove it while holding the glass body. If this is the only option as it is with miniature tubes take note where the number is on the valve and be aware not to put your fingers over the number as it can be very easily wiped off. If you have a valve that you can't quite read the number, sometimes breathing over the tube can cause a misting over the glass and sometimes reveals the number. Another option could be, use a torch on different angles.
