"A customer sold me this 1946 Motorola TV, and I had no idea what I would do with it. I knew I could make it a Bluetooth speaker for sure, but that only used half of its potential. I realized my tablet screen was about the same size as the TV screen. I decided I would cut a slot into the side of the TV so I could slide my tablet inside so it would become the TV screen. So now you can pair your tablet to the speaker, slide it in the slot, and enjoy!

We call it Netflix and chill!"

Replacing Family Heirlooms

"A customer came in requesting the same clock radio her father had given her mother when they were dating and cherished all there life. She knew the make, model and color. I managed to locate one for her, but it was in need of some TLC. Neither the clock nor the radio worked. After a few minor surgeries, and a replacement motor the clock was working again and I made it Bluetooth compatible. She was so grateful to have a piece of her father back and it was useful for today."

Even Big Pieces Can Be Restored!

"We jumped at the chance to bring this beautiful RCA Victor, Orthophonic High Fidelity console from 1957, which was ahead of its time as the first year to include a stereo, to 2023 with Bluetooth! Shined it up and brought back life to this cherished family heirloom!"

All Makes & Models Deserve Love

"A friend had this 1940's Philco AM/ short wave radio collecting dust and wanted to give it as a gift to his son-in-law. A new speaker, Bluetooth amplifier, fresh speaker cloth and a wooden facelift later. Presto! Beautiful vintage Bluetooth speaker made from a radio collecting dust."
