Hello all, I used to collect old radios when I was much younger and single. (Had more money) and missed it. I decided to buy a few that are restored but also purchased a GE 115 with a hum, and a RCA Filteramic becasue it loks cool and it worked. The RCA needs a knob .Anyone have one? Also, I want to learn the fine art of repairing the electronics. Where is a good place to start? thanks

Welcome Superzee. To begin learning, I'd recommend Old Time Radios! Restoration and Repair, by Joseph Carr. You can order a used but in good condition copy from Amazon for under 9 bucks. You can't beat that deal with a stick.

Welcome, I just got a filteramic Model X4JE. My daily driver now, really nice sound, and there is the phono input. All the original tubes, too
Anyway, it seems like the volume knobs on the model are fragile.all the others I have seen on ebay have cracks or chips. Several members here sell knobs, when you get to that point, place an ad in the classifieds.
