I watch a lot of videos by Bruce Lach in Grand Rapids:

He does a lot of consoles that come from all over the country.

I had a Philco 38-7T cabinet done by him that came out nice. With the amount of work he does, patience is the key. I've had another piece there for over a year now :shock:

Yes, Bruce Lach. I've had him do some work for me and it was perfect.

If you're shipping it, might as well send it to Texas and have Fred Taylor, from here on the ARF, do it for you. It'll be done in a few weeks. Very nice work too!

Yea I just sent Fred my RCA 143 to do. But at $90 to ship it there I was thinking someone in state might save me some money. I did check Fred out and his work looks to be 2nd to none.

He did my 1936 Gilfillan 117X console cabinet recently (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=351724), so I know the pain of paying shipping. The pain left me, when the console returned.....

I'm a UPS commercial shipper, so I have a good rate, but Greyhound was about half of what UPS wanted...
