Welcome to Tom's Designer Radios website. My name is Tom Kipgen. I am retired salesman. Now I like working in my shop building various radio and guitar projects.

To see my projects, click on the links on the upper left. I sell a variety of crystal sets, tube radios as well as some other neat stuff.

Along with my radio projects, I sell catswhisker detector stands and coil winders and brass tube plate caps.

It's a new year and what better way to celebrate is to offer for your amusement, pleasure (and purchase) some new Oklahomean made radios. The weather has been crummy, so I've been inside building these radios left and right. I love making these sets, and am really tickled when they work too!

My other radios can be viewed by following my tube radios main page.

The LaserRadio

This Laser Radio I built on consignment for a gentleman in the Northeast. His inspiration came from the very first James Bond 007 movie from way back and he provided all the planned dimensions and hoped for features. After reviewing all his input I was able to explain what was possible and what was not and made suggestions for modifications as needed. The process required a good deal of communication as we worked through all of the details and the end results are just outstanding. Goto my LaserRadio page.

Thanks for stopping by!
