Thanks to a comment in a slashdot post I found a couple of books on how to build your own radio from scratch, admittedly the first book is crystal radios, and the second is mostly how to make your own tubes, but he does end with making your own transistors.

On the author's web page I found Lindsay Technical Books.

If you needed to rebuild civilization from scratch, they have the right books.

For instance one of the collections is Build a metalworking shop from scrap. The first book in the series is how to build your own foundry using a pail, some clay, a steel pipe, and some charcoal.

It seems like most things that a household might want to have that was produced up until about 1920 can be made by someone tinkering at home.

this is how the norwegian underground communicated during the nazi occupation (to unintentionally tie your two posts together).
