I came across a few sets that were made by a company call: MP Television. They were located in Fairfield, Conn.

I found these while researching MP Engineering Corp. - maker of audio gear back in the 40s, 50s and 60s.
I have three different models. I also have the original, hand drawn, full size schematics.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rider published service information for a probable 12 inch model in Vol 5 and for probable 16 and 17 inch models in Vol 8.

It might make an interesting comparison. (I don't have a copy.)

Thanks for the tip. I know very little about televisions (my obsission is tube audio). Until this post, I was not aware of the Riders manuals. Are the volumes you mension available online?

Both sets are similar, slight differences in vertical sweep.
Four stages of IF, Standard Coil penthode tuner, simple AGC with a local-distance switch, intercarrier audio, synchro-guide horizontal and 5U4, power transformer power supply.
Appears to be a set for custom installation, per the instructions. :scratch2:

Diesel,
Can I ask where you found this information? Was it in the Riders Manual? I would really like to see where it was published.
From what I was told, there were relativity few of these made. I also know MP made a 20" version that they called "The Super Twenty"
I'd be interested in knowing if anyone has an MP Television or has ever seen one.

Thanks.
