Snagged a very decent Andrea TVK-12 and expect to be picking it up in a few days. The chassis looks like a DuMont (or DuMont inspired) model, such as an RA103. It appears to have the Mallory Inductuner. Anybody know much about these sets, any tips or comments about these models? I'll be doing the usual complete recapping and component checks and going from there. If there's any thing in particular I oughta look out for I'll appreciate the heads up! Haven't dug into a tv in a few months now so I'm getting' a little itchy for some new fun!

Nice sets. I have one on my bench now...been there ready for months, but I only have the E-caps restuffed at this moment...been busy with other things. I was lucky enough to get a parts set as mine looks like it probably had a lightening strike to the antenna.

Ouch! That could be very damaging, hope the jolt didn't get in far. They're not the worlds rarest tv but interesting and visually stimulating. And if they are DuMont (or DuMont) clones the circuitry is very good and a real pleasure to work on!
