My son and picked up a Dumont RA-109-A3 "Sherbrooke" yesterday. We drove out to Platteville, WI to get it. It was listed on craigslist. We carried it home on my car's DIY roof rack. We pulled the chassis and broken crt before we lifted the cabinet. I didn't realize how heavy Dumonts are. The set is missing the speaker/output transformer, some knobs, phono cartridge and the back cover. The 19AP4 crt was cracked open under the tube base, useless.
Does any one have a picture of the back cover of this set?

Ed,

Your back is probably very similar to my Westbury. My 19AP4 is dead too. Some day I may just have to sub in a 17BP4 or such. I may have few spare knobs around here some place.

Thanks for posting the picture Kevin. I'll post a few pictures of the cabinet/ knobs in a day or two.

Well, I finally got to recapping this set a few weeks ago. I purchased a used 19AP4c CRT from the ETF this last summer. I still have to test and repair the phonograph yet.
