Setchell-Carlson portable
Still looking for one of these as pictured above...

i have one in unknown condition.does nothing and i have not gotten a "round tuit"
looking for as found or a working one?

HadYourPhil 10-18-2010 02:22 PM

As found is fine. I'm looking for the "rectangularest" model, as shown. Hopefully a mostly complete one.

I have two of them in my collection. One is like the set shown in the picture. The other one is a wooden cabinet with a built on turntable. Both sets have a semi-unitized chassis made of aluminum. I don't think they ever made a set that was transformerless. One of the negatives is that they used National Video CRT's which were allways weak.

HadYourPhil 10-19-2010 09:58 AM

Hmmm... Now that I think about it, those were not the best of CRT's!
Can't say I ever saw the turntable model.

HadYourPhil 10-21-2010 06:54 PM

Never heard anything more from kc8adu. I'm still looking.

I have one just like your Avatar, it had a bad CRT though, I put one in that is the wrong number and it doesn't work correctly, it may be adaptable but I haven't really tried. (it needs a 19BRP4 I think)

I'd be willing to part with the set for practically nothing (or nothing) but the shipping from CA to FL would be killer.

I could send it without the tube which would make it much lighter.

I have that model but it is a really rough example, looks like somebody really beat it up. It does work, though it might have some bugs to work out. I would consider it a last resort.

HadYourPhil 10-22-2010 09:39 AM

Hmmmm.... I have a brand-new 19CUP4, but the operating parameters are quite different, especially on G2! The 'BRP4 is rated at 300v, while the 'CUP4 says 65v.
Raster cutoff is a negative voltage on the 'BRP4 (-35/-72), while the 'CUP4 says 25/50. And I would be clueless as to how to adapt it, without a peek at a schematic. I agree on shipping it tubeless!! Are you sure about the tube number?
The more I look at the differences between the tubes, the more I think there is no swap. And, on further discussion with other, those two tubes are incompatible. There are seven substitures listed for the 19BRP4, BTW.

iirc these use a common 110 degree crt.
back in the day i replaced a few.iirc the originals were failure prone.

Eric H 10-29-2010 01:59 AM

I don't know how common a 19BRP is but I've never run across one in the years I've had this set. I don't remember what tube I put in it but the operating voltages were different, it comes on but there is a giant dark spot from the center outward, it almost looks like the phosphors are blown off but I think it has more to do with the way the gun focuses on the screen.

Perhaps you could make one out of two, my cabinet and chassis which is in good shape and Bgadow's CRT?

HadYourPhil 10-31-2010 12:15 PM

(LOL) Now there's a possibility!
Maybe one of these would work better:
19DRP4 is listed as a "might work"...

HadYourPhil 11-21-2010 10:13 PM

And I am still looking.

I'm looking for a flyback.

Just finished watching Buckaroo Banzai (goofy 80's sci-fi movie) and it had this exact set!
