Nope to the alignment, I only touched up the chroma matrix using a vectorscope. before that the greens were either brown or blue. It only took a minor tweak but it made all the difference in the world.

I do plan to put the BK 415 on it soon to see if I can get the pic a bit sharper.

I have another CTC-5 that uses the super chassis, has a different chroma chassis that I will also be working on. It also has a 21AXP22 so it should be interesting to see them side by side.

I just found the correct pull knobs for the missing lowers, and thanks to Steve, I have an idea about the escutcheon need. I am going to see if I can find an oversized escutcheon (brass with squar hole) the file to the correct shape as its a very simple shape so I am pretty sure I can get it very close.

Dave,

You should post the photo of the lower Wingate door pulls I sent you. Someone out there may have a complete set from a junked Wingate. Who knows?

funny thing about that video of the wizard of oz, on my other sets I have the same issue with the tint range, you have to advance it much more toward green to get normal pictures. With other video sources the tint range is much more normal. I don't recall having issues with other DVDs so I assume its not the player but rather the DVD itself. odd....

this is what I found, maybe that key you linked is two part and I could use the backplate.

On Bob's link I asked them if its two pieces, and if so to get a pic of just the back plate. The pull part I found looks to be identical to the orig. I may just fab up the back plate based on Steve's pic as it does not seem to have any ornate decoration.

A while back, there was a discussion with comparison pictures of various Wizard Of Oz disc versions, and their hues varied quite a bit. If you don't have the newest version that was released a couple of years ago, it might look better than older ones. It certainly looks fantastic on Blu-ray.
