Ah, I see. How diabolical of those companies to use the same part number for different components

So, I guess I am looking for one of the following:

Miller 4526
Thordarson HVO-50
Merit TV-231
Meissner 19-3210

Regards,

IIRC, Spellman made the actual coil - others just branded it as theirs. Spellman KV-1 was the coil for sets with one rectifier, and the KV-2 was for those with two 1B3's.




So you can add the Spellman KV-1 to your want list. I remember seeing Spellman coils at a now-defunct store in Virginia Beach called Grand Junquection. Lots of oddball antique electronics, an a bunch of NOS Millen, Spellman and Layne stuff - presumably from GE plant move from NY to Virginia. I got the resistors - GE part numbered stuff, and they scrapped the yokes and LV transformers, but with Tesla coils being popular, they sold the Spellman stuff.

Spellman is still around, and still in the HV business:

Thanks! The 10-15 KV-1 does look like the transformer in my set, with 7 pie windings in the top section. So, here is my revised want list:

Miller 4526
Thordarson HVO-50
Merit TV-231
Meissner 19-3210
Spellman 10-15 KV-1

Meanwhile, I'm making progress in troubleshooting the rest of the TV while using the outboard Westinghouse HV supply, but that's not an ideal long-term solution.

Have you tried contacting Spellman? They may surprise you with either a NOS or current production alternative....

Spellman's current business seems to involve extremely expensive gizmos for hospitals and the like, but I did send them an inquiry. Maybe some coot in a dark basement will get a laugh out of it, anyhow.

You might have better luck calling and ask to talk to an old timer.

Thanks for the link. That's an interesting item.

I eventually found someone (Andy Cuffe) who was able to repair my old transformer. So I'm back in business with the original part. Thanks, Andy!

Along the way, I did try the salvaged Westinghouse HV supply from Charles, as well as a Merit HVO-34 transformer. Neither was a good long-term solution, for different reasons.

I should edit the title of this thread to eliminate the Miller 4526 reference. It turns out that this HV supply is not the RF type, as I believed back when I started.

I don't think she really has much left after all these years. Last update was several years ago, based on my Archive of the site on my WIN-XP machine....

I had to go to Pearisburg once and called about her RCA parts - damp boxes and no flybacks, so I skipped the trip to see the stuff..her PDF of parts was last updated in 2008. I called in 2010, when I had to go west to get some Public Surplus test equipment in Washington County VA - was making a stop in Pearisburg, so I called about her stuff..
