You have a knack for finding sets with mouse nests in them. Consider yourself lucky though, I read a story here about someone who got a set with a live wasp nest in it, and didn't find out until he was driving home with it.

That particular unit seems pretty advanced for its age, having FM.

The 109 I got for $20 ended up being fully restored, but the picture tube was toast. All but two of the missing knobs were in a styrofoam coffee cup sitting inside the cabinet

Also got that working Admiral 7" for $100. Works nicely. Gonna open it up when I get time just to see what's what in there....for my own curiosity's sake.

A ctc 4


When you have a 2,3,5 & 11 getting a 4 is a must, Just ask Miniman


The auction may have been silent but this item was speaking to me loudly!


How often do you come across a clean and beautiful example like this?

I was thinking "nice and clean" before I even saw this line. I reckon that CRT would test almost new.

I ended up with the following,

TV's Sony KV-9000 9" Trinitron with a strong tube and wonky vertical, Zenith N2270-6 21" B&W set with Space Command, works will get a restore as vert is touchy and audio is a bit low.
Video Recorders, Panasonic AG-DS860 S-VHS deck with TBC and component out, Sharp VC-NX1 multi standard VHS.
Video procession gear, Videotek Switcher and a Robot 1200C SSTV processor.

It was great seeing the old crowd again and meeting some new faces.
