A CTC16 metal cabinet

A customer actually brought this to me about a week ago. It was shipped to him in a box barely big enough to fit the uncushioned TV. As you can see the neck of the original CRT took one good hit. The socket is shattered and pushed about a 1/4 inch in revealing the copper evacuation seal. The tube tests great and gives a picture. The VHF tuner shaft was damaged. I still have some vertical work to do. Original flyback that shows very little wax leakage and runs at 204 milliamperes. This set is from Memphis. I would have driven to get it if it were mine. More pictures soon!

Neat. Bet there aren't many roundies left in New Orleans.

Off topic - I was out your way today and noticed Phil's TV is now an urban barber shop That leaves you, Airline Park, Hymel's, McCann, and maybe Fogarty's - is he still doing house calls?

I think Airline is still doing them. I do limited calls. McCann is very expensive and I don't think too many people use them for house calls.
That roundie came from Memphis. Mine came from Mark in Wisconsin.
The more roundies the better!

Here it is a few weeks later. It's repair ticket looks like Charles Manson's rap sheet. The CRT has held it's vacuum and it's 90% done. New tube sockets, 6GH8's, color crystal, some silver micas and a lot of labor!

All I seem to do these days is CRT HD rear projection sets, so yes its’ a service call. If the customer is cool I will replace the STK chips in the home. Some people have a problem with you taking over the breakfast bar with bright lights and soldering equipment. Back in the 80’s I made a business case for doing CRTs’ in the home. It was cheaper to send one guy out twice in two days with than 2 guys twice for pickup and delivery. The customer was way impressed seeing their TV gutted lying face down only to have it rise from the dust with a perfect picture.
