WTB: CRT and knobs

Hunting for a good 12QP4 or 12JP4 or 12RP4 or 12KP4 (drop my ion trap) CRT and knobs for a DuMont 103 Chatham a/k/a "Doghouse" set.

Please PM if you have any of these items and would be willing to part with them.

Thx.

I wonder if any non-TV people have heard of the doghouse moniker and actually turned one of these into a doghouse... for a very small dog?

Ha! Would be perfect for a Chihuahua! UGH! Not sure which is worse? Turning a set into a fish bowl or this idea . . .

Will a 12LP4 fit in that set? I think it's 1 1/4" longer.

According to the tube interchange book I have, the only three listed were the 12QP4, 12RP4 and 12JP4. It may indeed fit, but I really don't know. If the only difference is physical length and electronically it is a match, then maybe someone who knows could let us know that - chime in. Would be good to know.

A 12KP4 should work as well, it's basically an Aluminized 12LP4 with a short neck and no Ion trap. The 12LP4 would probably work but it would stick out past the back and there might not be enough room for the Ion trap.

From Vintage Ad browser it appears the knobs on the ETF television are the correct ones?

My knobs are like these shown on this RA103D
