Hi from South Wales, UK

Ive been lurking for a while, enjoying the threads on this Forum.

Although the TV sets here are different (apart from some similar Sony models) Its still fun to peek into a workshop overseas!

I do have a genuine American built Pilot X65 radio though--1936, still working well!

Ive been doing some experiments in CRT rejuvenation. Ive had some good success with Sony trinitron type--Thought 'unboostable' here in the UK....

If anyone is interested, I'll post up what I did....

Hello and thanks for posting here. Its great to see and hear of TV-Radio in the "parallel universe" Many places in Southeastern Pennsylvania are named after Welsh towns.
The "solid state" color section is where you will find Sony folks. I would like to see what you did to restore a Sony CRT!
