Hello from SE Michigan

Longtime radio collector who just picked up a Dumont RA-105 in a blonde Colony cabinet. I am also looking at an RCA 8-T-241, one of these may be my first television restoration.

Welcome aboard! There is much collective knowledge here, especially with those two treasures! Your area is like mine, these beauties sometimes just Turnip (smirk!)

Nice sets, but 2 of the most cap heavy sets out there. You will think you've done a fleet of radios by the time your done, and then you'll still have some troubleshooting and a bunch of adjustments left...I'd probably start on a common mid 50's-60's set or a Muntz.

+1 . I've done at least 10 sets similar to your 8T241 and the resistor networks still give me nightmares from time to time.
