Not worth my while, there are much better sets to save.

I've still got it and the CRT did test good. I had planned to start on it over the holiday break at the end of last year but another project took longer than I expected. Maybe I will get to it this year.

Here is an update on this set. I took a real gamble bidding on it not knowing if the tube was good. I picked it up Saturday and it turns out that the CRT is very good on all three guns. The base is broken but the tube still works. Attached is a picture of it hooked up to the chassis from my good CTC-5. Obviously I did nothing to adjust the convergence as I didn't want to have to redo it when I put the chassis back in its cabinet.

I bought this for the CRT but I am probably going to restore the entire set. The chassis is not that bad and the sides of the cabinet with the fake grain cleaned up very nicely. I will replace the top and finish it and the front to match the sides. I will post a picture of it when it is done.

Whew, glad the jug was good! That's 2 good 21AXP22's found in 2 weeks including the one I got from Tom on ARF, so it looks like things are looking up!

I placed a fairly high bid on that from my phone while half asleep. When I saw the pictures on the computer I kinda panicked and retracted the bid. Glad you got it, I have no room for anything else period.

I finally got the chassis recapped and restored. I put it partially together to see what I get. The picture is not that bad. I did only a rough static convergence and no purity alignment. In fact, the purity magnets around the screen are not even installed. Of course I have a way to go yet and I will not have time to do anything to the cabinet until after ETF.

Looks like it'll have a nice picture once you get the purity assembly back in, it's got a little splotch in the upper left hand side.

I finally got around to finishing this set. I think that it turned out fairly nice considering what it looked like to start. Thanks to Bob Galanter and Steve Dichter for some of the missing and replacement parts. I still need a back and the safety glass so if anyone has these items and are willing to part with them please let me know.

The pictures are some before and after shots. I replaced the top and had to make a new board on which the chassis mounts and new boards on which the legs mount. The old ones were too rotted.

This set actually has a better picture than my deluxe CTC-5!

Hey Steve,

Beautiful restoration. I can't believe that's the same "junker" we loaded into your truck last April. Matching the finish on the replacement top is remarkable.The picture tube was a real bonus w/that CTC-5. Nice shot from the U.S. Open telecast.

-Steve D.

Very nice, Steve. That cabinet turned out great. Now you need to come to Florida and refinish my 21" Admiral faux finish blondie. :-)
