Hi Jerome,

No, Scotty was on his own this time. Nobody filmed it. However when we go back next time we will document on video and stills, the procedure as a re-enactmant of the actual event, when we rebuild the next tube.

I know it won't be authentic, and it loses some of the excitement, and that it will not be the genuine article, but it's the best we can offer. We have been down this road before, and there have been several filmed attempts that failed. So I guess our attitude became, that we would wait for success before making another trip to document another failure.

But fear not, we WILL have documentation to show the world how it was done, if and when we are successrul.

Perhaps NOT being there this time, will add a extra measure of success. Perhaps our constant pressence, pushing for success in the past, may have been a jinx. :-)

The 19V is closer to the 21AX. The 19V was the first tube to use photo deposition of phosphor dots directly to the inside face of the tube.


Kevin, Georgeous screen shot of your 21AX. I would want to save that tube too. The color saturation is fantastic. I hope my CTC4 looks that good when I get around to restoring it.

Bob

Thank You, gentlemen, for the kind words. It was a labor of love to restore that chassis, and I took my time and documented the whole process. I have a restored 5N chassis waiting to be reunited with its cabinet, and a blonde 7 that I am digging out right now. Two good spare 21CY's too. Much to keep me out of trouble this fall and winter!
Kevin
