What's the CRT #? This would lead to a basing, which then would lead to a CRT socket. Or are you talking about the High Voltage anode lead?

Cheers,

The GE 817 uses a 12KP4.

If your talking about the base connector most B&W tubes from the late 40's through the late 50's were pretty much the same.

Same could be said for the high voltage connector too really.

Here's a whole bunch on ebay. I think you need the duodecal (12 pin) one.

http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_trkparm...4.l1513&_pgn=1

Another place to get one is from a CRT brightener like this. Just cutoff the brightener part and use the socket. You wouldn't need that blue wire, just the other 5.

Hey guy your the best and thanks for finding those. I think the second link is the best shot and looks like maybe it well fit.

But I have what you might think is a stupid question. Exactly what does this thing do. It appears to me that it just holds the wirs to the tube but does nothing else. If this is true then why can't the wires as I have them in the picture just be connected onto the post [the 5 posts on the left]?

What well happen if they were, I'm think that thats how someone had it.

You are correct - that's all it does. However, a proper socket will hold them more securely and safely. If one of those leads was to slip off or short to one of it's neighbors, bad things could happen.

Ron, that thing is a brightener, used to get a few more months of use out of a weak CRT.

I'm not totally clear on exactly what you need, is the tube missing it's base cap or do you need the socket that's wired to the chassis?

If you just need the socket you could cut the one off that brightener and wire it into your set then plug it onto the tube.

I coulda sworn there were some pictures in this thread before. Anyway, here's one Ron sent me earlier.

I don't know if this is how GE originally wired it or someone has done some work on it.
I recommended he post here to get some help.

I think and bandersen knows the name of it but it's just the connector to connect the 5 wires to the end of the CRT tube.

Banderson found this one and it looks like it might fit... but only need the five post as thats all the wires I have to connect to it

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-12-PIN-DUODE...item35ae5694da

In my pictures I have a picture of the wires where I just stuck them on the end of the tube, but I know there was suppose to be a connector there and Branerson found a picture of the same type chassis and it showed a half moon thing black in color that connected the wires.

Also a big question? which order do these wires connect. I swear I feel like I am walking through a mine feild and hoping I don't hit the trip wire

I have a copy of the orginal plans to the set but they don't show the wire colors. their are 1-x-orange, 2-x-black, 2-x-yellow total 5 wires...

Oh and just kinda wondering can a CRT tube just blow up messin with the wires?
