Yours was first!

I sent a message as soon as I saw this, perhaps I can convince him to sell me the whole set instead of parting it out? Wouldn't that be a shame!

I notice that he says it was sitting in a store window for 45 years and the cabinet is bare, from what I presume was the sun beating on it. Wouldn't this damage the phosphor coating on the CRT too?

I am still a novice in this area, but I just wonder...

"Will ship insured UPS"




Please God, NO! Better insure it for $5,000, I promise he'll collect on that one. Those freaks destroyed a 21" tube Scotty sent me, you can see the results in my signature.

It's too bad he won't keep this whole set together.

Interesting double reflection in the picture of the CRT face.

Don't be too sure, he just replied to my message.

Looks like I might own a CT-100!

I hope you get the whole set Nick. I believe that there is someone who had repro vertical convergence transformers for the CT-100 made and is selling them on the ETF classifieds.

You NEED a CT-100 it is all that is keeping you from having every color RCA chassis from prototype to CTC 4.

Maybe after that you can get the ones between CTC 4 and 9 and start your own RCA color museum.

It's official, I am the new owner!

Bonus info:

He has already completely recapped the chassis and done an alignment on it, so my road ahead will be short.



Even the original peaking coils are still good, it must not have played for very long at all. Work stopped when the vertical convergence transformer went out, so I will be calling John Folsom to see if he has any of his new ones still available. Cabinet is sun baked, but otherwise in good condition. Has all the knobs. Of course, CRT is good.

Wowzers! And even a very neatly done recap. I think it was another of your lucky days.

I seem to be having a lot of those, huh? Being in the right place at the right time has a lot to do with it, just yesterday I was camping in Springfield. Bad storm came, blew the tent down!

Camping can be a pretty dangerous activity. We had a similar experience this spring, only we saw this one coming. We literally threw 3 tents in the back of my van and took off running.

You are the luckiest guy in the world! I'd be heading to the store and buying lottery tickets.

You're one of us now. Do you know if this one is already in the database?

Nick, way to go! Give me a shout if you need a newly made convergence transformer for the CT100 chassis.
