Westinghouse K840CK15 Restoration

New project.

The set was described as having an “excellent” 15GP22 CRT with a complete, but unknown chassis condition. Three photos of the flyback area look clean. The set is on its way to us for restoration.



Read about the restoration here: https://visions4netjournal.com/westinghouse/

We will update along the way. Hope all go’s well.

Update, July 11, 2018

After a long delay, the Westinghouse H840CK15 is finally on its way to Mike in Arizona. Here you see the set crated. The only way to go when shipping 2000 miles.

The jug was kept in the cabinet. You might understand the crating and shipping cost if the jug were shipped separately. We had four other consoles crated this way with no mishap. It has five layers of protection and emobilised so the set can’t move inside the crate.

We made sure the chassis and CRT were secured properly. There is a cut out surrounded by foam for the neck. Then a piece of foam was added to fill the opening of the cut out. This allows the neck to be flush with the main cabinet instead of protruding. Also shrink wrap, fiber paper, popcorn to fill into the gaps, another layer of foam, then cardboard and lastly the plywood, banded, two hooks to secure in transit and a pallet. The set is suspended on foam to help absorb road shocks.

There is always a first time for a mishap, but we took the extra precaution of reducing the truck stop/exchanges during transit.

Marshall,

Congratulations. Looking forward to your restoration of the Westinghouse K840CK15. As with your previous restorations, a wonderful detailed account, I'm sure will be provided. Wishing your new addition a safe journey to Arizona.

Best,
