Restoring an RCA CTC-10 "Wynnwood".

Scanning Craigslist this morning during break and spotted this RCA listed at $70.
I decided to take off early and go look at it before a Fishtanker found it.

Sadly the CRT has been necked, it was a 21CYP too I think based on the Orange stripe on the neck, I have a rebuilt Channel Master FJP I can put in it though.

It's complete except of one small knob, the CRT cup (probably broken when the CRT got necked) and a couple small pieces of brass trim on the legs.

The cabinet is a little rough but the good thing is it's black lacquer so touching it up is much easier than trying to match a particular shade of stain, also wood putty won't show through black paint.

After finding the tube necked and the cabinet being a bit rough I was considering leaving it, until I realized it was a remote set, I figured that made it worth the extra effort to restore. I also have two CTC10 chassis here for parts so getting it running won't be a problem.
I made an offer of $40 and he accepted it so now it's sitting in my van!

Here's the promo sheet from Ed Reitan's site.

If I owned this I'd be thinking "Steve Wynnewood" every time I glanced at it.

"Wireless Wizard"... I love it! Well worth $70 even sans CRT.

Security sealed circuits?

Looks sun baked, but not as bad as my CT-100 was!

So if that 21cyp22 that had the neck broke off was to have enough of the neck left as if it were going through a rebuilding process, could that tube be used for a rebuild test if it were for now sealed, and vacuumed to prevent any further damage from the air...?

After all, there will need to be some "test tubes" getting the rebuild process down right.... right....?

I think Technicolor has a tube cut off about the same point as this one.... 2 test tubes...?

Yah, they may not work bla bla bla but you gunna try a new process on a something you can't replace......?

Trouble with necked tubes is you don't know if it was under vacuum when it happened, if it was the air rushing in can literally blow the phosphor off the face of the tube and ruin it. No way to really tell without rebuilding it either, it's a real crap shoot. In short: there are better candidates out there with bad guns still under vacuum, better to try those first.

This CRT got necked hard too, no doubt sucked in glass debris against the shadow mask.

Still a very NICE score, even with a terribly "necked" tube, really like the black lacquer cabinet style too, a plus that it's a remote set! Did you get the remote transmitter with the set? Do keep us informed of your progress on this set!

Hi Charles, I would love to get the knob for it, I want to get all the little bits and pieces so when I start to work on it I'll have everything.

Here's a picture of it, one of the four small knobs on the bottom and it's solid metal and brass colored.

Thanks!

I bet I either have that one, or I have a set of 4 matched similar. I don't know why, but RCA had many variations of those aux knobs; maybe due to different cabinet styles? About a year ago, I found a box of (mainly) RCA color knobs which I had put aside years ago, so I'll go check what I have. If you don't get a PM from me in the next day or so, please remind me . I also have that remote, but it's beat-up. Not anxious to get rid of the remote, but would part with it if you don't have one at all.

Charles

Thanks Charles, I don't want to take your remote though.
There's on on eBay now for an outrageous price and there were a couple sold recently for much less so one will turn up eventually.

My CTC-10C set was necked when I got it in late 1974. It used the CYP22. Found a FBP22 tube in a junk carcass. I didn't have any way to test the tube, or any of the tubes in the chassis, for that matter.... I was around 18...

I was rewarded with a good color picture from this unknown CRT. The tube lived until 1984, when I bought a brand new FBP tube from an Atlanta dealer that found it in their warehouse... they thought it was a returned dud, until I opened the box.

I'm so glad I fixed that set. It has been a reliable performer with most of its original capacitors all these years.
