FS: Admiral 30A1, parts or whole

Just picked up this set through a friend. It's got a perfect 10BP4, which is why I wanted it....the rest I don't need. Cabinet is solid, but veneer is flaky in spots and the finish is shot.

If you want the whole thing minus the picture tube, you can have it for free....I'll even give you a dud 10BP4 if you want to display it.

If you want parts, I'll gladly part it out cheaply and send you what you need. First come first serve

I could use the knobs if you want to sell them.

if no body pops up wanting it I would be interested in the big trans on the bottom. Long story here...

I have one but I think its a bit older has two octal plugs for the power supply.

Well anyway I found it had been hacked and the small power trans on the power supply I got from Bob Anderson from a donor chassis of his. after I got into it I realized that not only had the small trans been hacked but so had the larger one. Now it works but its clearly not the right trans, lots of taped of wires and not sure about the B+ being right, I think it came from a RCA set of the same era, but had more windings. It was a real mess.

So if nobody pops up for it at some point, I would be interested in that lower chassis or just the big trans. Maybe Bob may want the whole shootin match as he has a LOT of those chassis and prob should have a few spares just in case. I can be the last resort since I have it working now, but would like to someday get that chassis "right".

Go for it. I already have several spare 30A1/30B1 chassis already so I'm well stocked with spares

Gonna hold off on parting this out for the time being. My 11 year old son Nick looked at the set and said "I have a better idea Dad, I think I want to try fixing it. Can you help me?"

Why sure!

He's no novice to a soldering iron....he started out with some old breadboards and some junk components a couple years ago just fiddling around, then graduated to a couple simple kits. He actually helped me do some caps in a color set recently....so why not? I think he's ready

Here's a couple caps he did last night. The kid's got skills, I tell ya!

Nice work! I look forward to when he starts posting his own restoration items here on VK.

That's great, I know you'll encourage him as much as you can! I started my first soldering around 10 years old, and his work sure looks better than mine did, when I was his age! :-)
