My first roundie

After looking for years, i finally found this 1960 CTC-10 for sale in chattanooga, tn and was the right price. Does have the original 21CYP22A and only has few replacement tubes so this set is somewhat low hour. Planning to slowly restore it to correct working order.

That's a nice looking roundie! I'm restoring a ctc-10 right now myself. Did you not grab the other roundie there while you were at it? What brand was it?

I got a question, I need to get the chassis out but i am having a hard time getting the HV wire disconnected from the tube since its under the CRT shield, what are the easiest ways to get it disconnected and hooked back up?

The HV lead disconnects at the other end. It is connected to a socket on the HV rectifier cup. Open the HV compartment and the lead just pulls out (you'll need to remove the strain relief first). I hope that makes sense.

Nice set, good luck with your restoration.

I rigged mine up so I could work on it by setting it on a box with paper in it. plenty heavy and it's just the right height so you can make tests. The only thing you'll need to do is clip a lead for the crt ground. Your set looks very close to playing.

Yes it does make a picture, but red is almost non existent.

I will be going to service Jacob's CTC-10 in the near future. Hopefully we will get the red back and get the TV set up properly.
