Philco 49-1002

Post by willy3486 on Wed Mar 27, 2013 10:45 pm

Anyone familiar with a Philco 49-1002? I might have a chance to get one. A fellow I know is going to have a yard sale and has one. If he doesn't sell it he is going to bring it to a radio meet I am going to. I am going to check out the meet for stuff I need and if I have enough left over I may buy it. I was wondering how these are to work on. Are they hard to work on, have oddball parts? Are these better ones to fix up or are these the ones that your better off to pass on? I want one restore thats not extremely hard to fix as I am rusty on tvs and never got a extremely good hang of fixing them.

I think its like this one. philco tv
A fellow is going to bring it to the Nashville meet. If he doesn't sale it before the meet, or at the meet before I can get it. I plan to look and buy other items I need first. If my cash holds out and I have enough to buy it I will get it. I was wondering about the set. Is this one decent to fix? Does it have parts that go out often that are hard to find. I would like to have just one old pre 1954 TV to fix. I would like a small one like this size or similar. I might go bigger for the right project.

looks like a 7" set. If so, the pix tube is one question.
If it's a transformer operated set, then, there are other worries. These transformers tend to fail. They have a very high voltage sixty cycle winding, and, very dangerous to handle. If you accidentally touched it, it would be fatal.

Thanks for the reply. I may pass on it due to the transformer. I still would like to find one of those small motorolas instead if it is a decent one to fix.

They're a pain, but, the Motorola's are plentiful.

Its a 10 inch set and dont let the picture fool you. This is a BIG tabletop tv. This one doesnt have the transformer Bill speaks of, so no worries there. It is loaded with bumble bee capacitors though and alot of filter caps so the recap price can be kind of expensive. The wire can be kinda brittle in these also so you have to be careful in re-routing new wire in the same way as the original or it will effect alignment and performance. Otherwise its a typical late 40's set as far as restoring.
