Post by Bill Cahill on Tue Oct 15, 2013 5:28 pm

"m a Baaaaaaaaaaaaaad boy!", and, I'm happy........
Coming from NY, straight to me on first week of November.

One Admiral 1950 12" combination tv, radio, and, phonograph in a Chinese painted cabinet.
Cabimet has been proffessionally refinnished, and, designs painstakingly put back on.
Full doors in front. about five feet wide.

Second one.......
Bendix very rare combination with push button tunning.
1947  Ten inch tv, radio, and, phonograph.
I'll try to get pics of them from Our friend, Karmakiri.
He has them. He needs the room, and, I need the toyz....
So far, all I know is to expect delivery on first weeek of November.
Boy, I'd better hurry, and, make room.....
"I'm so excited!"

Good looking set! I'll bet it made someone the talk of the town when it was first delivered.

Bill, your a better man than me. I gave up on TV repair back in the early 60s after working on a production line to fix the ones that didn't work. Warwick electronics in Southern California. Best to you. Nice looking combo set.

Thanks. I was hoping to show pics of Admiral as well, but, he had already deleted them. Oh, well. In a little more than a month, I'll have them both.
Shipper asked me how manny sets I own. I told him 45. His reply was "I would keep calling it insanity.".

I've got a question. Does that Admiral really look like a 12" to you? Tim says it is, but, it really looks like 10" to me.....

I would use the turntable for scale and estimate it to be ten inches. If that is the case, I would guess the screen is twelve inches.

The Admiral that I have is a couple years newer than yours.  It is going to a friend in Texas. It is packed in the trailer, and I can't remember the model number.  I would guess it is a couple years newer than yours.  It has a rectangular screen.  I paid $30 for it, to save it from the dump.  I want an RCA or a Magnavox with a good cabinet.  I look forward to following the progress on yours.

Today I started working in earnest to get ready for arrival of tv's. I have been cleanning, music room, and, moving things around, and, in better order.. Soon I will be moving my small upright Victor Orthophonic victrola into the music roof for display. Move a few more things against that wall, and, I'll have room for the Admiral. Then, I'll do more moving, etc., to make room for the Bendix tv. Things are slowly coming along. I'll be ready when they arrive. I'm really looking forward to receiving them.

Oh. On the tube. Tim found a factory stanmping on the chassis that reads "This chassis was wired only to use 12JP4 picture tube."
And, the schematic shows that two models used that tube. Mine, of course, is one of them....
Very interesting.  OH, that's on the Admiral, of course..........

.......and be sure we get "blow to blow" commentary and maybe even pictures. A tv is on my bucket list to do, so my interest is piqued. Good luck with your new toys, Bill.

Your pictures aren't labeled so it's hard for me to know what I'm looking at.  I could pretty much guess the Admiral with the oriental cabinet:



Not sure about the Bendix or what this picture is coming from:

It's a good thing that set's cabinet wasn't repurposed into some regrettable piece of make do cabinetry.

NO. The picture of the Chinese cabinet is the ADmiral I'm getting. The other one is an older one of my Bakelielite console Adrmiral while it was still playing on the bench.
How did you get the pictures? I can't get it to work from photobucket.
