What about this tv?

Post by Dr. Radio on Sun Aug 21, 2016 1:13 pm

Still would like to find a tv appropriate for my 1950s kitchen. This actually has the right color scheme.

Seems to high $ for my wallet, BUT I need to know if these models are disasters/money pits to work on/restore.

It's kinda a watered-down version of the more popular Zenith "bug eye" tv with the knobs on the extreme outsides, but how is this unit?

It is a line operated set. It will be interesting to rebuild the set around the circuit boads. The selenium rectifiers will have to be replaced. You will need to add an unknown resistance at the rectifiers to the first filter to bring it back to factory specs. It's got half a picture, so, most of the important things are working.
I think the price is a little high, but, It looks to be in very nice shape, so, it may not be such a bad price for it.

Bill,

The price was a bit steep and I waited....and somebody beat me to it.

Oh well. I'll keep looking!
