I got this set several years ago from John Folsom via ebay. He paid 10.00 for it, and, due to the cabinet, decided it was too big a project for him. So, I bought it from him for 25,00. Still a good deal... Delivery was free.. I couldn't lose.....
The bad news is the following:
Most of the outside is very alligatored, and, outside of doors has a lot of finish fallen off. Top will need a veneer patch. There is rust, but, not horrible. TV power suppy fired up on a variac, but, tv was dead. AM RADIO played. Record changer is rusty, but, runs. Cartridge is trashed.
The good news is it's rebuildable....
Picture tube is somewhat weak, but, should show a watchable picture...
I won't be doing this set for sometime, but, today, my friendly cleaning friend helped moving things around, and, Dumont is now where I can get to it, right in plain sight......
I look forward to the day I will be seeing this rare 1947 beauty playing again.......

This set has it's original owner's manual, schematic, and, sales brochure.

Someone must've made quite an investment on such a unit in 1947. A leap of faith considering the amount of programming available at the time.

Sounds like an interesting project. I'll follow if you'll lead. Very Happy

Thanks. I'll make an announcement when I'm ready to begin. Won't be awhile, though. I have other projects to finnish, such as my family tv.
Right now, I have three strikes agin me, including a severe sinus infection. Oh, boy........... Sad
