The above has been on display as found for many years in my Radio Room. This model is one of the few 7" sets of the late 1940s that did not mask off the CRT, leaving it the fill size "Port-Hole" viewing shape.

I recently pulled it to my workbench and gave it a complete electronic restoration. The restoration included replacing all the tubular and electrolytic capacitors along with a few resistors and some of the tubes.

Features a faux Alligator skin covered wood cabinet in original condition. Has a brass metal front finish with some minor blems.

Typical electro-static deflection with RF high voltage supply which is common with most post war, 7" televisions and delivers nice bright picture. The off air picture was produced from a DVD player fed into an RF amplifier then the locally broadcast signal was pickled up with "rabbit ears" antenna connected to the TV's antenna terminals.

Radiolaguy's collection, the television is not for sale.
