It looks a very nice set, and you have got an excellent picture on it now!

It's nice when you finally fill a hole in your collection that's been waiting for ages.

Regards,

Lloyd.

Excellent result Gary , nice to see the set working , I only ever remember seeing one of these in my time as an engineer & never got a chance to repair it as it was scrapped due to a CRT failure

Hi Mark , thanks for your compliment this set did run perfectly over the three days for over 30 hrs in total . It's probably more reliable now than it was when new .

Regards

Gary.

Is the CRT improving with use, the picture looks even better than the earlier one?

Hi Frank, the crt is really good even from when I first got it working the grayscale and convergence have never been touched so my thinking is that it must have been pensioned off early in it's life . The chap I obtained it from had stored it for twenty years .

Regards

Gary

Nice to know that one of these sets has survived, and will soon be working.

I never liked sets with touch tuning, always seemed to give problems.

Yes touch tuning no doubt could be a pain but it kept us in a job. I think it was a Bush CTV, the plastic 'tubing' surrounding the CRT on the cabinet front had a very small gap where the ends met at the bottom of the screen. Static jumped the gap and the TV changed channel.

Official cure, piece of insulation tape inside the cabinet placed across the gap.
