I don't have room for this one. It needs work (P/S caps at least) but in the brief time it was showing a raster before an electro in the PS popped the CRT looked like it is OK. It was still running after the electro spilled its guts with a bang.

It's the first generation delta gun chassis, the Aussie one, NOT that horrible UK hybrid Decca I hasten to add!

Cabinet is pristine except for a couple of small chips on the back edge of the top. It needs the correct channel and FT knobs.

Looks pretty clean inside and it still has the circuit diagram pages that came with the set.

Anyone interested? Its owner (not me) paid $50 for it but I suspect he'd not be expecting to recoup this.

For anyone who hasn't seen one of these, they are a joy to work on, service access is exemplary.

I'll send Brad a pic.

I'm crazy. I'll take it.
