Thanks for posting these, they are very useful to identify some of the TV models especially the Thorn ones.

Can you post the rest of the TV pages as well?

You're Welcome . I think the best thing for me to do would be to Scan the book and put it into a file . I can than email it to anybody who is interested in it , better to do it that way then plaster the site with pages ,so next time I go down to office works I will scan the book .

Thanks Pete, PS I have a Thorn 2209j Atlas the one in the top left hand corner of that Ad

Yes! I also have an Ekco TX275 that's a runner. Complete with original user manual and battery cable!

The TX275 is mentioned elsewhere on this forum. No pic though. Here's a link to one:

http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/ekco_tx275tx_27.html

A very interesting TV. CRT is a pre-war design 9" round, non-aluminised magnetic focus. Has a vibrator for the 12v DC operation. Selenium contact rectifiers. A non-live chassis Ekco!

Hi Ian, nice ! the tx275 very advanced for 1958 model. Compact chassis and DC as well!!

I don't have any small TVs. I recently moved house from Thornleigh to Dee Why & I gave a lot of my tv's and parts away as I went from having 3 sheds to 1 garage
But I still have 17 inch 1957 Pye technico.,,,1957 21 inch Pye Technico,,, 1958 Philips,,,1964 Thorn Atlas,,,1962 .kreisler computermatic = " nightmare "" .....1958 HMV lowboy ,,,,and the 1964 Precedent I bought last week. I don't sell them. I only collect them and have done for years'

It's madness I know! But I just like old TVs!

It's a disease of old standing and after more than 30 years there still isn't an official name for it. I've had it since 1987.

Yep Brad ! I know you suffer from this as I do. So I have worked out a recovery plan for you! You can sell me a nice Astor Plymouth and I also take any 1950s TV's off your hands and in no time at all you will feel much better and be free from it all !

All jokes aside. Collecting old TV's or Radios is a positive past time. We buy worn out & neglected ones and make them work again. The only negative aspect is where to store them.

Bad news there - no tellies in my collection, though plenty of radios. A couple of years ago I got rid of about fifteen consoles that were no-namers, due to a lack of room though when I bought them I was living in a bigger place. The only consoles I have now are regarded as must-haves. 1930s Airzones and AWAs and a Raycophone, most of which have turned legs and more ornate cabinets. The Raycophone is built like a tank and weighs almost as much as one.

That's the funny thing about collecting - it's a disease but it is also therapy. Wink
