Hi all,
Thats the only number I have been given. Looks like a Precedent. About 63 to 65 TV.
Does anybody recognise this number TN 9530

Thanks pete

Hi Pete
I have all the schematics at home on the laptop. But that number doesn't look familiar.
What I normally do is match up the valve lineup and power supply type etc.
Do you have the TV?

Hello Ian,
Hope you guys are having a great time . All good here.

No I dont have the tellie ,Its one I'm interested in . Its a console, 3 in one pop through CRT and I thought it would have a 263 chassis, so I phoned the owner and he got back to me with that number.
I looked through my resources and found nothing with that number.
No dramas though, you know me always looking for tellies. The more the merrier.

All the best pete

Hi Pete,

I saw that TV on eBay. It is a Consol Series 70, made between 1967 & 1970.

The company who made them was called E.A.S. Manufacturers of 117 Parramatta Rd, Auburn. I don't think they have anything to do with Precedent.

I'd never seen or heard of the Consol brand until fairly recently. I saw a wooden Consol portable a couple of months ago at the Mitchell Rd Antiques in Alexandria. They may not have been sold in Victoria.

Hi Monochrome.
The Precedent was badge console and sometimes ive seen the early models badge Precedent Consol or just Consol.
I note the badging is of the same design and the grille cloth.
So I have no idea what games they were playing .
It's all guess work really.
Anyway I will let that one go because it does not have the chassis in it that I'm interested in .

Plus it has what we call old lady legs in the furniture industry, ,, not a good look in a retro house.

Pete

'Console' was a house brand for Joyce Mayne or whatever their predecessor was called. EAS is right I think.

TV is a KGH design - I think EAS took them over. It could be a 1.03 to 1.07 chassis depending on exact age. Basically similar with upgrades. From memory the later chassis used decal valves, 6U9, 6X9, 6Y9.

The KGH (Titan) is a simple design, Philips components, flip-down chassis is easy to work on. Can work quite well when everything is fixed but these sets, being at the very low end of the market, were often badly serviced.

Here is a 1969 advertisement for Consol. The TV depicted is the Series 70, without the old lady legs - probably the style Vintage Pete is more interested in!

The Series 70 came in either a 23" or 25" screen, with 5-valve BC stereo & record changer. They weren't cheap either. $894 for the 25" version in 1969.

Image pending.

I can't remember Joyce Mayne replacing anyone in particular, but I sure as hell was glad to see the end of her ads and those of John Cootes, and Norman Ross, too (even though Gerry Harvey continues the tradition of aurally annoying ads)

Joyce used to do TV ads for the store and became so well known they named the store after her.

QUOTE: Born in London, Mayne started out as an actress (and who’s surprised, given those ads) and a tap dancer. She arrived in Sydney in 1956, and the very next day got a job selling TVs at a shop in Penrith. A background in demoing gas and electrical appliances back in England, not to mention being the first woman to pass her all-male management course, didn’t hurt. When the shop owner’s wife learned that *gasp* a woman was selling TVs, she demanded Joyce be fired and replaced by a respectable gentleman. Unperturbed, Mayne went on to a job managing an electrical goods store in the same area, and in 1973 opened three of her own outlets.

"in the same area" suggests Penrith.

QUOTE: John Thorpe was former boss of appliance company Joyce Mayne before he sold it to Harvey Norman in 1998 for $45 million.

It would actually make an interesting book, about all the old bussiness that were booming during the 50s 60s 70s.
The list is huge of all the success stories. We had some very interesting shops over the years with some real characters running them.
All gone now though.
Mall culture has taken over

Pete
