Not very hopeful here but I guess if you don't ask, you don't get!

I just picked up a VERY original AWA C209.

UN fortunately, being a 21 inch, it has its original AWV CRT, the 17s had imported RCA CRTs because AWV were flat out making 21s.
We replaced lots of AWV CRTs in the 60s. As well as going dim they'd defocus badly.

CRT tests very sad. Only 22mV on my tester after 20 minutes I know from back-in-the-day experience it won't respond to a cathode tickle.

SO
===

Anyone got a reasonable 21" 90 degree big bottle stashed away in the shed that they could be persuaded to part with for a mutually satisfactory consideration?

Hi Ian.
It looks as though you will have to get into a bidding war on Ebay.

I wish you luck.

Wayne.

I can get a NOS tube from the ETF in Ohio not expensive they have lots of them, but freight is over US$300. I might investigate a container consolidation.

Now if there were several people in Oz that wanted one it would work out cheaper.

If it fits an STC T-212 (based on specs it looks as though it would) I'd be potentially interested in one.

Why? Yours looks great!

Unless you've got another set

It shows weak on CRT tester, and when you turn up the brightness it doesn't look so healthy. Also, to get it to that point I 'rejuvanated' it.

Can't hurt to have a spare. Smile

Ah, yes, rejuvenation normally doesn't last long.

I reckon if we can get enough people together to buy a few tubes it starts being economical to put them in a container.

Might take 6 months but not so expensive.

Anyone else? These are NOS tubes, unused. They have other tubes as well, including colour.

I'd also get a spare for my Kriesler model 121-73, chassis 79-10A.

Well actually I might be able to help you there. I have a parts chassis with an equivalent 23" Anodeon non-bonded CRT that tests fairly good. How bad is yours?

But keep the wishlist coming guys!
I might be able to line up a container load!

Mine's pretty good. But while I can afford to buy spares, thought I'd get one for each set that I have.
