Hi All

I'm currently getting quotes for LCL sea freight (Less than Container Load) from US to Australia to see if it's worthwhile to bring some CRTs in.

The more we bring, the cheaper it is for each CRT.

So, here's the link to what they currently have over there in Hilliard, Ohio:

Ian what would be a replacement CRT for my Kriesler? It’s the 79-10a chassis.
I know my TV doesn’t need it but if they have a compatible crt...

I'll get them to cost it when I send the list.

There is a range of suitable CRTs for that model. Original is a Philips AW59-90 or -91. I have a 23MP4-J that's the same thing.

You can go through the list and check the numbers on Franks tube pages. the CRT datasheets have bulb dimensions etc.

Anyway, what you need is a 23 inch 110 degree unbonded. Later 23 inch tubes had bonded faceplates and others had integral mounting brackets etc.

Something to put to Steve!

Well it seems the going rate from ETF is about AU$120 for a new CRT and AU$80 for a used but good one, at today's exchange rate.
That's FOB mid-west USA.

I'm still waiting on a shipping quote. Assuming $300 to ship 6 CRTs as a part-container load that adds $50 per tube.

How does that sound?

That's a pretty good price Ian , Taking into account that new crt tube is not a option to buy here and taking the gamble on a secondhand set for parts would be 100 to 300 on ebay and its a gamble

I'd love to have a set that needed one as I definitely would be on board but at present I don't have any resto candidates.

I have an HMV M1 console that needs a CRT if you are interested in that. It's taking up space here.

Well for that much I’d definitely buy a crt for the Kriesler! Is there a specific model number crt you’d recommend Ian?
I’m not really accustomed to CRT model numbers
I did check and mine and it has the original AW59-91 in it

OK guys things are firming up.

Steve at ETF has expressed willingness to ship the CRTs to the freight forwarder's depot in Columbus OH and given me more accurate carton size and weight.

Shipping cost for 6 CRTs is AU$489.42. That is shipped to the FF's depot in Eastern Creek (western Sydney). Works out a bit cheaper per each if there's more CRTs wanted, which from what I've heard so far, there will be. Shipping time is approx 45 days.

The Freight Forwarder can arrange ongoing shipping for individual tubes (at extra cost of course) or if it works for you, you can pick up yourself.

So, from this point, anyone who's interested please email me - address is unhidden.

Last chance for the bottle department!

We are up to 38 CRTs and the freight is getting cheaper per CRT all the time. The final order will be placed very soon.

Today is the 21st of June BTW!

Hello Ian.

Although I am trying to stay away from B&W TV's, I still am compelled to bid on some.
Unfortunately, whenever I do, the bids on that particular TV go ridiculously high making the project a non-starter.
I feel that these sets are either being bought by speculators, or trendies wanting period TV's to turn into fish tanks.

Anyway, that is why I am not placing any orders at this time.
If I were, the most common tube that I used to regularly replace was the 21ALP4.

Best wishes to all members.

Wayne.
