Hi All, I decided to rebuild this project from 1967 as a follow on from displaying a TV picture on my 3" CRO.

As I am still recovering from a heart attack and am on "light duty" I have had to put some other projects on hold like finishing off the TRF receiver. That is sitting therein the workshop just waiting for me to cut up timber for the cabinet and finish off. I also have some front end work to do on the Morris and have to rebuild my 77 series Victa lawnmower for next summer. Most people cant figure out why I keep that lawnmower until they find out how light it is and how well it works in cutting grass.

The guy across the road from me had a Victa and after some pressure from the family (snobs) bought a spanking new 4 stroke all doing all shiny $1000 model up market thing which looked great but after a couple of months guess what got parked at the back of the shed and guess what got re-issued as the go to model? Out with old faithful. What was wrong with the shiny one?, did not have the cutting height adjustment range, did not cut close to the edges, and weighed a ton!

Anyway, back to the 5" TV.
I'll present this in parts as I get it done and the first part is about refurbishing the chassis and frame, winding the transformers and getting the main parts back together. As usual I forge ahead full of confidence, after all what could possibly go wrong?!


Cheers, Fred.
