Only half? You must have a lot of space at your place.

I can't see our Kriesler from the 60s though! Smile

It's coming along nicely. The HMV F4 looks to be in good condition.

Yes, That's the HMV I meant, it might be an F1, they all look similar. HMV made 5 versions of the F chassis each had it's own circuit differences, some quite major. The full model name will be printed on the rear of the chassis (probably in the left corner). If it is an F4 model the code will be F4-xx where xx is the case style. I have a similar HMV without the doors which is a model F4-A3.

I notice you've updated your photo gallery. I can now confirm that your Breville 3in1 does have a Precedent TV chassis in it.

Excuse me Toby, do you have any working consoles that you would like to sell? Only small ones though as I do not have much space but I do have the room for three small console televisions and a few portables. Send me an email would you? Price I'm willing to pay is like $10 or something for a working console with valves in it

Nathan, you would be lucky to get a broken console with no chassis or tube for $10. Most consoles I see go for upwards of $50, and are usually untested (and so would require some restoration to the circuit to restore proper functions).

You might be able to get some of the cheaper quality laminated woodgrain consoles from the 1970s pretty cheaply though, but those aren't usually much to 'write home about', so to speak.

As for 1950's-60's consoles,I think they usually go for several hundred dollars?

Chris

Mum and I are getting a console from a re-use center, so it might be late 50s early 60s, the lady said it was a 60s so I am not sure
