Hello all,
I have a Philips 663A which is in very good condition. I plan to start its renovation in a few months. What I will say will not be very helpful, but it is an "armored" TV set. Once he traveled a long way to me in the side position and nothing was damaged, all the tubes remained in place, even the picture tube :). I keep my fingers crossed for the success of the current project.

The 663A rebuild is now nearing completion after nearly 6 months.

She is now working beautifully and over the last week I have restored the scratched and battered cabinet.

I have stripped and repolished the top, let some new veneer into the front lower corners and retouched a lot of the damaged areas before a long polishing session.

Over the next few days the pair of chassis and crt will be reinstated!

Great job done!:clap:
I would like to learn from you how you made this cabinet work....
We have here in these forums a good technical support, but the
bigger problem is the cabinet work.:shrug:

If you give these kind of jobs to a "woodworm", you are going to pay awful lot of money.:wall:
They promise you everything :blah: but sometimes the result
is between worse and lousy.:angry:

Regards,
German Dalek
