Default Re: Television in the Home

Yes, these sets are now over sixty years old and generally give a good account of themselves. My entry into their fan club was because my Gran had one in the 1960s, and I dropped it down the stairs, breaking the cabinet and shattering the tube. She made me repair it! This involved getting a Lawson 'regunned' tube, which proved perfectly fine.

All these years later, the cabinet finish can suffer from severe crazing. This is a very hard finish, probably plastic or 'urethane', and is very hard to get off for restoration.

My example, owned today, is the result of combining the best bits of two such sets, independently sourced.
