The factory of origin is Philips Netherlands, as is most common. There was a small possibility that sets like this were also made in other Philips factories (amongst others, Philips Sweden, Denmark, Germany produced various measuring instruments as well), hence my question. I don't think this variant is particularly rare, but a TV collector of 1950's sets might be happy with it as it looks in quite a good condition.

When I build something out of existing equipment, I mostly use incomplete or not really worthwhile to repair equipment. I'm not sure what to advise in this case, really. On the one hand, if you don't have local TV collectors or find someone who will take it via ebay, it isn't worth that much for you to keep it as is. On the other hand, someone might turn up the day after you repurposed it who would have gladly taken it.
