A am in admiration of anyone taking on a restoration of a TV in this old rusted and altered condition.
A radio in this state I would consider, its a fairly simple easy to work on item, but a TV with so many components and age related problems is a giant leap of faith.
Having worked on high vacuum devices long ago I am continually amazed that the CRTs still hold a working vacuum after 70+ years, does not helium infiltration destroy them at least in part?
I will watch with interest.
