Yeah, that's the one...a simple search turned up an image....I still know exactly what it looked like....as it was in the household for so very long. Note the "handle" on the top...it "telescopes" out with two industrial looking SS? rods....for your weight-lifting pleasure. Another 'era' appliance she has (Among others) is a circa 1966 Sony TC-200 "tapecorder"........a play on the word 'taperecorder'....also hybrid tube powered W/built-in detachable speakers......I can still recall how the Christmas music tapes sounded. The tube 'warm-up' still appeals to me...That's why I'm building my 12B4 PSE amp.....It's that connection some have to our past.........In our room 'addition' where I'm typing right now, I'd love to have that old set.....set-up in the corner...over there.
But I'd have to bring down the cabling that's going to my sons room & fanagle it down here....for "cable'..........no tweaking of Rabbit-ears anymore.

I know for sure the Sony is pre-68 as my folks recorded the Apollo 8 Christmas "address" of 68...they got it a little before that.......she still has tapes of my giggling while being recorded....that would put me at about Nine years old then.
She still has the Sony for sure, last I saw it was in 84 when I was in school....I opened it up briefly to discover..Tubes!
It had the typical dried out cap hum....
The GE set was about the same time 66-68.

Heres my latest find: 1976 Toshiba Blackstripe 13" Color TV

Managed to grab this FREE 1976 Toshiba Blackstripe 13" Color TV off someone getting rid of it on craigslist.
I called 2 times, no answer. Called a 3rd time and got a hold of the person.
They said they were going to throw it away for recycling or give it to Goodwill,
but then listed it on craigslist to see if someone wanted it.
Anyways, I went to go see it and to my amazement, the thing is near mint !
It looks like it was hardly used ! The picture on it is still great too !
Here's a few pics

Picked up this vintage 1983 Magnasonic model MBT 200 B&W TV at an estate sale today for a measily $2. Works and looks like new. Not even 1 scratch on cabinet !
Doesnt seem like it was used much. It is a very clean set.
Made in Korea.
The cabinet has a yellow tinge to it with marbleized swirls in it.
Is that bakelite ?
I cant find any info on it. Is it a 10" screen size ?

Picked up this Panasonic TR-201C B&W TV at an estate sale today.
Works perfect and the case is in near mint condition too.
Afrer a quick polish and clean, looks like new !
It's made in Korea.
I'm surprised back then Panasonic made TV's in Korea.
I guess to save cost, the black and whites were made there ?

Picked this Rare Sharp 2U-121C B&W Vacuum Tube TV up for free, untested. Gave it a cleaning, polishing. It is in real nice condition, no cracks or faults on the case. I believe this was made in late 1960's to early 1970's ?? made in Japan.
I cant find any info on it. I peeked inside and noticed it is a tube hybrid set ?
I turned it on, and volume works but no picture, adjusted brightness and nothing. I looked inside and the tubes are on. Any ideas ?
