For you TV guys, not sure what these are worth. Just thought I'd pass it on, and no I do not know the seller

I have that set and it is cute and a good player.

Almost tempting to buy it to get the magnifier.

Even without the magnifier, there's a much bigger picture here...... Shocked .... He also has some test equipment and radios too. I see a Bakelite set, a Silvertone (?Truetone?) wooden cabinet (I believe that one has a tuning eye) and a fairly modern scope.... Get a foot in the door by going to see the TV - you may get a deal on some nice radios and test equipment instead!!! What a Face ......

Mine is missing the plug in antenna. Looks like his is also......

I see he has some sort of nice looking radio on the floor in one of those pics as well.

Looks like a model 610.

That's a reasonable price for an unabused original with magnifier. Let's hope the picture tube is good; there are still lots of 7-inch CRTs around, but that doesn't mean a replacement would be cheap.

Most CRT testers won't handle a 7JP4, but you can at least use an ohmmeter to test for continuity between the filament pins (14 and 1). Infinite resistance means it's dead. A few ohms means that the filament is intact; of course, it still might be too worn out to give a decent picture. Don't bust the cap off the CRT neck when you remove the connector.

You'll need to replace all of the electrolytic and paper capacitors (and then fix whatever non-aging problems it might have). If you browse the TV articles at the following link, you'll get an idea what's typically needed to get a 1940s TV working. I suppose the Emerson would be roughly comparable in difficulty to the National TV-7W.

To have shown at least a little interest in the TV and then go to see it may have been a better approach. Perhaps you and the guy would have hit it off - talked a little radio - shared a couple of brews - and then you might have had a better chance.... and possibly made a new friend... Very Happy

yeh, the old saying "nothing ventured, nothing gained" He lives about an hour from here and I really didn't want to make the trip since I don't do TV's. Since he has my email maybe he will let me know if he changes his mind

I've got a mint Emerson 639 TV that looks just like the one on Craigs list.
Restored it to playing condition earlier this year.
Plays really nice.
My restoration thread is on the old AntiqueRadio.com forums under Antique Televisions.

The Emerson TV is kinda tight for the recapping process but nevertheless it was a fun project.

Its an Electrostatic Deflection television.

Makes a great little TV.
