Welcome buyers! This sale is for a Tele-Tone Model TV-149 7-inch antique vacuum tube tv, not working. It is I would say in good overall as found original condition. The set is complete with the exceptions being the back/back screws/wall cord and all the tubes are missing. The 7JP4 picture tube tests very strong on a Beltron crt tester, up around 90ma, new crt territory. (on the Beltron, the “short light” on indicates no short, if it goes out, then there is a short.) The "Green" dial is the black and white tube test circuit on the Beltron. The emission rises quickly and steadily to full emission in about 5 seconds after heater is warmed up when voltage is applied, and takes about 9 seconds before it starts to fall upon the interrupt test. A replacement back can easily be made from fiber board, masonite or and old solid state tv or projection tv back, and a “cheater” electrical cord can be used. The cabinet has a crack in the top heat vent wood surface, probably from the heat of operation. It also has the usual scratches, nicks and paint drops from many years of household storage. The chassis is in very good condition with only very small spots of surface rust. The chassis mounting screw brackets where originally mounted with brass rivets which where all broken, so these where secured with aluminum rivets. There is no tube chart, It is either lost or maybe was on the back. The tube types are printed by each tube socket position on the chassis, except on the tuner. This info could be found in the Sams, #56-22 according to my 1976 index. Two flyback box cover screws are not original. One chassis to cabinet bottom mounting screw is missing. One flyback box screw hole is stripped, and could probably use an oversize screw. The set would need a complete electronic restoration, all the filter and paper capacitors replaced for any kind of operation and use.My Preferred shipper is Fedex, since does not include a shipping calculator for Fedex, the one for UPS is provided.****I have to decided to divest my Antique and Vintage electronics collection at this time. This includes all radios, TV’s, test equipment, parts, and some unrelated odds and ends. STAY TUNED for many more interesting items to come… Unless I wind up with a full time job again that takes over

As a general rule, to protect myself from things being returned for any and every arbitrary reason, I do not accept returns, and items are generally as-is. This can be negotiated if there is a good reason, for instance if an item is radically different than described in the listing, but not for reasons such as you win an item, and then later decide you don't want the item. I am willing to work with the buyer on any legitimate problem items.Low Starting offers. My philosophy on most sales, is unless it’s a very expensive and valuable item, is to list it for a buck, and let ‘er rip, letting the free market do it’s thing.
