Thanks for the input Dave,
I'm hoping that the crt will get better. I had the bias switch set in mid position for the pictures.

The introduction of the bonded face plate was a quantum leap forward for those in the industry. There was nothing more frustrating than installing a new tube and seeing dirt between the face plate and CRT.
Been there, done that.

EdKozk2,
How much did you pay? I'm just wondering what the market is today for buying a used CTC-16.

Tv collector,
Your right, the first time I tried the link , ebay sent me to a bunch of ads. The top of the ad page said, " 0 results ". I tried the link latter and it worked correctly.

I finally got back to this set this week. Degaussing the crt made a world of difference. All three colors are purer.
I wanted to check the horizontal output cathode current. Is there a jumper link to disconnect the cathode from ground ? I'm hoping for an easy way to get a current reading .

Unless someone added a cathode fuse above chassis (something I recommend) the only easy way to do it is a test socket with a provision to insert a meter in series with the cathode or measuring the plate current (which Involves dangerous voltages).
