Hopefully, the CRT has some life in it, as it was replaced at one time with an RCA replacement.
The cabinet is a Masonite table model and a little rough.
Hope your crt is still usable. Dave if you do decide to recap the set, I found it easier to remove each circuit board. That way you don't have to reach over the whole chassis. Maybe you can start a thread on your progress. Do you know the chassis number of your find ?

Dave, if your CTC5 has a good 21AXP22 in it I'd be interested in trading you a good 21FBP22 and a wad of cash...

I probably wont get to it until the middle of the week.
I'm interested to see if the jug is good. I don't remember seeing that light of a screen color. I always remember the screen color a darker green. Naturally, it has a safety glass.
More info later!

The dud 21AXp22a I removed from my CTC5 had a much lighter screen, almost white color also. It was a Sylvania.

The set is a CTC5A, built in the 3rd quarter of 1956.
I was mistaken about the CRT, it's original! It seems to check out very good.
PM me on this website and include a phone # where you can be reached and the best time to call.
