Greetings from New Jersey, Such as it is

Always good to start off with a joke😀

My name is Joe. I'm 27 and I live in NJ. I've got some good friends on here who I've known for years in Dave Sica, Matt Reynolds and John Tyminski. I have been collecting antiquated electronics of all sorts since I had own car and my parents could no longer control what I brought home. I like to work on old radios and get them working. I buy, restore and resell pinball machines as both a hobby and a side gig. I also fixed up a 1960s GE tabletop black and white tv set at one point. I have a 1958 GE Concierge Console project that I would be interested in finding a new home for. What I am really looking for now is an early 60s RCA floor model round tube color set that I can get up and running, to go with my Fisher Contemporary II HiFi.
I have a lead on a free RCA CTC-16 in good shape other than that it has been necked. Is it difficult to find a 21fjp22?

I would get that ctc-16 if I were you. Good for parts if nothing else, and you can't beat free.

Hi, Joe. Do you own the Mata Hari machine in your picture? That was a great pinball machine.

Ahh, Jackson. I used to live 20 minutes from there. Now I'm a bit further south in Burlington. I'm 26 and born and raised in Mercer County!

It looks like you have the passion AND time/skill for your projects. I just have the passion. Cool to know there's other VKers in NJ, and so close to my old hometown!

Welcome aboard! I sold my Gorgar and Williams Firepower to Levi Nayman out your way, back when I was into pins......
