Is your focus coil just dangling off a wire going to the horizontal module?

Here's the coil data from Sam's. I'll see what I can do about a scan in the morning(I mean much later this morning), depending on how crazy it gets around here. Maybe pm me your email.

Yes and no...It was supposed to be a front panel control (under the underscan sub section), but it is missing there....Three wires near where it is supposed to be are spliced with electrical tape to a 3 lead cable that goes to the dangling focus coil. I ought to trace those wires, but some go to the underscan switch which complicates things...

I probably take it too seriously, as well. I have $135K invested in just the buildings to keep it.
There's probably others on this forum that have that much or more invested. I have met a few that have a lot more than I have invested.
Tom or Nick wouldn't have had to worry about me bidding against them. Buying a rust-bucket never appealed to me. Too disappointing! As much as I appreciate the quality of construction of S-C products, I never considered them as being stellar performers, at least, not that much better than the higher end models of Zenith or RCA.
I don't know why Nick would want it, unless he has a S-C that he's repairing.
PS, If I had a Setchell-Carlson color set, I wouldn't kick it to the curb.

Copy, I'll bid 200 next time and make you work for it.

Sorry to bring a two year old thread to the top, but it's a very interesting set.

Tom if it's still fresh in your Electronic memory , I'd be curious to know how they ran the composite video input into SC video module on that beast. I recently picked up a second SC model 2500 off Craigslist that the cabinet has seen it's better days and I'm contemplating hacking it into a color monitor. Basically all in the name of education and experimentation.

Edit added note - I realize it needs to go the grid of the 1st video amp. What I'm wondering if they added any circuitry or if the composite video connector goes directly to pin 4 on the video module/mother chassis. Pin 4 appears to be the 4th pin inward on the video sub chassis connector when viewing from the back side.

I'll have to dig it out later. There's actually 3 video inputs and a sync input. Each input has 2 Jack's that are shorted together so you can Daisy chain multiple monitors to a single source. There's an input select switch and a sync internal/external switch. That's all I can remember on the road presently.

Looks like the 3 sets of video in jacks go to the front panel input 1-2-3 select switch. And I'm pretty sure I see a fourth shielded cable coming back to the video module pin 4 (bottom side of chassis). Thanks to all your pictures I think I got it. Almost too easy.
