Philco Safari

A Safari I bought off the 'bay arrived today. Its in great cosmetic
condition. Since the seller showed a raster, I turned it on.

It works perfectly, with minor issues.

Issue 1) Some controls need DeOxit or contact cleaner.

Issue 2) The correct brightness setting is all the way down.
Presumably this is a slightly off resistor in the 280V divider chain.

For restorers or owners of these, are there pitfalls to servicing?

Any any specific caps that need replacing for safety?
