Ooh, la-la! That's just about my favorite 7-inch cabinet. I still kick myself for not buying a cheap one at the ETF convention years ago (although shipping home from there would have cost about what it was worth.)

I think I see what the seller means by modifying/repairing the power supply. In the third photo, upper right, is a board holding several big modern power resistors, presumably a replacement for the old ballast. I built one like that ages ago for a Motorola VT-73. Since then, people have devised more compact solutions, but I figure the TV works the same either way.

Regards,

All the hard work has been done on it. A couple knobs look wrong and the cabinet needs a little "Old English" for now. It works reasonably well, so no one will get hurt. The seller is just breaking even on it.
I, personally prefer the cap-reactance heater dropper method. It's a little easier on the tube heater warm-up.

I've got one. Tim sold it to me for a bargain. It almost fills the mask, but is fine otherwise. Eventually, it will hit the bench.

The center knobs should be the RCA type as on the outside knobs. No shortage of these around. Price seems a bit high. But, perhaps, a little negotiation and local pick up will save a few bucks.

When I first sought out the early post-war 7 inchers those were so common here in the NY area that I always passed on them thinking I could get one easily anytime. These days I rarely see one and wish I had gotten one when I could. That one has lots of potential and the back is a very simple one to fabricate. A really sharp "Mini RCA 630", and priced at about half it's worth.
