Well found. They certainly have some unique capabilities. I have just emailed the company from the UK.

Note the copyright 2005 on the pages. Makes me wonder if this place is still in existence.

They are. I've received an initial and reasonably positive reply to my enquiry.

I've had a positive response from the company and am now seeking somebody to volunteer a pre-war EMI CRT for rebuilding. Other early Pyrex CRTs might also be relevant - I don't know what types were then used in the USA.

Cost would be $1000 + shipping both ways. Work would be done as a best effort. Obviously success cannot be gauranteed.

Because of the risk it would be best if a totally dead CRT was used.

Yes, we have a volunteer. I will let them post their identity if they wish.

Very interesting company. [edit] I just read the company profile. Figured they had to have been somehow associated with the old Tektronix.

Not exactly sure who to contact, but I have a 12LP4 which I'm willing to donate if you're still looking.
