John,
Try a DVD player, Y signal only, with an "I Love Lucy" DVD. Sometimes the content had to be sourced from an analog source, digitized, and then released. The resultant digital file has chroma artifacts in the luma still (no comb filter is perfect). The ILL DVDs were sourced from the 35mm negatives in B/W. No chroma dots.

I would check the routing of the wires to the CRT, it looks like the type of interference you can get when the HV cage is missing.
I'm guessing this set has an extra long harness to the CRT due to the remote location?

I delved in the stash and found some tubular ceramics from 40s-50s:



My RLC meter reads them as 57pF and 84pF, respectively. I wasn't sure about the voltage rating, so I gave them 500v from a bench power supply as a test. They bear it easily. If I dig deeper, I may find some 1500v micas from that era.

Not much time for work on the TV, it's been crazy busy around these parts.... I did get a chance to pickup the cabinet from the restorer though. Here's a quick photo for you guys to check out. When things calm down I'll post more.

Looks great John. You can swing the view to any part of the room you want.

Your set looks like it belongs in J.L. Hudson's circa 1947. Simply phenomenal.

I need a decent refinisher. I have the Club 20, the 621TS, a Grinell, a Plymouth, an Artone, and another rough looking set that could all use an expert's touch... and I lack the ambition to refinish even a lowly AA5.

Playing around under the hood is much more entertaining.

Nice looking cabinet! Nothing like 1946-1948 TV's. Pre-wars aside, they were the most unique.

Restoration is coming along. I still have an issue with the left tambour door not being aligned yet. It shouldn't be too terribly difficult to fix, but time to spend on TV restorations is tight. I thought I'd share the photo below. How many kids today are building TV memories in front of a 10" B&W kinescope? I'd venture a guess that Enzo is the only kid on earth watching a Swing A View in this day and age.

Now THAT is awesome to see a modern kid watching that TV! We have three grand kids, boys, under three years old. We are bringing the little buggers up right too, they watch a Predicta and listen to a Zenith TO. And vinyl. We are in the middle of restoring my wife'
s father's Christmas Village for this Christmas and adding a train to it. The boys are gonna love that!
