I am after a the focus knob for my 1948 Crosley 9-407. It is probably the same knob as the other four on the set. I will have one made if need be but would prefer original. Greg, bungiewilliams at yahoo dot com dot au (1/29/15)

Looking for 3 knobs and power cord for a Motorola tv model 9VT1. Dan, 516-250-1267, coby11 at optonline dot net (1/10/15)
I need a replacement flyback for a Crosley set. Crosley's part number is B-144724 and Sams crosses to either a Stancor A-8117 or a Chicago TFB-1. There is the following number stamped on the core of the existing fly: 145629 F. (This may just be an internal factory number.) The Sams folder is: Date 12/49 SET #79 Folder #4. I'm sure there are other replacement flys that might work. The CRT is a plain vanilla 10BP4. Ralph, ralphsargent at verizon dot net (1/4/15)

I am looking for a new or good condition flyback transformer for an Admiral round screen color chassis number 24C2 built by RCA. It uses the same flyback as the RCA CTC-12. The Admiral part number is 79D107-1. It is also listed as a FLY273, or Morkers5702866707. I am also looking for a operational round screen color tv chassis such as a CTC-12, 15, 16 or clone or similar chassis. In case a fly back is not available. I will consider a complete TV set with a bad or missing CRT. I live in So. Ca. But I am willing to travel to pick up. Tim, 951-212-0060, Tmihome1101 at aol dot com (7/29/14)

There was always a pleasant scent emanating from the 1961 RCA Victor 21 inch wooden consoles. It was not lemon wax. I have always wondered if the manufacturers supplied the retailers with a special polish. Is there anyone who might know the answer to this obscure question? Thanks, Robert, robertdawson117 at gmail dot com (4/17/14)

Need all the knobs for my RCA CTC-9A chassis as shown in the picture. Thanks. Robert, riverave161 at verizon dot net (4/17/14)
