CRT Rebuilding

Donations for the CRT Rebuilding Project

Because we have decided that rebuilding tubes at the Museum is not practical, we are no longer accepting donations for the project. We appreciate everyone who has made a donation. Our plan is to integrate the CRT rebuilding room into the museum, so that visitors can see the equipment and process that is used.

In late 2010 we received $3,340.33 via PayPal. In addition, we've received $1,150 by check. After PayPal fees of $102.72, we had a balance in the fund of $4,387.61. 46 people donated to the fund. We have received several donations over $100, including one for $500 and one for $300.

This allowed us to transport the Hawkeye equipment to Hilliard. After those expenses, we had a balance of $1551.42.

We have received a number of additional donations that have allowed us to build the room where the equipment will be installed. The room will be finished in time for the 2014 Early Television Convention.
