Technical information

Advertising literature

This is the first set that Electro-Technical Industries sold. Later they introduced the model 10a. Our set is incomplete. The chassis is missing many parts, but it should be relatively easy to find them and restore the set. It is unclear how the CRT mounts in the set. We are restoring this set. Here is the assembly manual. This set is very similar to ones made by students as part of courses at the Television Training Institute of Philadelphia (1943) and the Philadelphia Wireless Technical Institute (1947)
