Not a TV guy but thought I'd make these pics and parts available for identification.

GE model 810, from about 1949.

Thanks Mr Detrola. It's located by Traverse City if anyone is looking for a free donor. Otherwise I'll repurpose cabinet and do the unthinkable to the rest.

tasar,

If you're going to part it out I could use the high voltage cage. Please PM me if you go that route.

Thanks,
BobH

Depending on where the wires broke the CRT might be salvageable. Probably a 10FP4 which is fairly sought after. Probably worth your while to check it out.

I've been rather brutally vehicle-challenged of late or I'd run up and grab it. Too bulky and clumsy to strap it to the seat of my motorcycle...

I'm a strong advocate of not repurposing but the 810 is common enough and the knobs seem to be always missing and are extremely hard to find. Your set is far enough gone that you might as well have fun with what's left of it.

We'll see where this goes. I've removed faceframe carefully to harvest trim and glass. Cabinet is candidate to house a Scott Maritime SLRM receiver. I'll keep things as is as long as there's interest. I've got some time in this, so a small consideration and postage would be welcome. Anyone wanting additional photos please PM me.

It would be a shame to part this set out if it can be restored. I recently restored one and it is a great playing set. The picture tube is the aluminumized version of the 10BP4 which gives a much brighter picture.

Exactly.... someone willing to travel here gets entire set gratis, for their effort. Otherwise, it's pieced out. I'll give this a month in case someone does themselves a favor and visit our beautiful area to boot !

That red GE logo is worth setting aside. Craig
