Default Re: Baird T5 retoration project.

The Baird tubes seem to have had a fairly short working life, but I can tell you that having restored a T5 with a good CRT that they are capable of really excellent pictures.
I'll second that. There was a working T5 at the Science Museum Exhibition (re. Gordon Bussey) in 1980, and the picture was bright and sharp... the picture looked big for a pre-war set too.
