Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

Hi David,
I'm loving the progress by the way.
I've uploaded a photo of how the vision unit would have looked with the original capacitors. The electrolytics in the one you are restoring have been very neatly fitted, so I would say definitely a manufacturer's post war overhaul.

Another thing I have noticed by looking at photos of other surviving T5 sets is that sometimes the speaker is on the other side of the cabinet. I can't see any reason why moving it to the other side would help really, so maybe it is just random...
