Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

The mirror lid escaped the attention of the woodworms and can be refurbished. It doesn't look all that pretty for sure but there is no doubt it can be saved.
A few pieces of veneer will have to be inserted to correct slight damage. The surface silvered mirror is in excellent condition.
A new laminated safety glass has been made. The original had become delaminated and was discoloured anyway.

The line output transformer has open circuit windings and that's holding up the timebase restoration.
