Default Baird T5 restoration project.

As you can see from the pictures this Baird T5 TV set has a problem with the cabinet. Woodworm! In fact I reckon the cabinet is in a worse state than the HMV 900 that appeared on this Forum back in 2011.
The two power supply assemblies were removed today only to discover that the cabinet floor is completely rotten and it's likely so is the shelf that supports the timebase chassis and the separate vision and sound receivers.

It's going to be a complete cabinet rebuild.

Note the "Televisor" emblem instead of the usual Baird brand name. There is a small label inside the cabinet informing us that the set was made by Bush Radio Ltd.
