I faced a similar problem on my RCA 621TS, except that somebody in the past had wanted a larger sized picture so they cut a bigger hole in the CRT escutcheon !

When I first saw it I thought Gulp ! how to fix it. I thought of simply re-manufacturing the part, but I wanted to save as much of the original part as possible.

So I decided to cut it out further and glue in some Tasmanian Oak with epoxy resin. After that I re-worked it by hand to create the original shape (see pictures). It was a long job.
