Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

Hi Steve,
Well, it was a sort of an anti-climax. Apart from dressing up like the Michelin Man wearing googles and a face visor the tube was simply lifted out and placed on the special stand. That was a good idea of Andy's to suggest I should make it to facilitate easy removal of the tube. It is a big tube but it doesn't weight very much being made with very thin glass.

The EHT transformer in my HMV 901 has failed so that's another tube out job before access to the power supply unit is possible.
And to think we thought the Emiscope 6/6 tube was a scary thing.
