That's the other side panel re-veneered. The left side panel will be the one with the on-off switch.

First picture. That wasn't too difficult after all. Today I refitted the timebase controls door ball catch to the front panel.

Second picture.
Over the weekend the left side panel was reassembled. Also the cabinet floor plinth. Not too sure about that one and it's possible a new one might be have to be made. The old plinth had received some attention from the woodworms.

No point in risking it, after all the hard work you have put in the last thing you need is a re infestation!

Hi Mark,
It's an easy enough part to replicate. Took a look at the reassembled plinth this morning and it is a horrible looking thing, and as you say there might well be some wee things living in it.

Well certainty the plinth has to be very strong on such a heavy set. Maybe a new one would be safer even just from a structural point of view.

Cheers

At last it's beginning to look like a Baird T5 again.

Final assembly of the cabinet started today. The cabinet parts shown in the attachment have been glued into position. The timebase controls door opens and closes as it should.

The left side panel was fitted today.

The cabinet floor was test fitted but will not be screwed and glued into position until all the guide blocks for the two power supply units are fitted.

It's the new cabinet floor that is receiving attention to today. With a little fettling it's now a perfect fit. But before it is screwed and glued into position the wooden blocks which locate the two power units must be fitted first.
The cabinet floor certainly stiffens up the cabinet structure.

I now have to determine the exact positions for the Power supply units and the central wooden block that supports the focus coil assembly.
