PETO SCOTT TV92
|You don't see that many Peto Scott sets, and this is only their second
design. It was available with either a 9-inch (TV92) or 12-inch C.R.T. (TV122).
They both used the same cabinet with this 9-inch version having a secondary
wood screen surround to fill the gap. Having a 9" tube in a 12"
cabinet also means that the CRT is more protected as there is no protrusion
from the rear of the set.
I don't have any service data for this or their earlier model but I suspect that this chassis was derived from their first model.
Then looking at the main chassis, the R.F. section is actually a piggy-backed chassis. The earlier model was London only, whereas the TV92 was available for either London or Birmingham, presumably acieved by swapping the R.F. section.
|The finish is rough and there are a few worm holes here and there. But it's all there (including a decent back).
|Rescued from (of all places) a railway engineering works under a pile of metalwork by Chris, who part exchanged it with me for 40 drinking vouchers.
