Well, folks, Uncle Al had a LOT of medicine one night, last week and woke up the next morning with this......marvelous mixture of the old and the new....vintage tv/modern art......completely restored Admiral 20X11....with 10" screen/10BP4 crt and speaker......a few words about the speaker.....specially chosen and MUCH smaller than the standard 12 or even 14 inch speaker that came in the console models....it has the PERFECT "Metal" sound because of the strong input to an undersized speaker... like sound coming from inside of the Tin Woodsman in the Wizard of OZ.....very nice effect......the stand is a custom fabrication with threaded feet for perfect leveling or for an "off balance" or bizarre tilt.....you choose.....custom 3/8" thick knobs....all features and adjustments are completely functional.....chassis is polished for a metal finish to keep a consistent visual effect.....this set is not for everyone...but it may be for you.....please look at all the pictures and ask all questions before bidding..36 x 24 x 20....weight 85 lbs.....this is a local pick up or I will work with your shipper......if you make an offer I'll assume you find this unique, one-of-a-kind piece acceptable to you.....for sale in a retail facility....can sell at any time....thanks very much for looking.

A few thoughts about safety.....this model has a transformer....power to run the set is coupled inductively and not directly (making the metal chassis the return)...a simple 1/8" thick Lexan sheet is flexible enough to be fastened on either side of the chassis forming an arc to isolate the hot wire to the CRT........ the high voltage section is caged and grounded, with an interlock to prevent the set from powering up when it is removed.....all that being said, you would not want to have this set around children.....but I think you probably know that already.....

This chassis is an "orphan"....it was left by the front door of my store....as my friend John Horvath has said....."no televisions were harmed in the making of "metalvision".
