Nick,
Where does this leave the ETF effort?

I do not speak for the museum, you have to ask Steve. They are still able to build tubes and demonstrate how the equipment works, this is simply a move by me to be able to provide a consistent service to people on a continuing basis instead of only 2 weeks out of the year. It does not affect anything the museum is doing, and I can still build tubes there if necessary.

Sounds like a plan! Thanks for undertaking this effort. I think there will continue to be a small but important market for rebuilding CRTs.

In my former much-younger life, I worked for an electronics distributor. We sold CRTs by the thousands. We took in "duds" which were returned for rebuilding and for sale at a lower price than new CRTs. Those days are long gone now.

I would like to see someone make a very detailed instructional video as to how this entire process is done. Otherwise, it will be another lost art and noone down the line will be able to figure it all out. Perhaps the ETF has already done so, forgive me if I am ill-informed..lol.
This piece of equipment is an amazing contraption... how many can still possibly exist??

I can see the auction is closed now. Did miniman sealed the deal and got the equipment at last ? It would be reassuring having confirmation it's between good hands now...

I am curious as I have a shop to move soon. Did you need a company that specialized in hauling machinery (with forklift, etc)? How heavy was the largest piece? and what company did you use?
