Rediffusion 20" model.

Post by Marcus 3500 » Sun Nov 08, 2015 1:44 pm

Hello :)

I picked this set up from the dump it site in 2006. Not sure what model it is as I've never looked at it, it's just been sat in my old car at my mums.

Will get round to looking at it, but not anytime soon. Workshop just too full.

Its utilises a MK.1 chassis, same as used in the CU2213 we've all recently repaired. I believe it started in 1973/4 and ran for a few years. Malc will be able to give definitive dates.

If you want a good look around inside and some tech spec's seeing as you haven't opened yours see here

Full service data manual is in the Technical Library.

Well if you ever feel like shifting it before restoring it, I'm always ready to take it :bba

CU2010, 20 inch Mk1 aerial set. Made 1973/76 at St Helens factory, Bishop Auckland. Very nice reliable sets, i have had one in my collection since 1976. Various make crt,s were used, Mullard, Mazda and Toshiba. Mine still has its original Toshiba crt and still give a nice bright, sharp picture. A bit awkward to work on, compared to the 22/26 inch versions, Malc

Superb write up Chris with ton's of info :) Thank you for pointing me in the right direction and for taking the time to put up all this very useful information.

Cheers Malc :aad Cracking info. Nice to know that one more still survives, any other member have the 20" version?

Sadly Aidan I'm going to keep the set. A local guy I know bought 2 small Decca Bradfords off Gumtree about 3 years ago 17" or 18" versions. I've not seen him for some time so I'm not sure if he still owns them. His plan was to slice off the top inside of the tube and use the tube has the fish tank :ccf

Let me know if your interested in them and I will try and call at his before I go back home. I'm at my mums at the moment until Monday or Tuesday. If he does want to sell them I'm guessing he would want the money he paid for them which I think was £85 and his fuel money. They came from Cornwall.

Hello Aidan,

I called at Martin's house at teatime to see if he still had the sets he does :) but they look rather ruff to me and the insides have been binned possibly, he's not sure. They are right at the back of his garage and with no light it was hard to see with just a torch. They are both model number CS1830 so you might want to let Mr Crusty have one or both. It was his parents first colour tv I think?

Regarding price he told me to "make me an offer" I said I would, but it depends on A if the parts are all there and B if the tubes test ok.

If he can get access to them before Tuesday I will go back with my tube tester, if not it will have to be sometime in January next year. Hope that helps :)

It was indeed our first colour TV and it is true I have been searching for one for ages. However I would not wish to step on Aidan's toes. If however Aidan decided that a basket case repair is a too much for his first foray into colour, I'm more than happy to take basket cases on.

Hello Aidan,

I've spoken to Martin and he's not had time to clear his garage out, so it will be sometime next year when I get the chance to see him next. Marcus.

Cheers, Marcus.

I hope both or at least one have the insides remaining!
