1956 Admiral 10" Portable

Model T-105 AL*

This set is a terrific two-tone Green, with Gold anodized knobs and handle.

Compared to the Turquoise Admiral, this set was easy to get working.

Plugging it in produced sound, but no picture. No light on the screen is often caused by a lack of high voltage to the CRT, so I took a guess, changed the 12AX4 Damper tube and the set started working.

Knowing the set didn't have any serious problems, I replaced all the paper capacitors, but not the electrolytics, the set works well, but has a slight side to side weave in the picture so I probably will have to do those eventually.

*The AL apparently indicates the case is Aluminum, as the Turquoise Admiral has a steel case.
