I have really built up my vintage electronic components collection over the past few months and I expect this section to explode once I finish up this High Res review that is taking up 95% of my time/attention right now. This is basically a place-marker for right now.
Is the spool of wire at the rear of the unit a way to create a lot of inductance or what? I am unclear on this part right now (at the end of the CRT)
I finally realized, this is the base of an electron tube. A really really big tube, biggest I have ever dealt with. Dangerous voltage levels here
