Restoring the RCA TK-41
Here is an outline of how we hope a approach it:
March 1-2, 2016
Here is the slant rack, after sand blasting and painting. The control panel and processing amplifier have been mounted. For now, a piece of black poster board is on the desk area. We will have a piece of black laminate cut.

When the bottom metal piece is removed from this rack, it will be the same height as the rack for the color controls. It will have the TM-6 master monitor. To the left will be our TM-21 color monitor.

These units will be available at the convention for you to take home with you. We will have documentation available. Contact us if you are interested in doing a unit.
