This thing is barely tested. The previous owner plugged it in, waited maybe one minute, nothing happened and he gave up. Nobody checked for missing fuses, loose connectors, safety switches or even that the power outlet was really live.
It's a fairly large screen vintage b/w television in a nicely preserved wooden enclosure. The controls are simple: on/off-sound (ringed with tone), channel select (ringed with fine tuning). It looks like the tuner covers VHF only -- no UHF. VHF is fine for VCR or video game signals. The cabinet has two speakers below the screen and wooden doors to hide the glass when not in use.
Vacuum tube circuitry, of course.
