NOTES You don't see that many Peto Scott sets, and this is only their second design. It was available with either a 9-inch (TV92) or 12-inch C.R.T. (TV122). They both used the same cabinet with this 9-inch version having a secondary wood screen surround to fill the gap. Having a 9" tube in a 12" cabinet also means that the CRT is more protected as there is no protrusion from the rear of the set.

I don't have any service data for this or their earlier model but I suspect that this chassis was derived from their first model.

Power Supply Chassis Piggy-back R.F. Section
Taking the power supply chassis, this is a big hole for a transformer and an empty valve socket. I suspect that this chassis was, in the previous model, equipped with a mains E.H.T section.

Then looking at the main chassis, the R.F. section is actually a piggy-backed chassis. The earlier model was London only, whereas the TV92 was available for either London or Birmingham, presumably acieved by swapping the R.F. section.
SERVICE DATA Nope :-(
CURRENT STATE The finish is rough and there are a few worm holes here and there. But it's all there (including a decent back).
WHERE
FOUND
Rescued from (of all places) a railway engineering works under a pile of metalwork by Chris, who part exchanged it with me for 40 drinking vouchers.
