Precision Apparatus Model CR−60 Picture Tube Tester and Rejuvenator Manual - RF CafeThis Precision Apparatus Model CR−60 appeared on eBay. The starting bid price was $19.99, but nobody bought it.

In the years between graduating from high school and the time I enlisted in the USAF that I worked as an electrician and did many in-home service calls, never once did I encounter a situation like our hero Pete did here. In fact, I doubt many television and radio servicemen ever did, either. According to most of the anecdotes related by electronics servicemen, homeowners were more likely to be abusive than dotingly appreciative. In the era (c1962) when this Precision Apparatus Model CR−60 Picture Tube Tester and Rejuvenator advertisement appeared in Radio-Electronics magazine, people were crazy about their televisions, especially as color broadcasts occurred more frequently, and many got helplessly depressed when the set went on the blink. Rather than treating the repairman like these babes did, owners often acted like it was the service guy's fault the problem happened and balked at the service charge, with many try to get out of paying. Take a look through the many comics I have posted and you'll see lots of examples. A few of the Mac's Service Shop techno-sagas carry the theme. Yes, I colorized the image.
