I salvaged an Electrohome 9000 from my university many years ago - it was getting thrown out - but never got anywhere close to making it work at home. It has just been sitting in my workshop and I sincerely doubt that it has any practical or money value except possible for parts. Please let me know ASAP if there is any reason why I shouldn't throw it out for good this time.

The device it in southern Sweden. As I am sure any connoisseur knows, it is VERY heavy.

If nothing else, the tubes, lenses and HVPS are worth something, even if you give them away to another CRT owner in Sweden.

true but those parts have a definite value, like a few hundred dollars. The tubes and lenses would install in a common Marquee 8500 chassis to make a 9500LC which is still in production today. At least give it to someone who wants it, there's at least a handful of CRT guys in Sweden.

Thanks guys... I kept it precisely because I thought it was an awesome machine (and know how much it cost originally!). So I couldn't bear to see it thrown out, but it is sort of in my way these days.

I'd be happy to give it away for free to somebody showing up at my doorstep but if I need to spend time taking it apart and mailing stuff off I would expect some sort of compensation.

if the tubes are rated a 9 or better i take em.
lenses might be nice too plus the lvps.

look at the following link for tube wear rating.
