Excellent, thanks. I thought I had read every brochure in the library :-)


Browsing the 71 general catalog, and the 1W and 3 are still offered for sale.

Like these? Nothing else I can find from that era looks like the TSW boxes.


"Notes: These are nothing special but are somewhat of a rarity. I believe the 1002 is nothing more than a re-badged original Advent Baby. It definitely has the Jensen styling so it must have been made after the takeover sometime in the mid 90s. That and the two models are identical apart from the badge placement!"

I've attempted updates to AR and KLH histories. See below.

Kent, you are quite welcome! I knew if it could light up faded auto side molding

(which nothing else but paint will do), I suspected it could help you. I hadn't

considered using it on vinyl siding, but it apparently shines up quite a few

different kinds of surfaces.

Kent, for the knobs, there's a product called Wipe New

that might restore their look. It's basically a thin acrylic

clear coat for restoring the finish on bumpers and cladding.

I've used a similar product to restore fogged plastic



Here's a Consumer Reports test (on a car :-))
