    Crossing to the Thermonic Dark Side

    Build a tube amplifier, buy tubes, buy more tubes, plan more tube amps, plan tube pre amp build, buy more tubes.......

    Then, I guess you need something to check your tubes with? Laughing Laughing


    I replaced the panel and mounting harware with new SS replacements, then had it refurbished and calibrated. I had not seen one of these since, televisions had tubes!

    That's a Beauty!

    When I was a kid, I worked at a drugstore that had a "Do it Yourself" tube tester.
    Nobody was allowed to Do it Themselves, the Manager always made me do it for them.

    I was actually pretty pleased with that; so, one day, I asked the Manager why me?
    I figured he'd say something nice about my education
    (a whole year of electronics shop in high school!),
    or that I was good with customers, or some similar thing.

    Alas no, the answer I got was,

    "Well Kid, I guess you're expendable."

    Very Happy Tom
