"I'm interested in how your 510 project(s) go.  I got one for cheap on eBay some time ago, as it wasn't listed well and didn't have the amplifier.  I figured I could make up something for a power supply and use it for a…"

Shielded Grid Wire

Shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is not easy to find but is an appropriate replacement for the shielded wire with rubber insulation (now failing) employed in many Scott models.  A roll of shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is currently being offered at the link below.…See More

"Progress Report:   I'm starting to work on the top of the chassis.  I've removed the coil and tuning cap covers.  I see some original and some replacement caps.  I plan to replace all of the paper caps and check…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Thomas Peters's discussion pointer/indicator....
"Dave: Thomas was asking about the pointers, not the meter.  I suspect the pointers are all the same but I have not checked.  FYI, the AW-12 meter is different than that used for the AW-15 and AW-23.  The meter mounting post was on the…"

David C. Poland replied to Thomas Peters's discussion pointer/indicator....
"Based on the placement of the meter in the circuit, I suspect the AW-15 and AW-23 use the same tuning meter, but I the AW-12 meter may be different. Haven't had an occasion to find out because, for my one problem meter  I was able to…"

"Norm - what instrument do you use to measure the cap values? I have a choice of an  EICO 950-B  I recapped  ...  and the big Hickok 209 A.  For capacitance, neither is real accurate, so when I care, I compare to new…"

"Without digging thru the archives, I believe the solution was to measure thru a bunch of caps and find a pair that measured high, and a pair that measured low. It may be possible to find NOS film caps that are a better fit value wise. I don't…"

"Plan calls for a pair of .02 and a pair of .025 caps.  I think most have replaced all with .022 and all worked fine. No, replacing all four capacitors with 0.022 will not work.  The trap will not be tuned to the remnant hum from the…"

I thought it might be worth raising this issue again. There's new legislation pending in Europe which is going to make re-chroming even more difficult to achieve, although for those like myself the…Continue

6K7G Vacuum Tubes at AES

Posted by Ken Carr on April 29, 2015 at 6:46pm 3 Comments

I just received an order from Antique Electronic Supply.

Just in case anyone is interested, they have some real nice 6K7G tubes in true NOS condition for only $2.38 each. These are JAN  military spec. tubes with the RCA logo on them. They look real nice and work just fine.

I also purchased a JAN 6J5WGT to replace my 6J5G which was highly microphonic. The tube I received works nicely and it is also a new condition (NOS)…

SLR-M featured in SWLing Post article

He uses the AMT3000 to transmit music. He then receives and plays it on the SLR-M. A video is included with the story.
