Bottom left is a 9 pin right angle PCB socket (Sold) and to it's right are 2 types of PCB 7 & 9 pin tube sockets, upper left an 8 pin PCB socket and the others are a few other types of vintage hard to find plugs & sockets. Email for further information & costs and, if looking for something specific, please include a photo of the item and I'll see what I can find.

Silver Plated 4CX Tube Type Housing

This home brew silver plated tube housing with a built-in plate tuning capacitor has become tarnished, but can be easily cleaned with a little silver cleaner and will save much of the hard work if you plan to build a VHF or UHF amplifier.

Qty: 1$50

I will even
include this
tube if it hasn't
been sold.

Vintage Tubes


Used from the
late 20's to early 30's

224+ Tetrode

A 224+ (left) with an engraved base and . . . .

 . . . . a 224-A (right)

Used in late 20's to early 30's.

Is the 224PLUS the same as a 224-A, something special, or simply a regular 224 and a labelling trick by Rogers to help sell their 224 tube?

I like to display these 3 tubes, but if someone needs them for a collection (or whatever as they may still be useable),
I will let them go for $25 ea.  And I'm no tube expert so check the main Tube Page for other collectable vintage tubes
that I may have, but not know about.
