    Free AND LONG GONE

    The Lucky Winner was Tom Baugues. He timed it well because someone else would have won if he had been later. I went by the time placed on the PM to pick the winner. I just had a horrible thought---Is that time stamp my Pacific time or were these guys (all male) in different time zones and their zone was what I read? I hope I did not cheat anyone.

    Hi,

    I have a very old MT-1 collet that looks absolutely new, like it just came out of the box. I do not have anything to use it in.

    It is free to anyone who can use it.

    Pictures and a bit of a mystery attached. Does anyone recognize the background in one of the pics?

    Enjoy,

    Dan is right.
    During WWII radio and transmitting tubes were sent to us in bags like this.

    Instead of trashing the bags I saved a bunch of them. I still have about a half-dozen of them. I have used them for all sorts of thing over the years.

    That was considered to be a small tube. During that period I think that the 6H6 was the only tube that was smaller. Some of the transmitting tubes were large enough to hold a couple dozen iPhones. And did those babys get hot.

    Enjoy,

    No, I "blue" it. I do have some experience with vacuum tubes though. Still have a couple of guitar amps that use them. (I even have a MIDI preamp with tubes.)
