Hi guys
I am going my late father's valve collection to see what I really need to keep. I am only into radios so if I can't cross match any of these TV valves to radios they will go.
So far I have indexed 1760 valves with 6 large boxes to go.
If you are looking for valves contact me, my email address is open in my profile.
Peter

Hi Peter, I am looking for a 6BM4 and a 6EH7 or some other valve that fits the slot in this Astor TV that I am trying to test them as I don't know if this Astor works, first am going to replace caps and resistors and transformers.

Nathan
did you get my email? I have 2 6EH7 for you.

I have asked Peter earlier about the 6BM4, he will let us know if one turns up.

Ben

OK, and send the 6EH7's to me I'll email you address and Mum might be coming home on friday so I will let you know, and I'll post a picture of the valve socket in the Astor so I know which valve I am getting, it is very hard to get the valve in since the socket is near the CRT, and btw have you got any spare caps and resistors? I need higher voltage caps and resistors as Jaycar do not stock the caps I need.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...
