Vintage vacuum Tubes (TV) free to a good home


I ran across a small box of vacuum tubes left over from my service shop twenty-five years ago. Several are new in the box. I often got stuck with tv tubes that I bought that didn't fix the problem. I'd put them in inventory and use in a different tv that came in. I always gave the customer any bad tubes that I replaced.

I sold my tube tester decades ago. Someone with an Ebay account could sell these. Vintage, working tubes are sought after. But, you'd need to test them first. Maybe a Radio Shack somewhere still has a tube tester? They used to be in every Radio Shack. Or someone might still buy them (cheaper) untested. Vintage tubes can be a bitch to find when you need one. I repaired my dad's Hallicrafter multiband radio and had to buy tubes and fresh capacitors a couple years ago.

If you want them, PM me or post here. I'll get you're address and send them.

16 tubes new in the original box, and a ECG 113A Silicon dual diode (tv horiz AFC) that was in the box too.

11kv8, 5gs7, 6cg8a, 10jy8, 17bf11, 11af9, 12sj7, 5y3gt, 12dt8, 6ea8, 5gh8a, 6gh8a, 1v2, 8fq7/8cg7, 3ha5, 11ms8

Google any tube name and you'll get the type and pin out. I'd suggest checking the filaments with a multimeter before selling them to anyone. Unless you're lucky enough to still have a tube tester.
this is the 11ms8

there's a 11ms8 on Ebay for $7.20 right now. I just don't want to mess with selling on Ebay. my Ebay account isn't set up to sell.

OK, thanks. I'll pass, though. My wife thinks I already have quite enough spare electronic parts lying around (as if such a thing were possible.)

pm me an address and I'll get them in the mail. It's a small box and inexpensive to mail.
