I wasn't gonna use them anyway. For me? Tube rolling is where it's at. I wish you had heard Jerry's Dalquist's.

These are Bob's, not yours.treitz3 wrote:Whoever has them, they need to be returned to Bob.
There is no harm, no foul as the tube build was pure discombobulation [concerning parts] at best. Point being, these belong to Bob and collectively we need to get them back to him.
Don't sweat it guys, Bob said not to worry about it, I was just pointing out that they went missing.

I'll get em out early next week.
Actually, you do not need the diagram. Looks like one minor change. Just short pins 4 and 5 together to give the tube 12v. Change it back for the 6v variants.
