She looks like something out of Dr Who as a Dalek

Amazing what they come out with in those days, probably in a hundred years they will laugh at our things we use now!

LOL, and a S&F for you OP.
I really enjoy this thread a lot, and will look at all the links later. I started my electronics career with valves, and shocked myself a couple of times, as a very naive youngster, getting valves from all over, and running them from mains ..... lol .... just had an old filament transformer for the filaments, but the HV secondary was burnt out, and I never had money (or enough wire) to rewire the HV secondary...... The HV came straight from mains through a rectifier, rofl ..... Well, those were not that safest radio's one could get, but I managed to receive some radio stations, even though it is a miracle that I am still alive
..... Somehow I learnt a lot more with those ancient devices than what one can learn today with microcontrollers in everything. At least the components were large enough that I could solder with my dad's large 100W soldering iron. Nowadays I can't even see the components with my naked eyes, and I have to work under a microscope.... Ohhh, those were the days


On an interesting note, read some Elektor articles the other day, in which they ran valves on Low-voltage, like in less than 12V.

Are those twin triodes (12a*7's?)

I immediately had the urge to pull those out of her head and jam them into the front end of my guitar amp


$8 seems like a lot for 1949? Barely post-war.....
