WTD: a few color tv tubes & 3.58 xtal

Post by french » Sat, 24 Sep 2005 22:54:47



Anybody out there with a garagefull of old tubes they can't bear to
throw out wanna help me out again?  ; )  Looking for reasonably priced
tubes for an old color RCA CTC-10 remote control console behemoth TV
I'm fixin' up that has been on the back burner.  A few weak tubes...
some others that some repairman swiped off of the remote control
chassis... and a couple of spare tubes just in case.  And also looking
for a solid state 3.58 crystal as I have a dead oscillator right now so
I want to replace this and get it out of the scenario while I'm trying
other fixes as well in that circuit.  Tubes don't have to be new,
whatever you got that you are pretty sure aren't bad.  Or if you don't
know condition I will pay for shipping on those anyway.  Thanks!  I
think this is all of them:

6EV7   x 3  
12AZ7
12AX7
6EA8
6AW8
6DQ5  
6GM6
6BZ6
6EM7
3.58 crystal

Mark,

I will look through my stocks this weekend. As before you are welcome to
anything on the list I have, no charge. I still have a couple thousand TV
type tubes that I can not bear to throw out, but which I have no use for. I
will drop you a line over the weekend when I get a chance to see what I
have.

I had 2 or 3 brand new color burst crystals that I sold with a bunch of misc
parts a few months ago. Radio Shack used to carry them.

Alright, thanks, you did this once before for me and it got my CTC-16
humming along nicely!  No hurry, I been sitting on this dead oscillator
thing for months now anyway, but finally am poking around in the set
again after dragging it out of the garage  : )
I'd suspect the 6ev7s might be less common since they are on the remote
chassis which were rare back then, but maybe they are common in other
stuff.

Frency,
Email me your address, I have 300 of the 3.58 mhz crystals in my parts
cabinet. Probably 299 more than I need, I'll send you a few gratis.

I just took a look, the actual frequency of my crystals is 3.57945 mhz, can
you use it?

Regards,

Also any standard subsitutes will do for any of these, for 6ev7s there
is 6GU7or 6FQ7, I'm not that picky...Frenchy
