Anyone buying power tube duds anymore

Post by REW » Thu Dec 21, 2017 4:35 pm

I have 2 4CX35000 tubes. Anyone still buy these for dud value. I checked with Econco and they no longer buy the duds.

Thanks.

You might check with Richardson Electronics / D&C Electronics. There are a few other industrial rebuilders around but if Econco nor D&C won't buy them...

Check with Rich at the FL REI office (formerly D&C): 352-592-7800

Thanks Kevin. I have already checked with Richardson and they weren't interested. I will check with D&C. If no one wants them I guess I can make me a 4CX35000 table lamp. My wife would throw me and the lamp out..

Merry Christmas

D&C has mostly merged with REI so the answer may be the same but I would check with Rich at the FL office. He might have a suggestion for someone that would be interested.

I also recalled seeing a company called http://www.kennetron.com/ that is an industrial tube rebuilder.

Outside of those, you might try them on Ebay.
