more fun things

 

I just went to a Halloween themed flea market, in Dupage county, IL. not a lot of good picks, mostly junk (the all night flea market is much better).  But I did find one thing. I found and purchased a Futba vintage receiver, from the 80’s I think. The guy originally wanted $80 for the thing, but I worked him down to $40. I know the battery is no good, but the servos work, transmitter is untested, no battery corrosion and all wires are in good condition, the receiver is also untested but I am sure it all works.

Now just to find a project for it 🙂

Another new piece of equipment that a coworker had sitting in there garage, I bought it from them, since it was collecting dust and probably would have been sitting there for years to come, unloved and unused .

This tube tester was made by precision apparatus company, model 10-12, I couldn’t find a manufacture date on it but google shows that this one was made 20-40 years ago and is a top rated mobile tube tester.
Supposedly it can test antique and new tubes with out a problem.

I can’t wait till I can get this thing tested and up and running, because I have some tubes I need to test. I really hope it doesn’t catch fire when I first plug it in.

Advise for the day, you can find cool things almost anywhere, from your friends garage to that old rickety shop on the corner.
