I dont think so ,i'd heard old radio and amp valves were reaching 'new heights'


There is some old ceramic fuses that are going for high prices,these things are now nearly impossible to find

A butchers i used to work in found out when we [ok me :oops: ]dropped a mains fuse on the ground breaking it in two,the electricians, the boss phoned to replace it told him 'no chance in hell' of finding 50 yr old fuses and a new box was about his only option
It was luck that i knew a old retired electrician,[a friend of dads] who sourced the replacement ,which still cost £40

Hahaha I saw that on Craigslist. Somebody has too much money, too much time, and possibly too few braincells. :lol:

I suppose they could have been dead before he started though. :?:

More fool people like us, for pushing up the value of old stuff.

I’m not talking about price – these are vacuum tubes, he has removed the glass for cleaning! :?

Aye- my brother rebuilds old Marshalls, price of valves is high............and I'd agree that the outer glass and the lack of air which it accommodates is a fairly essential bit of them....... :P
