Default Valves, Lots of Magic Eyes, Rectifiers, ECC85 & others

As title.
I have just kept back around 5 or 6 different magic eyes, but even so doubt they would ever get used by me! Not often these are offered here.
The pictures were taken in my shack during daylight hours and are useful for comparison purposes.

MAGIC EYES on this first post are Octals plus the special B7G one.

NO HAT! First to say any item wanted by replying in the thread will get their request.

Every one of these valves offered has taken a lot of my effort to test, then photograph and offer here and there MIGHT be the occasional error!
ALL are USED, unless otherwise described.
Unless otherwise stated or my test figures given, all valves are tested as being ok and fairly close to spec. However, please see the pictures of Magic Eyes and some with my ESTIMATED percentage of brightness given compared with new valves.
The ECC85 are NOT tested tested in a vhf tuner head, only with avo valve tester and dc tests.

Please reply ONLY on this thread initially with any wants giving MY valve type number together with letter suffix if applicable, then others can see what has gone.
PLEASE WAIT for my first message that will have my email address and payment information
Any questions, please ask on this thread so others can see the Q & A.

Depending on total weight of Parcel (2kg max for a small parcel, larger sizes available at extra cost) and also the contents value, a minimum cost of £4.00 for up to 2kg Small Parcel. £5.40 signed for if value is £20-£50.
I only post once or maybe twice a week.
I do not use services other than royal mail.
I will not attempt to post any B9A valve as a large letter in a padded bag, it is asking for trouble!
I have to buy virtually all my posting boxes and other materials and their prices have increased dramatically!

Bank transfer is much preferred, but I will also accept paypal friends and family where I don't have to pay any commission and a cheque is also accepted.


OCTAL MAGIC EYES with 5 pictures.

A. CV51, £3
B. CV51 , £4
C. TESTED AS Y63, £5
D. Y64, £4
E. V1103-Y63, £5
F. 6U5G, 103l £5
G. 6U5G 104 mm overall straight sides, £6
H. VI103-Y63 £5
I. ME41, 85mm overall straight side, £8

ALL EM34 BELOW HAVE SCRATCHES AND PAINT LOSS
J. EM34, £8
K. EM34, £9
L. EM34 £14
M. EM34, £18
N. 6M1, 83mm overall straight side, £12

That's hours of work there, must have taken a few hours to type it all up, kudos. Thanks for listing them Robin, hope they find good homes.

Am interested in the matched pair of KT33C, they would be good for a transmitter modulator I am thinking of building.

And the 'E' in the first list. The VI103/Y63 magic eye as a spare for a somewhat reworked (I think commercially, it looks a lot better than an amateur bodge job) Pye / Philips PCR receiver I have here.

Will DM you when I get home from my current hilltop perch.

All Noted.
Below spoken for.

q EM81 , C & E Y63, M EM34, b & c EM84 and the matched pair KT33C

Will send details later today, in case any other gas voltage stabilisers & reference tubes wanted as well. I need to get them sorted, as in several boxes. Both B7G and Octals. New and used.
Got to go out shortly and when I get back I will dig around.

Rob

Just to clarify, my post #2, Rectifiers;
1x Used AZ1 Mullard, later badge, Tested as above but a little bit more from edge of white area. £5
What I meant to say is, it is further away from lower edge. ie, more towards the centre, a slightly better result. Hence the £5 against the £4.

Regarding my statement about all of my new or used AZ31 that I tested indicating low, I just found correspondence (via pm) with another member who confirms he found the same results happening as what I did, in comparison with other rectifiers he tested.
This would also apply to my two AZ1 offered.

Rob,

Please can I put my name down for the EL35. I’ve been looking for some of these for a while.

I await your message.

I’ll use bank transfer.

Update.
The EL35 and single KT33C now spoken for.

Whilst searching for a suitable packing box, I found eight EY84 rectifiers inside one!
After I have tested them all, I will offer on here.

Good morning Rob,
Could I go for the 6E5M please. I have a Heathkit tuner that has two in it and had given up hope of finding one at least.
Kind regards,
