Surely these ought to be split between members that might need them. I can't think of any reason for one person to need six rectifiers of the same type at one go unless they're a dealer?

Obviously it's up to David what he does with his valves, but just saying....

As you say yourself, that is purely a matter for David.

Certain applications of valves tended to use them in rather larger multiples than a typical radio or TV, computers being an obvious example. I sometimes run into this problem with electronic musical instruments, which may have dozens of the same type working under the same conditions, which therefore all wear out at the same rate. When, after 60 years' regular use, the emission has fallen too far for satisfactory operation, mass replacements are needed and buying valves in ones and twos doesn't get very far. FWIW, I do have one machine that needs six rectifiers, and that is just the start of it.

Fair points made and point taken and David has stated a price for all six in one go. I think the other David does work with computers now I come to think of it, so he should have them all

Sorry Chaps,
All six valves went in a one-er, just a few minutes after being posted. Seemingly they have a quad amp application(4 plus two spare). However, many thanks for the interest.

Regards, David
