Default 6J5GT Valve Wanted

Found this little guy in an Advance J-1 signal generator, and I decided it's time he went into retirement.

Does anyone have a 6J5GT hanging about that would like a new home?

Hi,

If a 6J5 Brimar Metal can NOS will do, then I have one of those. Or maybe you want the GT version?

AFAIK the only difference is that the GT is a “glass tube” and this isn’t for show, so I think that would be ok. Could you please PM me your price? Thanks!

If the little guy works electrically you can repair the metal skirt with care such as epoxy glue held tight with a cable tie until the glue has set. Seems a shame to junk it. Might not look pretty but maybe useful as an emergency spare. Cheers, Jerry
