  5. Hey Bret,
    Could you lay off the swearing? I hear enough of it during the day,
    which I have no control over and I don't appreciate reading it at this tube
    hobby group. It's uncalled for. If you look in your dictionary, there are
    many, many other words you can use to express anger, surprise, bewilderment,
    etc. Expand your vocabulary!

    I'm sorry I offended anyone. My point was that this one ollie has
    bought EVERY ONE of these things on eBay in over a year. He junks
    them out for the transformers. I'm disappointed in my fellow Americans
    at not driving the price into the stratosphere like they should
    because our country is being bought out from under us.
     
  10. somehow me thinks that you just want to buy some of them for a pricetag
    thats cheaper than the going market price. Apparently your pocket
    isn't deep enough to get one... therefore suggest that you consider
    spending your time earning some $$ Money $$ instead of whining to
    the newsgroups about your lack of funds...

    Or perhaps spend your time looking in places other than FleaBay
    like Hamfests and such.... perhaps the price there would be a
    little better?

    Bret, it would make much more sense for your posts to inform us what you are talking
    about, rather than just posting the text from the auction.

    If you want us to know that one person is buying all these for a particular reason,
    then that is what you need to say. If this "ollie" is paying the top dollar for
    them, and apparently he must be if he is winning them all, then he is free to do what
    he wants with them. Maybe you should learn to mind your own business, and quit
    trying to stir up others with matters that only seem to concern you. If you think
    the American people should pay more than what these are worth just to keep them from
    "ollie", go ahead and spend your own money on them. Go ahead, fill your basement
    with them. But please stop cross-posting these delusional reports in such a
    non-sensical way. I don't think anyone in the antique radio group cares about your
    crusades. And apparently you are the only one who considers that this is a political
    issue, worthy of your paranoid rantings. No need to blame all Americans for not
    thinking the way you do. We have enough nuts like you around as it is.

    So what is wrong with him buying them all and "junking them out"? They
    are apparently not useful as they are and so don't command a high price.
    If they are somehow such a great bargain at the current price, why don't
    you buy them up and resell them to the "ollie"? Why would any right
    thinking American want one of these "Woo Woos" in the first place?


    Regards,

    John Byrns

    This is actually an intelligent question. In the 70s and 80s the
    Japanese, primarily then, bought up ALL of the extant WE theater gear.
    Usually at very low prices to the American sellers. Now there are none
    of these left, but at least most are still in good condition if you
    want to go to Japan to see one. Now these WE boxes are being parted
    out and trashed for some transformers which are not terribly good, but
    the orientals-now mostly Koreans and politically connected mainland
    Chinese-fetishize them. The trend of all our old stuff going over
    there for peanuts isn't good.

    The WE 19C is a dedicated telco box that is useful today
    for.....well, admittedly not a lot. It is a heterodyne oscillator that
    has such colossal phase noise that you can hear it do weird things to
    small line fluctuations right through, usually, its own caps, which
    are noisy as many were made between 1946 and 1961. It's one of the
    few pieces of test equipment that is built electrically with series
    heater string and "hot chassis", except the chassis itself isn't. An
    isolated bus bar provides rail voltages.

    An interesting telco collectible because most all of them went
    through rework and have many interesting variations. The same one has
    either a front lid or rack ears. The power cord may be run out front
    or the side, either a fixed cord or a socket, but never a socket on
    the front. Most were made with the WE center swing "speedometer" meter
    but some like this last one had more conventional meter movements.

    The heterodyne oscillator is described in works like Williams et al
    as a crude stopgap but Mr. Dick Pierce has informed us, thanks to my
    ranting, the concept has a great advantage in frequency-swept work and
    was made in highly stable form by Bruel and Kjaer and others.

    I actually own two of these now. What's amazing is that though both
    were filthy and had a lot of oxidation inside I took a chance and
    plugged both straight in to the outlet. Both worked flawlessly. In
    contrast I own three HP tube audio oscillators in lunchbox cases, and
    while all three work I had to do a fair amount of renovation on all
    three.

    You have to be joking. Around here hamfest price is usually at or
    above ebay pricing.

    What, are we libertarians? We are not libertarians yet, and you may
    tell that to your followers.

    Except that I don't. In fact I NEVER junked out ST70s for guitar amps
    because as I have repeatedly said the ST70 transformer is a poor
    choice for that purpose. In fact i've put in other transformers into
    Sunn amps, which used Dyna iron from the factory, specifically because
    of that.

    Also, old ST70s are no longer cost effective for parts use. As I have
    also said.

    I HAVE junked out Scotts and Fishers which were landfill bound
    anyway, for guitar amp use. Again, no longer cost effective.
     

  19. Then your pocket just isn't deep enough to be in there playing the
    game... go elsewhere and whine!
