    I am in the market for a quality tube tester. Can someone give me the
    rundown on the Hickoks? 600, 600A, 605, 6000? What are the ins and
    outs of these?

    TIA

  2. Hi John,

    Any tube tester that is a Mutual Conductance style will be just fine for
    you. There are a number available on eBay, currently that are just as
    good as a Hickock. I have a Jackson MC style that we've been using to
    test our jukebox and old TV tubes in our shop for twenty years now...and
    it works very well.

    Hi John,

    Thanks. I meant to post this over on rec.antiques.radio+phono as I
    will use it for antique radio tubes. That is why I am interested in
    an old tester, for setting data and sockets.

  4. Most Mutual Conductance tube testers will have a "Seldom Used Tubes"
    list. This goes back to 201As, 80s, 47s, etc, and a few other earlier
    tubes...I have a chart for my unit - should scan the sucker and post it
    somewhere...TTL?
