    Western Electric 417a NOS
    Any use in anything today like an audio amp?
    Looked on one site and they were going for over 100 bucks
    each NOS.

    I have a dozen or so NOS, maybe Ebay them eh?
     
  2. If you asked where this belongs, sci.electronics.components, you'd
    be getting an answer.

    I know some tube heads here that's why I asked. And besides, I don't know
    every sci.electronics.* group in the hierarchy.

    It's amazing how you can post useful and helpful stuff on a group for years,
    and be a regular poster for anyone who cares to take the time to look at
    exactly who the post is from, and then get jumped on by the group stasi for
    making a post aimed at others that you know will be on there, but that
    *they* consider to be slightly off topic ...

    Yeh Mike has appointed himself as the group nanny I suppose. This group
    has a very wide range of known and lurking subscribers so an electronic
    item like a tube wasn't that far off topic.

    And, of course, the primary name of the group is "electronics", "repair"
    being a secondary qualifier. As far as I'm concerned, anything of an
    electronics nature, is fair game, provided that it is not too far off topic.
    As you say, there is a very large range of expertise and interest on this
    group, and it is a particularly active one, which is why I like it so much.
    The tubes in question just might have had some repair interest for someone
    on the group, and it's not as if it was some unknown person who was making
    the post.

    This group is not too bad overall, some of the others I'm on, the majority
    of the traffic is completely off topic bickering. A few other groups I've
    left entirely after contributing a fair bit and then realizing there was
    *nobody* contributing anything I could use, just bitching about other
    members.

    And, so, we now have this originally OT thread devolving into a bitch
    thread about other threads on bitching *IN OTHER NG's".

    Geeeezzzz!

    Such is the nature of usenet. Why start a new thread when there`s
    already a perfectly good one to hijack?
