Those things are really pretty cool. I think they are around 100
ohms cold and about 1 ohm hot at up to 3 amps. They are great for the
primary of filament XFMRs for Xmitting tubes. I used to use them all the
time. We kept them in stock for the degaussing circuits in TV repair but I
haven't seen them for a long time.

George: You might search around for some old "Globar" resistors. Install
on the input line and they will absorb some of that inrush resulting in
longer life for the tubes.
I found a card of them (they were in little packets that one pulled off like
the pull tabs you bought at the beer joint) in little bags. They were used
in TV sets and AC/DC radios. Check for a parts store that has been in
business for a long time and find the guy with gray hair and an unsteady
walk. He will know what you are talking about.
