For Sale: Tube Electronics and Related Stuff. All
prices plus shipping.

David Bogen DB15 tube audio amplifier. The “David
Bogen” brand name was Bogen’s mono Hi-Fi line and this
amp should not be confused with a PA amplifier--it was
designed for hi-fi home use. These were made for
custom installation and this one has been installed
into a classy light colored wood table-top
cabinet--not a home brew job. The cabinet is very
nice. The front panel of the amplifier is excellent.
And the bezel around it would be too but it has one 1
inch by 1/2 inch chip out of it. Untested but in very
good physical condition, with tubes (12AT7, 12AT7,
12AX7, 5Y3, 6L6, 6L6).  Has some dirt and could use a
cleaning but there’s no rust or other ugly surprises.

David Bogen Model R640 (W25) matching AM/FM tuner for
the amplifier above. This is in a cabinet identical to
the one the amplifier is in with nice light wood and a
matching light wood bezel. Uses miniature tubes. Has
plug in the back for the amplifier (or maybe a
turntable?). Nice physical condition in every respect.
Needs a good cleaning. $39

C-30/ARC-5 control box. This is the push-button
control box that I think went with the VHF ARC-5 sets.
This one has a serious case of ugly with the paint
flaking off all over. So it will need repainted to
look good. $29 plus $8.50 flat rate box with tracking.

Pearce-Simpson “Gladding 25” 6-channel,
xtal-controlled 2 meter FM transceiver. Old, funky 2M
FM with crystals in 5 channels. Runs on 12VDC. With
mic and manual photocopy and power connector (Cinch
6-pin type). Notes taped to the top indicate that it
is working but one channel is out --D. Untested and
as-is. $29

Drake 2-BQ cabinet only. Someone cannibalized a Drake
2BQ and started to build something in it, then set it
aside--in water. So this is just the cabinet--no panel
or rear cover. And one side of the cabinet is rusty.
The other 3 sides are okay. 3 of the 4 rubber feet are
missing. Free--just in case anyone has a chassis
without a cabinet.

Cincinnati MD-5. Strange little blue hammertone box 3
inches high 10 inches wide and 7 inches deep. The
front panel has a 0-25VDC meter on the upper left. A
group of 3 ceramic rotary switches to right of the
meter are collectively labeled LOOP TUNING, with the 3
individual switches marked COARSE  MEDIUM  FINE. These
switches select varying amounts of capacitance,
obviously for some resonant circuit. The last control
on the upper right is a red, momentary contact push
button marked S  M  L. Below this push button is a
male 11-pin, octal-style plug, unmarked. There’s also
a screwdriver-adjust pot marked SENS. Two holes where
something has been removed are marked  TUNE IND  and
CAP. DIS. The AC line cord also comes out the front.
Inside is what appears to be a sophisticated
transistorized transmitter? Receiver? Both? With a big
relay and a big 100.000kc xtal in a holder. 10
transistors are visible, all socketed. A tag on the
front says Model No. LECZ, Serial No. R1804, Freq. K.
C. 100.  Add all that up and I don’t know what the
heck you have. But you can have this one for $10 plus
$8.50 flat rate box mailing.

Gray wrinkle paint shows some age but otherwise

Simpson 260 Series 6 VOM. Dirty but working well.
Batteries are starting to corrode and need changed.

mailing with tracking.

Simpson 260 original VOM. This is the original model
with no series number and pin jacks for connections.
Production date is 12/29/60. Has Simpson service tag
inside dated 1964. Good shape with no cracks. I
removed corroded batteries from inside this meter but
the corrosion is confined to several of the battery
terminals and will clean up easily (a teaspoon of
boiling water to the affected area (boiling--not just
hot), blow dry, clean connections and Deoxit spray
them, add new batteries and you should be good to go).
You may also want to change out that black beauty cap
in there while you’re at it. With original manual that
is correct for this version of the 260. $11.50 plus
$8.50 flat rate box mailing with tracking.

rate box mailing with tracking.

one out of 2 bad ones? $4.50 plus $8.50 flat rate box
mailing with tracking.

Thanks for looking.
