Lew McCoy Ultimate Transmatch. This is a faithful copy
of the original QST article. Good for about 100 watts.
Very well made. $25

Homebrew Tuner. Pi-net. This is a very well-made
homebrew tuner probably good for 100-200 watts. Input
and Output caps plus a ceramic switch selecting
various coil taps on a large B&W coil stock coil.
Important connections made with copper strap. Built to
last. Missing the knobs but I can probably come up
with some if you need them. $25

12-15 acorn tubes. These are NOSB 954’s and 955’s,
mostly in RCA original boxes but a couple of them are
in plain JAN boxes. $14/all

Isolation transformer. This has a 2-wire cord and a
2-wire socket mounted on the case. A slide switch
selects 105-115-125V output. Brand name decal on top
is not readable but it is a model IS-50 which suggests
maybe 50 watts to me because that fits with its size.

Condenser Products Co. Hivolt Power Supply Model PS-5.
Input 118VAC 60 cycles. Output 5KVDC @ 2ma. This is a
sealed steel box 7 inches high, 4 wide and 4 deep with
terminals on top for input and standoffs for output.
The original use was likely a neon sign? But maybe
this could be used for Hipot testing? $9
