Subject: [AMRadio] FS: Vector Tube Socket Test Adapters, Current and Voltage

For Sale

Test Socket Adapters. The idea with these was to plug the adapter into the
tube socket, then plug the tube into the adapter. The adapter gave you test
points above the chassis for making measurements without removing the radio
from the chassis. Very handy.

Vector T789C Current Probe Test Socket Adapter Set. This set is NOS in the
original plastic box with documentation. It includes 3 adapters--Octal,
9-pin and 7-pin. The current probe and plate cap adapter are also included.
These current probe adapters are less common than the voltage type normally
seen. You can use them to measure voltage at the test points just like with
the normal adapters. But if you look closely at the test point, it is
actually a contact set that breaks the circuit when the included current
probe is inserted between the contact tabs. You connect the ends of the
current probe to your VOM or VTVM and voila, you can now measure current at
any tube pin from above the chassis, without disconnecting any wires--a huge
time saver where current measurements are important for problem solving,
bias adjustments, etc. I also have the Vector current adapters for 9-pin and
12-pin compactrons in like-new condition which I will include. So this is a
 very complete current adapter set, as new. $80 plus $10 US priority flat
rate box mailing with tracking.

Vector T80C Octal Current adapter, like new. $34 including padded envelope

Vector T-7M 7-pin miniature voltage adapter, used but good. $14 including
padded envelope mailing.

CBS/Hytron voltage test adapter set including octal, 7-pin and 9-pin
miniature adapters. Used, in good shape. $34 including padded envelope

Thanks for looking.
