I really like hearing about the successes of people getting this old 
gear up and running.

I finally finished my "super stout" work bench yesterday, dedicated 
mostly to restoring this gear. Looking forward to sharing some successes 
in the near future.

> Thanks to the folks that responded so quickly.  I went back to do a bit more troubleshooting and found a 60 year old mistake.  The grid of the pentode section of that 6U8 was supposed to have a 220K resistor to ground.  The builder of this one, who did a very good job, put a 2.2K in there instead.  He must have been a CW op only.  Putting in the 220K brought AM to life, even with an 8 meg screen resistor.
