Wanted: UX-245 or 45 tubes

I've aquired an Atwater Kent radio model 70 that had its output tubes stolen between the day that I discovered the radio, and the day I bought it.

What I would like to find is either a nice pair of used, but good, tubes, or 2 weak tubes that I can use for testing after I recap the receiver.

Either style tube is OK with me.

I appreciate you reading this.

Just wishing you luck. Hopefully you'll find a kind person. If not, you might try www.vacuumtubesinc.com Jim Cross has some 45 and UX-245 tubes listed in the $85 each range.

I won an eBay auction a while back for two UX-345's for a total of $251. I'm going to baby them. I probably should have thought about modifying the amplifier to use another type.

You could try Bob Dobush http://www.findatube.com/

He has used ones listed for only $18, but the prices are from 2007.

Huh? Those have never been expensive, I probably have 4 in the garage right now. Was a popular tube back in the day.

The last time I looked at Antique Radio, I think they were around $45 each. I just came from looking there again, and they are $30.

I can remember when they were about $7 or so.

That said, I wasn't going to pay $75 for a pair of used tubes.

The tubes I got are used, but the price was fair. And, the tubes are good.

Ebay has 'em all day long for $15-$20, you're getting ripped.

Yeah, the globe tubes demand a premium price. UX280s are almost as bad.

Antique Electronic Supply is asking $88 for STs.

This guy has a BIN of $299 for 29 weak or bad 245s

I didnt buy any from Antique Radio, either.

I have a few used ones from pulls. Nothing in the collection uses them right now.

Its funny Ive been lucky that the 280's in my sets have both been there and are good. My Brunswick radio has a little "B" etched on the 280 and it checks fine. This A-K 280 is in the same ballpark. In a circuit, things might be different, but have a couple of new 80's from the 1950's just in case.
