Retail tube tester!

This thing looks neat. It's before my time... Looks like a "kiosk" that you walk up to and test your own tubes in a store?

Takes me back to the '60s in my early teens, when I would ride my bicycle down to the shopping center, go behind the TV Sales and Repair shop, dig out of the trash amongst the cigarette butts and coffee grounds all the tubes they would throw away, and then go around the corner to the drug store and test my haul. Probably 9 out of 10 tubes would test "good". Made me suspicious of that shop's business practices.
