F/S: Good 10BP4

It's my auction, so shameless forum plug.

Bid on it, it's no reserve and I hope someone here wins it!

I noticed that you chopped up one of the adapters on your 466. I've found that I can test any tube with the same base as the 10BP4 on my 466 without using an adapter. You may want to try this some time. Have you ever tried the rejuvinator feature on the 466? If so how good do you think it works compared to other testers you've used?

I'm just gonna get some clips, and make my own UA like the Sencores have. Rejuve works pretty well on the light setting, but it can throw some sparks on rejuve #2 if you aren't careful. It even has this 'Super' function, but I'm too scared to try it...

I tried both 1 and 2 on the admiral and got the green from the bottom of the ? zone to the middle of the good zone, and the red came from the bad to the ? zone and then back to the bad again(though mildly better than the original reeding). I finally gave in and poped a brightener on redid setup and now have a good picture that I can watch durring the day.

As Electronic M said, the 466's cable with no adapter is made to plug right onto the early B&W CRTs; there is no original "adapter" for that base. I do not blame you for avoiding the "Super Rejuvenate" function with the push-to-shoot button, though I do use that method on CRTs at work here. Recently, I "shot" two of a same-type CRT (commercial 23" B&W). One came right up with one hit and still looks good after a month or so of 24-hour-a-day operation. The other needed several shots but looked good afterward, however it died again within a few days.

I use that same tester. A UA is a good idea. My problem is that my tester came from the local tech school, so that main connector is about shot. The way that plug was molded, there does not seem to be any room around the socket pins for re-tensioning.

Good luck with your auction.

So the button is only for the super rejuvinate? If so is it bad that I pushed it in the 1 & 2 rejuv positions? I never read the rejuv section of the manual, and have been missing the manual since before trying the rejuve on the admiral.

The button is used in all 3 rejuvenate modes. I think what Chris was saying, is that the rejuv button is a manual operation; the circuit does not produce a predetermined pulse. Your finger is the timer.

I figured that is how it worked, but my instruction manual has been MIA for a while now and it is easy to doubt ones method when the method is based on a hunch.

Thanks! I know that the manual is puttering around somewhere, but having the digital copy is nice, and I was able to find new info on my 466 CRT tester as well as my 606 signal tube tester. So I'm a happy camper now!

I've never had much luck rejuving a tube with the 466, it pretty much just blasts the crud off the cathode, how much of a blast is determined by the setting 1, 2 or 3.

I don't think I've had a tube hold up long after though.

Actually, since only the "Super" position has a line pointing to the button, I never used it with the other positions but rather, I figured 1 and 2 were just "rejuvenate by boosting the filament" options. No wonder they never did anything for the typical really-bad CRTs I have worked on. I should have used the button.

Yep, you don't get a zap till you hit the button.
