Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: Will be studiously studying your 'tungars' results-nT

I haven't done a direct comparison of the tungar to MV becuase their applications are quite different. The MV tubes typically are high voltage / low current (500V-1000V @a few hundred ma) and the tungars are low voltage high current (300v @ 8A). This puts the mercury in my amps and the tungars in my field coil supplies.

I have tried the 3B28 and the are a drop in replacement to 866's like ripple is a drop in replacement to wine.
