Thank you for your prompt reply!
I found the lamps on the schematic and ordered some.
Once these are installed, the curve tracer should be back in working order. I found three paper caps that were bad and replaced them.
Speaking of radiation- I have a EG&G KN-2 tube that has Ni-63. It is a radioactive isotope of nickel, half life of 101 years, emits beta particles (when functioning). It was used for triggering a laser.
I'm retired from Sandia National Laboratories after 30+ years, don't glow at night, and haven't suffered any ill effects (yet) from soldering with Sn/Pb solder.
Thanks again for the info.

They appear to be NE-23's.... Eg: NE2's + Radioactive gas (that's no
longer radioactive by now) :-)
I'd probably just go with bog standard A1A's, as I don't believe
they're particularly critical (though I did not look).
But if you want a little more radiation in your life, and be more
correct I gather they're called 5AB's now.
(No, I don't think there's any radiation danger, though I don't
recommend huffing a 5AB... :-P )
