8608


Michael Dunn <mdunn@...>
 

Yoohoo. I got a pair of NOS, Tek-boxed 8608 tubes for the vertical of my 556! They work great. Has anyone else had an 8608 fail on them. My bad one had a grid short. I noticed it because the vertical position knob acted like a light dimmer, making the tube glow incandescent white depending on the setting!!!

Hello, since you have a 556 you may be the one to know, i just picked
up for cheap a 556 that looked good, but when i got it home it looks
as if a rodent has eaten a lot of the wires and insulation on the
inside. Is this scope worth the effort to repair or maybe i should
use it for parts. I have a manual and all the parts are there, the
case looks good and is straight. I have a 545a and a 453 that i use
but i have not used a 556.

Well, if you have the room, it's quite the scope, don't you think? ;-) On the other hand, I would buy the manual from you!
