This backwater branch of the planetary library is dedicated to my hobby of obsolete electronics - vacuum tubes in particular. Obsolete doesn't mean it doesn't work... ask any guitar player, transmitter operator, or audio nut. The first two pages below are projects and items from my collection, and the next is mostly vintage electronics data and links to more of the same. The last has photos and info on some products made here in Rochester NY.
