Tube Socket

Much of the recent work on TX 7 has been to the tube socket and related parts.   As mentioned in the previous blog, some ceramic insulators had to be replaced.  We were able to fabricate them right here.

The air nozzle below the tube socket had to be replaced as well.  This was also fabricated right here.

With all the parts refurbished and replaced, the tube socket was completed and put together.

And finally... the installation of the power tube!
