    I am now rigged with a Hickok 6000 and 6000A.

    I've gone through the calibration steps and verified operation.

    I also have an Eico 666 and HK TC-2

    FWIW, I am rigged with Variacs also, so if you find something that needs to be resurrected, I have that too.

    I've been using a Transcendent Sound tube tester that I built from a kit about ten years ago. It's been very reliable and versatile.

    Over the last twenty years I've purchased tubes from most of the vendors listed in this thread. I've had good experiences with one exception: Upscale Audio. Terrible service. They claim superior testing but much of what I've received from them doesn't indicate that. I think their major strength is marketing. There are many other good tube vendors out there. No need to buy from Upscale Audio.

    San Mateo Electronics, in the SF Peninsula has a couple of old but nice RCA testers and a Sencore behind the counter if you ask nicely.

    Willing to help other hobbyists, especially if it suits my interests . Not very interested in late model equipment with circuit boards, but contact me if you've exhausted all other resources, I can probably get it going.

    Hickok TV7A-U tube tester and a 5A variac, plus a scope, signal generator, LCR meter and such. Have done occasional tube amp and preamp builds, mods and restorations for various AK members over the years as well.

    I also have an Eico 625 tester, but it's not been restored or re- calibrated.

    Located in Marietta GA.

    Regards,
    Gordon.

    I'm looking for a schematic for a Tsakiridis Achilles 2A3, I received this pair of amps for repair but nothing is original anymore. Original it has: 2A3, 6SL7, 6L6, but is now equipped with 2A3 and 2 6SL7's in parallel (????).
    6L6 is gone but I suspect it was used for B+ stabilization.
    Some detailed pictures of the internals would help as well.

    Regards,

    Michel
