Andrew, when did you start using 1R0? Isn't that a tad low? I used a 0.1% 100 ohm resistor and that seems to work quite nicely. Perhaps 100 ohms doesn't give quite enough resolution though for really close matching, a 10 ohm resistor would allow me to use the 200mV range on the multimeter rather than the 2V range... I assume this is the reason for going with such a low resistor value? Or is it because you can just use the reading without needing to divide by the resistance?

Tony.
I agree.

You do need at least 10R0 to get full resolution on most meters.

My initial measurements were taken with only the shunt of the meter as a load.

Before I go tearing into my supplier.

I've just been looking at the datasheet for the 2SK170.

The parameters are quoted at Vds=10V Vgs=0V and Idss=3mA.

That's not too far from what I am seeing.

Dalbani are being helpful. They are just as stunned as we are that they are being conned.

My original SwapMeet post for 0-15 0-15 Toroidal has been amended. Apparently, these rescued transformers are 60VA and not 50VA as originally suspected.

THere are different grades of fets. If you were sold BL fets, that is low. EVen if you were sld GR grade, I think that is still low.

For those that can use them: I just found a bag with a quantity of original 2SK170. I used them for finding matched pairs for 3 pieces DCB1 and they were left. make me an offer if you want them. Their Idss range from 7.XX to 10.xx mA.

That is about minimum transconductance expected. 22 milliSiemens is the low side GR(een) grade's bottom Yfs. Anything marked BL(ue) shall vary between 6-12mA IDSS @ 10V VDS with a midway Yfs of 37mS. Else its a bad or fake sample.

Check IDSS with this direct method again: http://www.diamondstar.de/transistor_matching_jfet.html
Show us a good macro picture of the JFETS there:
My Transistors, original or copy?
