Default Looking for Western Electric components

Hello,

I am currently restoring a vintage western electric amplifier (46c type)

I am looking some spare parts to restore it properly, as it should be (picture of same parts) :

- vintage tar filled square WE condenser, reference 21CB 1uF ( 21CB are supposed to be isolated 600VDC at least...)

- vintage Western electric 131A tube socket, 4 pins, cushion mount (has springs inside)

Would you have some of them or know where I can find some ?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Best regards

Julien

Quoted from post (no affiliation):


I am offering (4) NOS/unused W.E. oil filled capacitors. 1 uF @ 1000+V.
Very hard to find!

These would be great for a power supply or custom amplifier project.

$55/pr. plus shipping or $100 for all (4) plus shipping.
m/o or check please.

Really, chances of finding those exact parts is very slim!

If he won't ship overseas, ship to me and I will forward or bring to ETF.

Hi,

Thanks to everyone for help in this research.
I have a contact with seller, who accept to ship overseas.
So, I won't need your help, Joe... at least this time. Thank you so much for this anyway...

Best from Paris.

Julien
