I had no idea that TJ made such a big variety of tubes. (I knew they make a lot of moderately exotic DHTs, but the others shown surprised me.) The carbon plate KT88 looks pretty interesting.

Very interesting. I couldn't help noticing that very early production (square corners) Tektronix 570 curve tracer. And those custom made test stations reminds me of the long gone JFF Research in Nutley New Jersey where testing was done for most of the surplus dealers.
