Default Max power output chart for SE and PP

I am reposting this because the previous heading does not indicate the real subject.

Is there any chart on the web that lists out the maximum power available in SE and PP mode from the following tubes.

EL84 - SE ~6w, PP up to 17w within ratings (AB1)

6L6 - ~10W tops in SE, and then up to about 60w in PP (for 6L6GC.. i think only about 35w with 20w versions.)

EL34 should be kinda similar to 6L6.. similar class of tube

2A3 is something like 3...4w in SE

EL34 can go up to 100W in class B with 800V on the plates...
You're more likely to find it around 5W SE or 30 to 50W PP.

As I recall, 2A3 is around 5W, 300B 8...

Of course, no tube is really limited. Depending on how short the test is, you could go with a dirty class C PP amp with some pretty damn severe drive, voltage and current levels, and push say 5 or 10 times as much power from any of them...
