Congratulations Kevin!

I buy my stuff from e-pay sellers from Ukraine and Lithuania. They sell from military warehouses, cheap!
Hi Anatoliy,
Usually I get mine from those ePay sellers but rutubes had some pretty compelling deals, so I grabbed them directly from them. Their site is very nice and they have lots of interesting items - of course there was a run on their stock of 4P1L once I mentioned them. Shipping was very quick.. Russian and Eastern block sellers in general seem to be amongst the most honest/ethical in their customer dealings I have ever dealt with - never a problem. Hope it stays that way.

I wonder, how good is adhesion of mirror finish to Lexan: I think about gluing the plastic mirror between hot toobs and transformers, so no bolts would be visible...

Any experience?

Some glues don't like heat. They get brittle and dry and don't hold.

Got my 4p1l's today. Ordered 10 and received an extra one at no cost! They are all Svetlana "winged C".

After WW-II Germans redesigned Telefunken military tubes, and they were produced by Svetlana only. And all of them have "Diamond" stamp, that means military QA accepted, as well as OTK that means Svetlana's own QA accepted them before military QA.

They have these marks. What is in the diamond varies quite a lot. Years are:- 6 of 66, 2 of 78, 1 each of 72,73 and 74. Now I must wait for the sockets and hope they will be O.K.

I have used Clear silicone glue for such applications. Very good adhesion, heat proof and hardly visible, especially if applied on the inner surface only.

I made it removable, on Velcro, in case repair-ability is needed.
