Default 1AX7

Another tube I've recently come across is the 1AX7 (not to be confused with the 12AX7, the very popular 9 pin dual triode). I remember for some reason believing this tube is a diode of some sort, but I'm not sure. I'm going to find the box with this tube to double check the cartons for misprints; just in case. I checked all over the internet and can not find a data sheet for a 1AX7. It's almost as if this thing doesn't exist, yet I have a carton full of them. Any one who can shed some light on this?
Thanks.

Could it be a 14X7?

Give us a few more clues. How many pins? What type of base? Plate cap?

If it is a small 9 pin tube with a plate cap, my guess is a 1AX2. The 1AX2 was a high voltage rectifier used in black and white TV sets in the late 40's and 50's. Not much use for them today.

ah, 1AX2. that is what it is. These cartons are sometimes hard to read after they have set in someone's attic with silverfish munching on them. Appreciate the help guys.
