Hi Guys. A friend of mine gave me this tube a while back and I have no idea what it is or if it's useful. All I know is that it was being dumped from a university in South Australia so my mate grabbed it and passed it on. Any ideas?
I'm sure Miles is right. The thin wire wrapped around the glass helix is a flash trigger electrode. The photo brings back old memories. I used to play around with these devices as a teenager back in the sixties.
