    Lots of things unique about Mr. Rice's VFO that Millen produced. Not the least of which is the mechanical design. I've had mine since my novice days in the late 70s. I recapped it last year. I was sad to do it because the factory wiring and soldering were absolutely beautiful. I gave it my very best and I think I did a credible repair. But the original constructors did a marvelous job.

    Mine still has the original "curtain burner" power cord with resistance built in to power the series-string tube heaters. That thing gives me the willies! That is the only reason I don't use this VFO very often. It is slated for replacement soon. I have a nice metal box that will house a cement replacement resistor and will route the 3 wires to the VFO - Hot, hot with series resistance, and neutral.

    That old VFO works very well, indeed.

    Sorry, I seem to have hijacked this thread!! I will mute now ...
