    It doesn't look near as imposing with all the iron out of it!

    The only 1G I had was a junker.

    A fire in the main wire loom made a real mess, as it happened at a remote control site and no one was around to open the breakers.

    Not a bad deal for good iron @ $200 local.

    Well, looks like it suffered one slight bit of damage. Where do I need to look for two of these? The top and bottom one cracked.

    I've got those.

    Send me the measurements and I'll mail you some.

    Whatever you do with a 1G, at least hang onto one of the cabinet skins, the one that's straight sheet metal with no vents. With the re-enforcing on the inside, they make a pretty good ramp for unloading 1 KW iron if you're working alone and your name isn't Charles Atlas. Get a piece of carpet for sliding down the smooth side and anchor the ramp end on the pavement so it doesn't skoot up or away. unloading_ramp - 1.jpeg Throw the carpet patch carpet side down on the tail gate and teeter the iron on to it and up on the ramp edge, then tip it over the top and slide it down. Then work it onto a dolly. Keep your toes out from under the ramp to be on the safe side.

    Which measurements do you need, length and diameter?

    Length and thread size; it will be either 10-32 or 1/4-20.

    More Gates: Driver for sale; 810s driven by 813. Seller says it's from BC5 or 10. I'm guessing give it 5 watts on the grid of the 813 and you have 250 watt rig. You need to add h.v. supply, input and output networks and modulator.

    For some reason my reply weeks ago never sent. I didn't notice until now. They are 1/4-20

    And it is hard to tell because of the way they broke, but it looks like they are 2¾" long.
