    Sorry for the crummy photos. I need to get a better camera - anything that's shiny seems to drive it nuts.

    1.Vibrokeyer ca. 1974, S/N 37667. The key is in good condition, and will work fine as-is, but it needs a thorough cleaning. There are some nicks on the base, and the brass label is starting to lift at the S/N corner.

    The chrome is mostly in good shape, but needs to be polished. There is a bit of pitting on the horizontal surfaces of the feet of the main frame.

    I replaced the thumb piece with a new part from Vibroplex, but it is a slightly darker red than the knob - and I don't think is made of as nice a plastic as the knob - but it works fine.

    I'll remove the thumb and finger pieces, and will make sure the movement can't beat itself up during shipping.

    $100.00, including USA shipping, and I will consider a reasonable offer.

    2. "The Tube Guys", by Norman H. Pond. I sold one of these a couple of weeks ago. I bought one for my dad as a gift, and one for me. I just found a second one when I went through more of dad's books, so I guess he was too polite to tell me he already had one!

    It's a neat book; a history of the vacuum tube, the different technologies, and the companies that sold them. The emphasis is on microwave tubes. Here is a link to

    $30.00, including USA media Mail shipping.

    3. RSGB/ARRL "International Microwave Handbook", 2nd edition, copyright 2008. Very good condition. ARRL new price is $29.95. $22.00/OBO, shipped.

    Payment by PayPal. Please contact me by email at: ("mycall" at arrl dot net). or by PM here.

    Thanks. 73, Jim KO5V

    The books have been sold.

    Due to the underwhelming response, the Vibrokeyer's price has been lowered again to $80.00, including USA shipping. Thanks.
