Heathkit TX-1, the "Apache"
This one was sitting on the floor at my place for at least ten years.
No cabinet, no knobs, no tubes.
Well this weekend I found a set of black knurled old fashioned knobs. Took some grinding to make them all fit the rather short shafts but they are on.
Then dug through boxes of tubes and found a complete set, even those EL34's that I have no idea where I got those.
So next weekend it needs a power cord. If I can get any RF out of it I'll remove the front panel and fix the rotary frequency display that must have died 30 years ago.
They will rise again. Every old boat anchor will find a home.
