[Boatanchors] Lucky Find: Need Some Assistance, Though

I am now the proud owner of about 2000 tubes, maybe more, rescued from certain destruction. The tubes are from the estate of, as far as I can tell, a repair/HAM operator.
Certainly some are for small radios and/or TV's and perhaps may not be of much interest to audio or HAM folks. However, upon digging through some boxes, I am finding 807's, 811's, 6AS7's, and various rectifiers, and other tubes that may be a minor treasure to someone. From what I see nearly all are used but may have some life left in them.
My Seco 107 can't test most of these things, so I will be looking for a tester that can handle 4 and 5-pin tubes, tubes with a top anode connection, etc., so I can check these out.
Now that my Hickok 605A is basically out of commission, do you think we could work something out so I could potentially 'rent' the Hickok you have for sale or figure out a price? I am assuming your Hickok is still available and can test older tubes (such as 45) all the way up to Compactrons (7868).
Let me know your comments. Thanks in advance.
