Hello All,

Forgot to mention:  #4 and #5 are used, but very clean.

Best Regards,

Hello All,

First, Happy Thanksgiving to all.  I hope your holiday is fun, relaxing, and enjoyable.  

Cleaning out a closet and came across a selection of UTC variable inductors from an estate/moving sale.  Selling as a batch to avoid a flurry of emails and to keep it simple (for me, anyway).

Here are the descriptions.  Note:  Ratings for #1 thru #3 are from spec sheet or attached labels.  Ratings for #4 and #5 are from http://vintagevacuumaudio.com/vintage-magazines/audio/1955-12-audio.pdf

1.  VI-C17, mean Hys = 13, DC MA max = 4.  This one is NOS in the original wrapping and cute little box.  Includes the original data sheet.

2.  VI-C16, mean Hys = 8.5, DC MA max = 5.  Used

3.  Qty 2, HVC-5, .07 to .7 HY, 1V 1KC ODC, 22 ohm, WV 175PK.  Used as pulled from movie theater sound equipment.

4.  HVC-9, Min HY = 3.0, Mean HY = 10, Max HY = 30

5.  HVC-11, Min HY = 20, Mean HY = 60, Max HY = 200

All have been tested for continuity.  Unfortunately I do not have an accurate way to measure their inductance.

Based what I see on that auction site, these things can go for ~$20 each.  Seems a bit much.

Any interest at $60 for all, including shipping via USPS Small Flat Rate Box?  As it is a holiday, I will wait a day or two and then put them up for auction if no interest.

Best Regards,
