1936 Vibroplex Original Bug with Wedge- $100 plus shipping
Vibroplex Original Bug with a Vibroplex wedge. The serial number is
109660 dating this bug to 1936. This key appears to be complete and
should clean up nicely. Being it has a wedge, this key probably belonged
to a railroad telegrapher.
Dowkey Relay - $65 plus shipping
Clean and working 110 VAC relay with external contacts.
Cold War Miniature Russian Telegraph Key - $45 shipped
Miniature Russian telegraph key of cold war vintage. This appears to be
an NOS key. I picked up a bunch of these back in the 1990's while at the
Friedrichshafen hamfest in Germany.
National NC-80X Receiver - $250 plus shipping.
This is a rare and not often seen NC-80X receiver. This is a ten tube
superhet covering 540 to 30,000 kilocycles in four ranges with a crystal
filter. Uses moving catacomb coil unit similar to the NC-100 series.
This is an ac/dc receiver but still pretty heavy. National offered this
from 1937 to 1938. I recapped this about 12 years ago but never got
around to replacing the electrolytics in the power supply and when I
fired it up a few days ago - major hum! The chassis is dirty but should
clean up nicely. It has been sitting in my dry garage ( I live in
Phoenix) ever since. The escutcheon is not fastened down as I don't
recall how it was supposed to be attached. The light bar is also loose
but I have it. Catacomb coil assembly moves smoothly. The main tuning is
incredibly smooth. Includes a photocopy of the manual. No Trades.
Payment by paypal. I will ship international.
Tnx for looking and 73,
