MX-949A/U Tube Socket Adapter Kit for the I-177
This is a "breakout' box that adds additional tube sockets to the I-177 tester. These can be a bit hard to find, but I stumbled across this one online and bought it. It's dated 1953 and is in good condition except for the ceramic tube socket.
The original paint only has a few minor dings and chips, not enough to justify repainting it. All it really needed to look good was a cleaning.
It's just what I need for the I-177 although there are still some newer tubes that can't or shouldn't be tested on the combo because of the 5-volt grid signal used by the I-177.
There's no electronics inside this unit, just wiring from the tube sockets and octal adapter cable going to the numbered pins and jacks of the front panel.
