About 250-300mA.

Depends what you mean by "maximum"...

In anything you would describe as "normal" operation, the maximum would 
be about 350mA. If it's significantly higher than that, then either 
loading is too light, the drivel level is too high and/or the anode 
voltage is too low.

In the Triode Board manual I recommended 400mA as a suitable full-scale 
meter reading, and also a suitable level for the grid current trip, 
because that is into the region where most people would not want to go.
