I still need a 1500T to complete my collection.
I have every one from the 15E to the 2000T but not the 1500T.

Largest tube in collection is a 3CV200,000A7
But has grid short. 
If copper keeps going up may scrap it. It is worth more
in just copper than as a core for rebuild.

I think I've mentioned, my first high power amp was a 6C21.  I saw a
pair of them running PP to a *vertical* tuned line on 6-meters. Now that
was impressive.

A LOT shorter <:-))

That's a problem when you don't have any floor space for racks.
As my wife says...I suffer from TMS or Too Much... ahhhh... Stuff!
I think that was mentioned a few weeks back when the paramedics were
trying to roll me down the aisle in front of the work bench.  They
totaled my office chair.  At least they didn't break anything important.
