Thanks for the tips.  I have a trip to the hardware store in my future. 
   My GDO lives again.  I also feel better about my knight-kit tube 
tester that has a place of honor on the shelf in my shop.  It called the 
tube as shorted and way low on emission when I tested the 6af4a (made by 
RCA for Eico....those were the days HI.)
