This 6000 series is a Mutual Conductance tester equipped with a removable (without disassembly), interchangeable socket island. With both socket islands, the 6000 series will test all tubes designed from the early 1920's on. This version has the island for testing; octal, loctal, 7, 9 & 10 pin miniature, novar, duodecar (compactron), & nuvistor bases. The old large pin tubes from the 20's, 30's, can be tested with the alternate plug-in island for the older large pin sockets. The socket island is removable and can be interchanged with one that will accept the older tubes if wanted. These are often available on eBay. As an additional option, I have created an accessory adaptor (modified from an old test adaptor) for testing the early large pin tubes, see it > HERE.

I have serviced an calibrated the above instrument and all works perfectly. The roll chart is dated "Spring 1969" and rolls smoothly from one end to the other. The original operation manual (with schematic and parts list) plus supplemental & obsolete & foreign tube test data books are included.

The panel and insides are in like new condition, meter works smooth (no sticking). The case  suffers quite a few blems, nicks and wear. It was much worst looking before I did a bit of touch up repairs and re-gluing some of the fabric back in place. I include more than the usual photos of the case so you won't be mis-lead.

Here's a partial list of the service done
