This item was custom made for a former manufacturer of large broadcast amplifiers, and is used to safely remove large coaxial base (circular base) metal / ceramic transmitting tubes from their expensive finger-stock sockets without damaging the delicate copper fingers. It is usable on many of the larger coaxial based, air cooled metal ceramic transmitting tubes which have handles to aid in removal.

The puller's handle engagement arms are 7.25 inches wide nominal, and are hinged to allow engagement of slightly larger or smaller diameters to fit tubes such as the 10,000 and 15,000 series nicely, and with some minor modification could be used with many of the 20,000 and even 35,000 series tubes. The puller allows smooth, perfectly vertical removal of the tube without having to "rock" the tube side-to-side, risking socket damage.

Made of aluminum, brass, and stainless components, with one steel screw which shows some rust. Perfectly functional.

Condition : Used, with light shelf storage wear
