That Jackson 648A certainly was used extensively with the socket updates. Sad the old 7 pin socket was removed for the Nuvistor.

Ive owned my 648A since I was in the 7th grade. I begged my grandfather to buy it for me at a TV shop which was having a garage sale :D
Soon after i got it, I installed a 12 pin Compactron in the same location, though I put the "NOR-S" switch in a different location.

Still have it, still use it. :wink:

Jeff, you need to get yourself a Pup. Makes the Sears 1 tube Crosley look like a boatanchor. :)

The Jackson is a great find. I really like mine, just gotta figure out why it's acting a bit funky lately. Just as impressive to me is the Hazel Scott record. She is quite the piano player. Check out some of her videos on Youtube, especially the one where she plays two different pianos at the same time, one with each hand.

Some nice finds out there! Steve, that Visionola is very rare; it's amazing that one was found "in the wild".

I haven't been buying much lately; I have a HUGE backlog of projects, some to finish, and some that aren't even started yet.

Lot's of room in your Crosley compared to my Sears SR-2, Jeff.

Ha! Good one, Dan. I had to call it a console since there are so many beautiful consoles this month.

Too expensive and for some reason the Pup doesn’t appeal to me at all.

Pup prices have come down some lately from the days they sold for $450 for one in excellent condition.

Not being critical here but just curious as to how you got the quote attributed to the wrong person. That was my comment, not mrlee's. Just wondering how that can happen.

I agree, but I picked one up at a reasonable price when prices dropped in mid 2020. Somewhere around $100. The government was sending out radio collecting assistance payments then, too. BTW, Dan, I'm a bit envious of your Sears SR-2.

Larry, there's nothing magic about a quote of someone else's post. When you hit the Quote button, you can see the previous person's post as part of your post. Each quote starts with a tag that looks like [quote] and ends with a tag that looks like [/quote]. The quoted text goes in between the two tags.

(I have checked the box down below that says "Disable BBCode", so that the tags don't get interpreted, and you can see them.)

When you begin a quote of someone's post there is another style of start quote tag. It looks like [quote="UserID"]. The forum software automatically fills in the person's screen name (UserID). But in your post, it's just text... You can edit it.

Nested quotes look like this: [quote="SecondUser"]And what he said was: [quote="FirstUser"]I never even got to see the menu![/quote] I was laughing so hard I almost fell off my chair![/quote]

The start and end tags have to match up (one end tag for each start tag), or the forum software won't interpret them correctly.

The most common way I've seen that quotes get mis-attributed, is that the quote level gets 3 or 4 deep, and then a responder tries to edit the string of quotations, but gets the start and end tags mixed up for who said what.

Ok, this time, I'm not going to check the "Disable BBCode" box down below. The quotes will show up with the normal formatting.

SecondUser wrote:

FirstUser wrote:

I could have given FirstUser and SecondUser different names, simply by editing the start tags while writing my post. For instance, I'll put your name and my name in there:

You can examine the difference between the 2 sets of nested quotes by simply hitting the Quote button, and looking at how the tags in my post get copied into your post.

Carelessness when editing.

It certainly wasn't intentional.

I got misquoted or unquoted in another thread a few days ago. It happens.

Just try hitting the quote button for that particular posting. Above is what it should look like. mrlee's quote is boxed inside of mine, not the other way around with my words quoted inside his box. See the difference?

NONB, I know it wasn't intentional, just curious as to how, no problem. :D

Yup, if you don't change the quote, that's how it would look. But if you start editing the quote to show just the part you're replying to, then anything is possible. For instance, deleting a block of text along with a start quote tag at the end of it, is a sure-fire way to get misattributions.

Had a good day Sat with a couple Airline Teledial estate finds, both worthy projects. Also brought home an Airline 62-318 Movie Dial table set and a bunch of smaller table models so all in all I was flying high in spite of a 180 mi RT.

Steve,
Nice find on the movie dial. They are one of my favorites. I have a couple patiently waiting to be repaired.

I like that 62-297, Steve. I haven't seen one of those before!

Thanks Henry, wow you have 2 Movie Dials waiting for repairs...as hard to find as they are becoming, that's a great problem to have!

Thanks Rodney, glad you like the 62-297. It looks fairly compact in a picture, but it's surprisingly large & hefty: 21"W x 12"H x 10.5"D, 25 lbs.
