Here is the full set, at the rez that the site will allow. Anyone needing higher resolution, I will post them up on my website and submit them to BAMA eventually, along with David Holland's excellent work converting them to very high quality PDF's and a few other goodies.

The test card set is up on BAMA for the world now. Thanks to David Holland for the conversions.

http://bama.edebris.com/download/hickok ... ll_Set.pdf

THey are asking if this is the proper name for the files since the manual isn't there. I thought it was but maybe under another name. Any thoughts on what model numbers to put with it? KS-15874-L2, or the Hickok number? The mil number?

“Now if we only had a set for the RCA W110 card tube tester “

What do you need for RCA W110 card tube tester?

The WT110 has only one test Card.

The punch data for test card part # B-904116-3 is: B2, D1, E2, G1, J1, K7.

Plus just the Cards for tubes: 1B3-GT, 5V4-G, 6AL5, 6BQ6-GTB/6CU6 and 12AD6.
Plus it helps to have a Master Punched Card. A Master Punched Card has all of the holes punched
to help you make new cards.

http://bama.edebris.com/manuals/rca/wt110a/

The files are listed as WT100 but for the WT110.

I am looking for blank cards and I am also on the lookout for the card punch. Very Hard to find one for sale.

and yes I have the Master card.

I am thinking about a database for the Tube matrix(s). That will be difficult as the chart is in graphic form rather than text. Otherwise it will take a lot of entries by hand. :(
---------------------
The RCA WT100 is the cats meow for testing analog and digital meters. Lots of Dials to fiddle with.
Very Unobtainum :(

You could PM David Holland. He may have it in other formats. He did the JPEG to PDF and other conversions. I just did the scans to JPEG

The two CSV's in this thread have the hole positions in "text" format... but I don't think the 123 cards are applicable for the WT100...

If someone has a set of cards, and wants to scan them, I can make my scripts available. You'll have to pardon me if I don't want to use them for a tester I don't own. It may be easier than trying to type in the coordinates from the manual on BAMA.

I'll warn, they're kinda *fugly*... (Linux based, use ImageMagick, Fred's "maxima" script, and some Perl scripting of my own (which would likely need modified...))
Even after it all, there's some manual "card identification & verification" steps...

I looked at the BAMA manual, I don't think they'd OCR with sufficient reliability for these purposes... (Feel free to prove me wrong. :-) )

Anyways, the offer of my scripts stands if someone wants to try their hand at adapting them...

David

Once again thank you both dholland and Barry H Bennett for getting these up on the web. Is there any chance of getting the entire tube card set up? If not the entire set since its 1000+ cards, maybe some of the more common tubes?

Thanks,

Will

There's a pile of some 500 PDF conversions I made from "Old Radio Fixer Upper Guy's" scans linked off some of my MediaFire space earlier in this thread... Its too big to post here...

viewtopic.php?p=3028958#p3028958
viewtopic.php?p=3029804#p3029804
http://www.mediafire.com/file/so87oe69a ... s.zip/file

There's a couple of questionable scan conversions in there, usually marked by a question mark, but otherwise, it may have what you're looking for...

I'd be willing to let someone come to Ohio and digitize the suitcase full here... I'm not going to have the time anytime soon and won't ship them out for that.
