1296 100W 2C39 Cavity

I got my hands on a cavity and 4 tubes. One of those round-to-it projects where a round-to-it was never found.

I could not put it in to storage until I confronted the main issue.
No cathode / heater socket / plug / mounting hardware.

Head first into the junk box and several hours of cutting, etching, fiddling, etc. etc and the challenge is solved.
Once I have the power supply built I can revisit the project and find the teflon sheet, glass trimmers and other odds and sods.

Top: The cathode and heater socket / plug assembly.

Middle: The tube chamber, 1KV BNC and N Type link coupling.

Bottom: Boxed up ready for storage
