electronic tubes

were used on RA890 Flame Safeguard Controls from Honeywell and Fireye. From time to time someone here on the wall is looking for them. I would put them aside and help someone out maybe down the road.

    electronic tubes

    I was cleaning out a junk space today and found a box of electronic tubes. There is also the back part of a fireye control with some tubes in it. Should I pitch them or are tey worth something to someone???

    Please don't!

    Throw them out!...some of us ham radio operators restore old transmitters/recievers, as well as musicians who restore tube amps. There is some demand for these. Where are you located?

    Hi Mikey,..

    I thought that is what he was describing, but aren't the tubes in essence a photo cell detecting UV converted to Micro amps?
