Re: getting "sag" with resistors
what I meant by "strength" is that the PT puts out 150mA- more than plenty for a 5E3 circuit. I do have 3A on the rectifier. but I had always thought that tubes like 5U4 and 5AR4 had less drop and that a 5Y3 would be the "saggiest".  
I did have pretty good luck mounting a 220 ohm resistor on the rectifier tube socket in series with the B+. It gets pretty warm, but its still alive.
