||boxes of NOS germanium chips!!!|
I have accesss to thousands of electronics parts from government surplus in storage as far back as the 30's. This includes NOS speakers, transformers, tubes- you name it.
This storehouse includes hundreds of thousands of capacitors, resistors, cloth wiring spools anything you can think of.
My friend a guitar player couldn't believe it when I gave him a handfull of Dakaware switch tips from the 50's for his telecaster.
I understand that the germanium (sp?) chips are no longer made and are in demand for guitar effects. I'm sure I could find baskets of these things. However, I have no idea what they are, If you could give me a detailed description of the part, or a pic, or part numbers, or any information as to halp me locate them, I would gladly dig up as many as I can. I'll mail you one free to verify and test for you help.
I'm a kid in a candy store that doesn't know what the candy is!

Wow, I'm jealous!
Old germaniuums have numbers like 2Sb33, 2sb172, 2SB175, etc. pretty much anything that starts with 2SB is a japanese Germanium [ge],some 2SA as well.
NTE or ECG 101, 102, 158
OC44,AC128,AC122,AC151 AC***[fillin the blank]
there is a high rejection ratio of usable ge trannies
they were 'leaky' [ie, voltage flowing back through from emmitter to collector], by nature, so testing is required to find usable ones. In a salvage situatoin, try to get them for 10 to 25 cents each.
Over 15 cents is high for untested ges in bulk.
If you find any of the above numbers , email me, we should talk.

I'd be very intersted in buying tubes if your selling. Any idea what you've got in the candy store?
Take care, Jered

The ges almost always came in little metal cans, with three leads coming out. A little like a mini aluminum coke can without the graphic.
the'can' is 3/8" long or so, and a little under 1/4" diameter.

or Mullard EL34 tubes you find
