Yes, that's a good source. Has been on the list since the very beginning (see under "Bob Dobush...")

It looks like Richmond Designs has gone belly up: the domain name is for sale.

Just going to throw this tube source out there. Reasonable prices, and quick shipping. Never got a dud from Dave!

Electric Guru Parts House added to the list.

Anyone have an update on Richmond Designs? Website seems to be functional, but link to eBay from that site is broken. Can't tell what the situation is.

All links checked and updated/removed as necessary. Quite a few out of business this time!

Glad to see that his website is functioning again! The EBay link is working now.

Is there any way of finding out what new tubes are currently being manufactured , as of July 2020? Except for China. Thank you.

Henry,

I'd recommend you ask that question in a separate thread. This one is specifically for identifying companies that provide various types of components and supplies needed for antique radio restoration.

Your question is certainly related, but if a discussion on that topic really takes off, the original purpose of this thread will get lost.

A few people have pasted away in the last several months.
Tube Center, ESRC and ABC Tubes, all the same fellow, is gone.
Play Things of the Past is also gone.
There probably are others.

Thanks - I've removed those links. I'll do a check on every single listed vendor here again in the next few days and remove any further ones that no longer work.
