10. Damage From Improper Settings
I m p r o p e r setting of the FILAMENT RANGE switch (fig. 3) or
incorrect operation of the PRESS TO TEST switches may damage
the tube under test. Be sure that all the controls and switches are
set properly before inserting the tube in the socket.

Seven SELECTORS switches:
Turning each of the filament switches to
FIL- and FIL+ 12-position
one of positions 1 to 9 connects fila-

bered base pin of tube under test. (0
is no connection.)
Turning the switches to position A or B
connects filament voltage to A or B
electrical clip, respectively.
GRID (12-position rotary switch) - When set to one of positions 1 to 9, con-
nects grid bias and signal voltage to
correspondingly numbered base pin of
tube under test. (0 is no connection.)
In A or B, connects grid bias and
signal voltage to A or B electrical clip.
