    Tube caddys are cool but I think they're a bit hopeful on that price. Most of those tubes are TV types and not all that many people are fooling with tv sets. The tubes tend to be pretty available and cheap from various vendors. There are a couple of sweep tubes in there that go for money, mostly because they all got roasted in CB linears in the 70s and 80s but most other tv types are a couple bucks per.

    some of those tv tubes are becoming vaguely popular in the tube audio amp DIY community specifically because they are cheap. Its a high power, low cost tube that can be used to make a fine amplifier without spending 50 bucks or more on an equivalent audio tube.

    That is cool. I have tubes here but they are all guitar amp tubes. 6v6 power tubes and other preamp tubes.
    I do remember having tube TVs and waiting for it to warm up.

    I have 4 or 5 of them, and a few boxes of tubes. Need to purge out the useless stuff and keep the better caddys for useful tubes. At least 2 of mine are in really bad shape and not really serviceable. I can probably justify 2, one for audio tubes, one for radio tubes. I do have an old TV and will keep spares that fit it, and I'm planning a project amp that will run old transmitter tubes so maybe a third for the "etc" tubes that cover those things.
