    Default Scissiocontrols.com C16J Thyratron Replacement

    I would like to say thanks to Tim Jones for his excellent work on the C16J thyratron replacement. For a very reasonable price I have replaced both of my tubes and my 10ee is working a lot better than I expected.

    I will restrain myself from giving all of the credit to these parts because I think I had a weak tube and just having two good working thyratrons (or thyratron replacements) made a great improvement on my lathe. I have noticed much quieter operation, and the control of the speed is much finer. I can dial in 30 rpms if needed or all the way up to max speed and I can set the speed very precisely.

    Couldn't be happier. Now to get rid of that noisy fan.

    Yes, my replacements from Tim at Scissio Controls are working great. What are your plans for the fan? It does need some air flow for general cooling of the other thyratron and the braking resistors, correct?
