Machlett ML-1? and ML-1K








Here are two versions of the same kenotron, the ML-1?, with an Edison screw filament connection, and the ML-1K with a two prong filament base, showing the same internal structure, probably dating respectively to the thirties and early forties.


Both kenotrons are 11 (26.5cms) long.

The three-strand filaments in both kenotrons still test OK. The ML-1K was withdrawn from a still functional generator in 1957.


No specifications other than those on the oil-soaked label on the ML-1K Kenotron.


The internal structure of these kenotrons is identical or highly similar to that of the ML-15E oil-immersed strongly discolored, 16 (40cms) long Machlett Kenotron illustrated below, with an Edison filament connection, probably of the same series, but of an earlier external design.
