    Well, its definately a do it at home radio tube tester. It would test several different types of tubes and let you know if the were any good or not. They work ok in a pinch, but they don't do the in depth, thorough testing that a proffessional unit would do. So, ya want to double yer money? It would go nice with the rest of my vintage testers.

    These testers only check to see if your tube has an open filament or not .You could do the same thing with a VOM .
