This Vintage Tek series will cover the technological infrastructure you'll need to build, repair, and maintain vintage tube-type electronics. For example, the first half-dozen articles include how to read those old schematics, how to build and use a bulb current limiter, how to install and use an autotransformer, how to use a line isolator to keep you safe when working with HV tubes, and how to use capacitor checkers and tube checkers. If you plan on refurbishing that old radio in the attic, this series is for you.
