Thread: Power down on my 80w Rabbit.

  1. #16
    So 3 new mirrors, and a new tube, still low on power. Now that I have a amp meter to watch as I was slowly increasing the power from 50 and finally I did 100 the meter actually dropped back down to 7-9ma at full power!

    Whats next? Power supply? If it is, did I buy a tube prematurely? Ray said it looked like my old tube was firing fine in a video I showed him.

    Argggg.

    Maybe if you would have contacted Ray like I suggested.....

    Ray said to send power supply back for testing.
