when I wanted to order some more I had to find out that the stock info on Jan Wüsten's page is not correct and the working tubes are sold out. Aaarrgghh!
I would have needed a few more for my smart sockets project. Jan sent me all his remaining stock of tubes he sorted out for several reasons and unfortunately it looks that they really all are irreversible defective.
So I'm searching for some tubes for a reasonable prize.
yes, I've seen the offers lately on eBay but the prizes are really crazy these days. The guy who had a whole box of these tubes wanted $210/tube as far as I remember. Jan Wüsten told me that he sold these tubes for 14€/tube.
I have some Panaplex style flat tubes like the 16 digit IGP-17, but these are all 7 segment.
