Can you date this X-RAY tube?
« on: February 11, 2001, 11:19:00 am »
I just came across this huge GE Coolidge X-Ray tube and I'm trying to pin a date on it. There's no side exhaust tip as I've seen on similar spherical tubes like this so I'm guessing it's from the 1920s or so. Does anyone know for sure? Any x-ray tube gurus out here???

Hi Tim,

I have similar X-ray tube Coolidge a little more modern type. It was made around 1924-5 years. So, your datas are probably relevant.
