May 1959 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe Table of Contents 

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

This TEL-A-TURN fixture by Rogers Manufacturing was mentioned in the "Mac's Service Shop - A Good Turn" story in the October 1959 issue of Electronics World magazine. A quick search of other issues of Electronics World in the same timeframe turned up this advertisement. It is easy to see why such a fixture would be a welcome addition to the television and radio service shop. Those vacuum tube sets could be really heavy and unwieldy, which put both the electronics and the service man at risk of damage. I'd like to have one here at home for use in the shop area.

About RF Cafe

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
