The unit has been under a dust protector (Which is included) when not in use. There have been no issues with unit. Only thing done is changed tubes from time to time. Last complete tube change was 14 January 2016. With 2453 Hours on timer.. Did change out 6550 Rectifier 26 August 2017With NOS 6550-C Svetlana Electron Devices Inc Rectifier. Will include second tube with unit.
