The NVM is a cool resource. Tubemonger's Tube Library is another one that I highly recommend.

Nice for pictures (as thats all that's there) & great I'm sure for I.D. purposes, But I have to say the shear amount of info on Tubes and their origins in the NVM is without peer....I'm still trying to wade through all the info!! :roll:

So many tubes so little time :D
