Do a search for 'light bulb limiter'.
It helps define shorts before they burn you. (sorry).

Also, I always first power up without any tubes installed.

A smoking PT is never a good sign, but you may get lucky.

If you anticipate being in this hobby for a while, invest in a quality meter - you'll be using it enough to justify the extra cost.
