Triodes like mama used to bake...

01/20/2008 1:18 PM

If you spend 17 minutes doing anything today (or tomorrow), and the boss isn't looking, make it watching this amazingly skilled craftsman make his own thermionic triode vacuum tubes from scratch.

Literally.

Well, yes, reaction-tuned radios are a bit old hat. If I had his facilities I would make more interesting stuff; Crookes tubes... something a bit more dangerous than French a.m. radio...

Still, admiration!
