Check out this video of this guy making his own triode tubes. I found it very interesting to watch.

I thought I was pretty good at DIY. I'm just a piker compared to him.

That guy was smooth and made it look semi easy. Thats real craftmanship. I wonder how long he has been making tubes and SW radio's?

Please! That was nothing... I make vacuum tubes all the time, for use with my Emotiva Amp.... :Yawn:

So impressive!! A real craftsman. I love how he starts out with a Swiss Army knife, the true DIY'er...

Pops, it looks like a future endeavor for you! Your the man when it comes to DIY! I suspect you will need a few thousand dollars of equipment and a few years of trial and error!

That was really McGuyver wasn't it?
