Making Your Own Vacuum Tubes / Ion Guns

Post by inflector » Fri Sep 19, 2008 6:12 pm

I found a very interesting video (via Boing Boing) that shows an amateur French radio operator who makes his own vacuum tubes completely from scratch.

I thought it might has some ideas for those of you who are constructing ion guns. The way he works glass is quite amazing.
