Making a Fleming Diode Tube - Ron Soyland

Its not often we get to see someone create a vacuum tube in their home workshop. Ron Soyland, a member of the Houston Vintage Radio Association, created these YouTube videos to show the process behind reproducing a Fleming diode tube. He carries out every task himself, from creating the glass envelope to final evacuation and testing.
Each video is approximately 10-15 minutes long and there are seven parts. Grab yourself a beverage and sit back to watch this fascinating process from raw glass to electronic component.
