    They even covered this clown's listing on Unknown Highway.Com. I couldn't believe it! I just pray that he doesn't find a buyer as clueless as he is in regards to vacuum tubes. It's sure to become a classic on all of the musician and vintage electronics geek talk boards.
  11. ahh, im no scientific wizard, but one assumes that this situation is self explanatory and easily avoided. God bless craigslist

    Gah, wish I'd caught this earlier, it's flagged now. I was going to e-mail the guy and ask if he put the vacuum back in when he was done cleaning them.

    At least he should have used a vacuum cleaner. Everyone knows that.

    I used to take dead tubes apart as a kid - the innards *are* fascinating...
