You're late, I already posted this five pages back. "Making a Kron tube"

Nice video, thanks! I've seen those tubes in person, they are quite impressive.

(Strange accent the voice-over guy has)

That's a lousy promotional video for some crappy "hand made Audiophile" tubes.

If you want a video on how vacuum tubes are made, you can do better.

for example:
Mullard - The Blackburn Vacuum Tubes Factory (Full) - YouTube
or http://paillard.claude.free.fr/

I wish there were better videos, I'm sure they were made. They're probably lying in film cans in an archive somewhere.

What's your beef with KR? You complained the last time that video was posted.

I did ? I don't remember

found it (the previous post). Nothing personal against KR, I just find the video annoying.
Some part of that video is just bad. e.g. their description of the getter flashing process.
