Hi,

The accident wouldn't have happened if the box would have been properly designed for its task in the first place...

Those short lipped boxes are bound to open under the weight of anything like a 6550, KT88, 6CA7 and similar tubes when held upright.
The better boxes have triangular lips and a divider running diagonally inside the box so the tube is firmly clamped by the flexture of the carton inside the box.

Expensive accident but it could have been worse still....

Cheers,

If one of those or, god forbid, both of them hit the floor it would definetely qualify for the "worse still" scenario....

Yours Jam?
