It would pass for humor in most of Canada

Insulting Canadian humor is ridiculous, considering a list of Canadian comedy actors including Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Jim Carrey, David Foley, Tom Green, Phil Hartman, Norm MacDonald, Howie Mandel, Mike Myers, Leslie Nielsen, Martin Short, and more.

hi prune, nobody here is attacking you. your question is just not apt for DIY. making a tube requires manufacturing process, equipment, skills and materials (which frank called the scratch). such a big endeavor is way out of DIY.

but, i'm not closing my mind about it. heck if somebody can lay out plans to make a 25w triode out of pepsi bottles i'm all ears (and eyes).
