I have been reading all of his all glass 15GP22 work, and it is quite awesome to say
the least..... As soon as he completes a few test tubes he may be able to convert
a few 15G's to all glass....

As for RACS, you guys made a gamble on the last rebuilder on the planet.... And
unfortunately it did not pay off, nothing you can do about it now....

The nickle plating process to fix the leaks I thought would have been the best process,
I wonder how that ended up, I have not herd much more on that....

Anyway, that tube will need a lot of work before a reliable process is ready - I think
so you may as well be ready for a wait....

Yes you can call me "Squirrel boy"

That is sad news to hear about the CRTs, Bob. Things sure seemed promising when RACS was able to rebuild that one 15GP22 that had sat at the museum open to the air for a long time. The last I heard, that CRT was still good.
