You joined Instructables this year and are making a claim I have never heard of - that the site's original spirit is to democratize designs so anyone can build them. Does that mean to dumb them down? I love this site for the opposite reason - that people of all abilities share how they made something. Many subjects or projects are out of my scope of ability but I read them the same way I would read a cookbook, not to make them but to enjoy leaning about the process. It's a very harsh claim you are making, I want to know where you got your info. - Ninzerbean
800 amps! Great oogly moogly! Most buildings I service lack that kind of power. Looks great and must have cost a fortune for the tubes.zapp - zappenfusen

Excellent, excellent design. I'm going to make this.
Nonzero, I'd encourage you to see if you can fit all the power requirements into the size of base I created. That would be a fun non-democratic project.
No distress! The spirit is better served by employing these tubes in some way for people to gawk over, rather than keeping them in a box for decades. Best,
I bought a tube from an op shop once. The guy sold it to me for 10 bucks. Out of interest I search for some specs about it online and discovered it dated back to 1930s. I also saw that collectors were paying upwards of $450 bucks for them. I'm still yet to sell it. - ynneb
Gotta love that orange glow, like gazing into the heating elements of the toaster. Warm and wonderful, especially in the cold winter. - foxpup

They are made of glass that clang and can shatter. - iceng
I thought about it all my life. Getting it done is like a relief.
Thanks for your kind words! Yes, your knowledge of these valves is quite impressive! The 327A indeed features uranium glass. I can't wait to try your UV idea.
