Many of us have probably seen the two-part video on Youtube of a French (I think) chap making diode valves in his own workshop. Links to these have been posted several times over a couple of years on the British vintage radio forums.

After watching these again with interest I decided to have a dig around and see what else I could find. Sure enough, I ran into a three-part video on valve manufacture at Mullard's factory in England. Links to each part are below. Enjoy. Wink

Mullard valves, part one.
Mullard valves, part two.
Mullard valves, part three.

It would be nice to see some footage of valve manufacture at AWA's Radio-Electric Works. If anyone knows of the existance of such material I would be pleased to hear about it.


A valve a day keeps the transistor away...
