    Maybe they suck out the vacuum for resale! :D

    Tubes are cleaned with vacuum cleaners.

    $1200 for an audiophile class dead tube! They come with noise cancelling vacuum....much more expensive than normal vacuum! :D

    15 or so years ago, I went to an estate sale and found a large box of old tubes, all in original boxes. An older woman, that I found out later was the wife of the guy who had passed away, walked over and looked at me digging through the box. She said the box was $100 or $1 each...Frank ( ...her husband) had told her many times that they were quite valuable. She went on to tell me she had opened all the tiny glass "jars", cleaned out the "dirty wires" inside. Then carefully glued the strange lids back on. She went on to say that I shouldn't handle them roughly as they break real easy.
