  1. before I begin I’d just like to say, fuck you, but then continue more civilized. I know they dont make these but OH WAIT, they totally still do make lots of thermionic valves, I’ll use them however I want, by the way they are easily removable from this device and are not impared by my modifications to allow them to light up with LED’s. I wont read any more of your replys because I’m pissed off, they will be deleted, good day.

  2. Would you and the rest of these Steampunk morons kindly LEAVE THE TUBES ( thermionic valves  for the British) ALONE?? Christ! they don’t make them any more and they DON”T belong on some crackpot contraption.
