A deeper look at the cathodes of the most common tubes that were available during 90s in Lithuania.

A deeper look at the cathodes of the most common tubes that were available during 90s in Lithuania.

I took the most common tubes that were sold in the 90s and early 00s in my country Lithuania and I broke them and took the cathodes for the deeper look. I plan on making a stand for these cathodes to make like paperweight or something weird idk yet.

All tubes were very dead, far past EOL stage. So don't feel bad for me destroying "good" tubes. They were dead husks of good tubes. To prevent rust issues and maybe some residual mercury being vaporized into my room I dipped these cathode assemblies in 50/50 water diluted acrylic lacquer. Nice conversation starters.

Nice selection! I recently got a GE 150w incandescent lamp that broke at the base but the filament assembly is still intact!

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.
