Wow! I'm impressed... I would think that the oven temperature profile might be pretty good since the metal tube did not crack at the face plate or funnel seal.

Oven ramps are pretty inconsequential for B&W tubes, there's nothing to break really. As long as it doesn't heat or cool too fast there's really no risk there, and the oven at the museum leaks quite a bit still. Once it's sealed up better and has more insulation the controller may come into play, but for right now we pretty much just let it run how it was gonna run and it worked.

Very nice to hear this news.

We haven't heard any news about tube rebuilding since June. Any updates?

Nothing new. The next attempt will be with a 21AXP22 when Nick comes back to the museum. No date set yet.
