Summed it up beautifully there Leigh.

I clicked the link and my heart sank in the same way.

The reason, of course, is that the audio people seem to love the idea of paying premium prices, whereas we hams have a different mindset.

Reconstituting the tooling, materials, and knowhow to produce these Tx tubes to the 
former Eimac quality standard would be an overreaching bridge too far….

In case someone hasn't seen this. Western Electric is looking to get back into 
the domestic tube market, and they are looking into what tubes to produce. You 
can see more and make suggestions here:
