Popped a Tube
« on: January 28, 2019, 02:43:28 AM »
I just did a international move, and they were probably subjected to a bit of violence during the transit.  Looks like the tube failed.  Any other things I should be worried about after seeing this happen?

I got a new pair of tubes and swapped them in, and it works fine again.

If it's working you should be good to go, but you can always redo the voltage measurements to verify things.
