Haven't watched the video yet, but from the comments it sounds like the
fellow has a lot of skill but not much (safety) sense...

Building a miniature x-ray tube

In his amazing 45-minute-long video, [glasslinger] shows us how to make
a miniature vacuum tube, a half-inch in diameter and only about four
inches long.

For those of you who love glass lathes, tiny handheld spot welders and
induction heaters, but don't want your workshop bathed in x-rays,
[glasslinger] has also built a  few other vacuum tubes, including a
winking cat Nixie tube. This alternate cat's eye tube was actually
sealed with JB Weld, an interesting technique if you'd ever like to make
a real homemade tube amp.
