I seem to remember a Scientific American article back in the 1950s
...probably an Amateur Scientist.... where they described fixing some
aluminium foil to the outside of the top of a 6J5G (with a twist of hook-up
wire, firing up the heater with 6.3v AC and putting a few kV between the
heater and the foil. X-rays from the foil (due to electrons hitting the
glass) The 6J5 is quite good as you can see the end of the cathode through
the top mica support so it supplies a faily narrow beam of electrons.
Best of luck...dont forget the lead underware !!
