Fascinating! I’d never thought that CRT’s were moulded in ceramic but it makes sense. I’ve seen film of the making of valves which seem to use pre-formed glass tubes but I suppose precise display tubes needed different parameters. Perhaps ceramic is the only way to achieve perfection in ‘scope tubes?

There’s a YouTube of the process here: https://youtu.be/G0Dci5RPe94
