Electronic construction is a hobby... I have a lot of old tube gear that I occasionally restore, but much of the problem is parts availability (especially high voltage capacitors) as well as mechanical issues such as corrosion removal. Custom parts such as multi-tap potentiometers is another big problem. If you are thinking about making up kits for construction, be sure stick to recent designs and common parts.
Thats spot on brian 3i. I was thinking of commonly available gear like the BH Crack and that sort of thing. Not the super exotic unobbtainium stuff - although people can always source more exotic components with same electrical value (ie: substitute standard caps for PiO ones) if they want.
