How did you make that font, Eric?!
That's just a circled dot character from the Unicode Mathematical Operators block.  U+2299.  Most reasonably complete fonts should have it.  It is used to represent the logical XNOR operation.  U+2609 is similar (solar symbol or generic circled dot, maybe).

There is also this gem, if you prefer: ⨃   :icon_lol:
That's an "n-ary union operator with dot."  "n-" presumably can be "mamm-".  :icon_razz:

U+0298 is another similar one called "Latin Letter Bilabial Click" - I think it is slightly taller - looks kind of like an uppercse version of the above:

Depending on the font, this might match the uppercase alphabetical characters better.

perhaps slightly off-topic, but those little glass points on top of valves, where they get sealed after evacuation - would could they be called getter nipples?

Yes.. I just sold a couple used tubes, and they had "innies"

Enough rockets. twoob out twube would be my pick.
But if you want a medical theme: twoberculosis.
Although we call them valves.

"Them Valves" sounds nice
Very slang
Rules apply only for those who are not allowed to break them

A little teaser... got the remainder of the parts in yesterday for the prototype.

I have to throw an enclosure together, and do the final assembly, and test it.  Soon, I hope.

I don't want to be the parade pooper but....

Might want to search TMs for the title "Double Trouble." I see quite a few TMs issued for it (if you plan to sell commercially that is)

YES!  I saw that after I ordered the prototype boards...

TRAIN WRECK.

Rookie valve mistake.  I have the valve pinouts mirrored.  And I swear I checked it 3 times.

I have to flip the device, retrace everything, and reorder proto-PCBs.  Big delay.  Sorry!

I'll update again eventually.  I want to get this going, it is a really fun project.

Any thoughts on the white PCB?  I kind of like it.

Other than it requires you to clean the flux off after assembly or it does not look so nice... But, it makes for a really clean looking build I think.

Cleaning flux to make a white PCB look good is a pain.  I suppose if I bought some real flux cleaner, it would be easier.  I typically clean with a toothbrush and alcohol (isopropanol for the board and ethanol for me).

I use lacquer thinner and a toothbrush.. works real well.  You just have to be careful not to scrub the bands off the resistors!
