Re ageing components, I read somewhere (probably here) that Germanium transistors can grow 'whiskers' inside the case. It was suggested that these can be zapped with a high voltage (NOT in-circuit!)

Also, regarding the 7000 plug-in connector shrouds, has anyone tried fabricating them, maybe using a 3-D printer ?
