Spade bit vs ABS = mess. Lotus notes book is just for work piece height.

Hooray. The top shelf has been cleared and can now contain my collection of vintage test equipment.

I use the resistance boxes, These are the only resistance boxes I have, no modern ones. The rest of the things in this photo are multimeters. I've put effort into making sure all of them work (nearly all of them, the big digital AVO at the back has a nixie tube multiplexing issue that I need to fix) and so I use them if I need them but I have a modern multimeter that can do most of the stuff I need. If I need two meters at once then I do use the small digital AVO (near middle of picture).

Everything came from ebay.
I also have, fully working and in regular use, a Hameg HM307 cathode ray oscilloscope, a blackstar jupiter 2000 function generator and a sinclair PFM 200 frequency counter. All really old and really awesome.

I've also got a vintage 'logic analyser' which is actually just a glorified set of and gates that let you trigger a scope when a data bus is at the value you want. It's a thandar TA100.

Wow this reply is too long. the TL;DR is: yes I do, all from ebay.

I'm a bit of a vintage tech fan.

Heh, I know all about you guys (as I laser cut you those Spacehack front panels) but sadly I live in Leeds now.

I think I just need to do some reading. I'm reasonably comfortable with most things but I'd like to do more with transistor logic circuits and analogue design. There's a scope on my wish list to assist in that goal.

+Bob Stone  There's plenty of genuine ones too; activate the automatic degausing coil, Enable the vertical sync trigger filter, set the capture delay to maximum.

What happened at google:
"You know what, this half finished full-of-bugs android studio thing is the bees knees. Screw Eclipse/ADT, let's not support that anymore. I know everything worked fine with ADT but you know what; I DON'T CARE! It's not like I like the developers anyway."

Screw you google!
(I'll keep using your services though if that's okay.)

I had a new exhaust fitted here. There was initially some trouble with the replacement parts not fitting and causing a knocking sound but the guys here handled it professionally and quickly without any fuss. Better quality replacement fitted the next day. Excellent.
