Fraser, you have a solid reputation here on this forum, so are going to have a good sale, like Ian does when he gets stuff.

6. ... As a non commercial seller of the equipment, I ask to be treated fairly with offers. I am not just ‘ditching’ a container load of ex MoD equipment onto the market or trying to make a fast buck. ...

7. ... It cannot be for free or even bargain prices however as I cannot afford to give away equipment when it can provide essential funds for my life going forwards. This is why offers on equipment that I sold in the past have caused mr some concern.Students offering $100 for an equipment that sells used for over $700 are likely to be disappointed as. Just cannot work with such an offer. ...

Hi Fraser,

Since you've mentioned the gist of the above a few times in the thread, it may be beneficial to adjust the title of the thread from, "Frasers equipment disposal begins," to something that sounds less like you're having a fire sale or skip filling weekend. For example, "Fraser's equipment rehoming sale begins," or if you want to spice it up more, "Fraser's equipment rehoming extravaganza begins," may suffice.

Thanks for the comments :) Post title 'tweaked'  :)

OK, I had to dig a PC VNA out of my lab for a buyer today so took the opportunity to snap some quick pictures of the sort of kit that will be up fro re-homing. The pictures are quick and dirty and the equipment is straight out of my storage so dusty etc. It will be cleaned before sales pictures etc.

There is a LOT more of this type of equipment in my spare room and office so this is really just a teaser or sampler to provide an insight into what I have. I have a stack of Marconi test equipment in the spare room that was just too much effort to get to so that will appear in the proper selling posts.

Before anyone comments... these pictures are just for fun and teasing, they are not the formal offers of sale that will be a description and proper pictures on multiple sides.

Enjoy :)

Fraser

Oooops, I obviously selected the wrong image :) I will delete it :)

All of that kit was in just three cupboards and a couple of racks in my lab ! There is so much more in storage because I did not use it often. My back is killing me just from today's activities.... this equipment sale could be the death of me  ;D

Save your back by not taking such good photos on a desk. Auction houses just take photos of the stuff on a shelf, with adjacent items partly shown in the margins.

Save your back by doing a "Salvage Hunters", and let wannabe Drew Pritchards wander around, chat and discuss offers.
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.
Glider pilot's aphorism: "there is no substitute for span". Retort: "There is a substitute: skill+imagination. But you can buy span".

Wow Fraser, thats a huge load of some very good kit there, most of it is way above my level but there are a couple of items there that caught my eye and I would be very interested in but as a senior citizen, funds are considerably tight so it would for me all hinge upon the sort of price your looking for them. The 2 items of interest to me are the Marconi 2022 and the Uni-T UT81.

I'm in Essex, Chelmsford to be precise and depending on where you are, I'd be happy to come and pick them up so no packing etc to get involved in providing you're within 2 or 3 hours or so drive from me.

I didn't know Tabor was an OEM for Global Specialties. I knew they were for Keithley, Fluke, Wavetek, etc.

Indeed.  This is not a tease ... it's torture.

*Passes out* *THUDDDD-WHUMMMP!!!*

*Picks self up off floor, shaking head groggily*

Only three things keep me from invading and clearing you out by the truckload...

1) "The Pond"

2) Already mortgaged to the hilt

3) Moving, so wife would kill me... after I beat myself insensible with a clock mallet.

My interests are modest.  A thermal camera with a moderate resolution is the only thing I would seek.  Doesn't need to be sophisticated, although some features would be nice.

My problem is simple - funding.  Embarrassingly so.

She is right though, If I dropped dead, there would be an awful lot of kit to shift to the local recycling centre !
Yep, i had the misfortune of seeing that happen to someone. (SNIP) Here's a video of the basement level that a friend took

http://y2u.be/eUbnS-vcDQs

*cringe* And that guy was mostly interested in stuff for gold reclamation value...  :palm:

The horrifying part for me is that I'm well on my way there... my back office and garage are/were (I've hoed out the office twice since starting this move... about halfway through the garage now) very MUCH very similar textbook examples of JENGA and it is only this cross-country, hopefully international move that is making me re-evaluate my natural junk hoarding tech treasure collecting predilection. And I've been chipping away at my own hoard for over a year already... |O

Pray for me.

Does any of the equipment you're planning on selling go up past 3/4 GHz? I'm local and could do a pickup. Interested in a pair of RF Siggens/vector siggens mostly. Any chance you have a USB spectrum analyzer that's going to make the sell list?

@dkozel,

No sadly I stopped at 3GHz for R&D and never went after higher frequency kit except 10GHz radar and satellite kit.

No USB SA's either.
