As I'm not sure how experienced you are with mechanical clocks: don't grease the mechanism. Most clocks are designed to run dry, as grease or oil only attracts dust and accelerates wear.

That is why I am bringing it to the jeweler.  I don't want to damage the clock in any way.  Since the clock is working fine, I am not even worried about the mechanicals.  I just want to clean it up a bit safely.
That which doesn't kill you still requires a co-pay.

When I visited my usual passive parts supplier today for some resistor packs, she gave me two lumps of almost solid metal: a 7-position mechanical switch, and a 220V 50Hz to 24V 50VA transformer.

a 7-position mechanical switch,
Is it an interesting looking one or just a modern standard one? Photo?

A fairly decent looking 1082 with error 6. I'm betting it's the 2/4 wire switch issue but willing to fix it either way. Probably overpaid a bit at $325 but now I'll have 1062, 1072, 1082. Worth it just for the stack.

I just made an semi-impulsive buy here: a Myir Z-turn board with Zynq 7020 plus a breakout board. It would be curious to see some homebrew hardware share a chip with a proper ARM core running full blown Ubuntu Linux.

I also intend to mod the board once I received it, hopefully with 512Mbit NOR Flash.

I restored one of those for someone about 15 years ago and wrote a Windows GUI for it. It needed Intel HEX via RS232. Very cool, but incredibly slow.

Does anyone out here have the original software for the Stag PP28 programmer?
I have one saved from the skip years ago, it has been unused since...

My 1082 came in today. Accuracy is better than the display for sure. That number is accurate.

Edit: It's all warmed up now, mostly sits at 0.00000 to -0.00004 so this is actually an outlier.

One more edit, I bought 16 LM309K's. Mostly gold but 2 steel as well. At $4 a piece I figured why not.

Couldn't find any info on it, and it said Fluke, so I obviously had to buy it.
I guess its just a signal generator they built to easily demo their frequency counters.

Sold my old one 1xPA8700@550Mhz gean and bought a new PA-RISC workstation 1xPA8700@750Mhz.
It's what I daily use for everything, so more Mhz makes the difference.

if someone has some skill with optical fibre channel, please contact me in private! Thanks!

...

Beautiful  :clap:

I'd suggest that you contact Fluke to see if they are willing to provide any information. Guess that trying the phone number in the sticker is out of the question by now.  ::)

Seems that your photos could be a rarity to be found on the web, so... can we expect any "take it apart" in the mean time.
If any intervention was done over the years, some caps are gone by now. But if you intend to restore it, please take some photos before doing anything, just for history record purpose.
Glad you grab that piece of gear.  :-+
Because I'm only human... A mistake is not the problem. Not learn from it and not trying to correct it, is.
Don't be afraid to make mistakes, or you will end up doing nothing, being scared to even try to do something.
Don't search for excuses for your mistakes. Find solutions.

Just a guess but it does have 'Counter Demo Aid' on the bottom of the Fascia. I would think it is just that made to demonstrate and sell other gear. Occasionally Badged gear turns up as an unknown and some of that was used for internal production and testing.

Always cool to see internal/demo equipment. I also vote for more pics and teardown in its own thread. :-+

A ball point+capacitive touch pen+ruler (1cm/div, 0.5cm/div, 0.33cm/div and 1"/div)+level combo from a sales rep. Pretty good building quality, full anodized aluminum body.

I don't know. It seems it's not designed to b refillable.
BTW, while I was trying to open it, I discovered it also has a flat+phillips screw driver set in it.

I'll take it back. It's refillable, with a 2.75" metal refill.

Apparently, yes. Which makes this pen the most expensive one I've ever owned.

To date, I bought (directly from him or processed by him) from my local KS sales rep:

1. 2*E36313A - 3CH PSU
2. 2*M9243A - Dual 1GHz OSC
3. 1*M9240A OSC - Autoprobe I/F
4. 1*M9240A-AWGA - AWG License
5. 3*M9111A - 18W SMU/PSU/Load
6. 1*M9371A - 6.5GHz VNA

Besides KS got some indirect sales from me buying used KS gears, like M9037A PXI controller and 85521A VNA calibration set.

60c on Aliexpress:

I'll order some and see if it brings more sales to me ;).
