I just bought a broken Tektronix 3465A I hope to repair/refurbish.  Should be a fun project!

Got a couple USB power bank cases. Not long after installed batteries, one is already no where to be found.

Got also three more charge doctors. At less than $2 each, I feel every USB charger in use should have one of these on.

And, ya, a Fluke863 for about $100 can be counted as a purchase of recent month. it had a few blank lines and needed to put some pressure on the ribbon connector to fix.

Spaghetti with marinara and hot Italian sausage, crunchy garlic knots, tiramisu for dessert and a Stella Artois to wash it down, also yum yum.

Not as flouty as the French stuff but I've just had a flatcake breakfast from my regular greasy spoon. They're normally a bit overbearing but this one took me an hour to eat and I don't think I'll need anythig else for days lol.

Not a purchase but apparently I'm recieving a box full of 4PDT relays later today...

On Friday, I received orders for 2 of my Generator Autostart ATS Control Panels.
Spent some time on Saturday, and most of this afternoon completing the board layout.

then this evening I Just spent over ZAR700 (about a tank of petrol) with ITEADSTUDIO
for 10 off 10x10cm Prototype PCB's
Most of the cost was for the DHL shipping.

I just couldn't wait 4 months for the standard shipping.

Now I have my fingers crossed that they will arrive in 2 weeks!

Paid $150 for an HP 34401A. The seller then threw in a bunch of nice cables, then offered me a free PM6303 LCR meter, which of course I accepted.

1. Some new cutters and pliers from machine mart (these rock and are dirt cheap): https://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/product/details/cht196-5-pce-stainless-steel-mini-plier-
2. A large amount of low ohmage 1W resistors so I don't keep smoking the 1/4W ones.
3. Some new polybox caps as I've run out
4. Some more FR4 padboards
5. Some presets
6. A pile of electrolytic capacitors including some nice looking philips axial ones
7. Some medium power transistors.
8. Cider. Lots of cider.

$87.50 and $35 shipping.

ETA: That's a google image search photo. The one I ordered off of that auction website will likely not look quite as nice.
