Used, like new 34461A for $600 from Korea. Plus $100 EMS shipping.
This is to replace the DMM4050 currently on my bench radiating EMI to nearby circuits.
Also, with the recent addition of an E36313A, this means I finally have a full-Keysight bench.

Tinfoil shield on that DMM4050 perhaps?  ;D

Oh, the "whys" of the datasheets... The information is there not to be an axiomatic truth, but instead each speck of data must be slowly inhaled while carefully performing a deep search inside oneself to find the true metaphysical sense...

Joking aside, wouldn't aluminium or copper tape on the inside of the enclosure, perhaps with a coat of lacquer or nonconductive tape to avoid accidental shorts, actually help?  Assuming it is not radiating off the wires and such.

The vfd window in s the culprit.

Does "a full-Keysight bench" carry bonuses? +2 to Eevblog forum cred? -1 to fumble fingers?

The vfd window is the culprit.
Transparent EMI shielding, then?  Perhaps an ITO film over it?

(Just wondering, in case I have a similar problem one day; I do use small OLED displays, and it may bite me in the butt.  Would be interesting to know if ITO or similar conductive film works, or if display/device replacement is the only real option.)

Well, the stapler was on sale and I'd been meaning to buy a good one for years. All I had until now was a "Little Goliath", which is decent for its size though it struggles to staple more than a few sheets at once. But yeah, I chose the red color because of the movie.


That is surprising considering Amazon usually just sits on your order until the appointed time offset for "free shipping" duration.

I know what you mean. I was thinking this must have been some kind of mistake, but I ordered a few more things Sunday night, chose the free shipping option again, and got an email Monday saying everything had shipped with estimated delivery on Wednesday (tomorrow). Both orders were shipped by USPS direct, none of that stupid hand-off Smartpost/Surepost garbage.

I have a heavy duty Swingline that I picked up from Wally World.  It will handle 40 sheets and I did actually get to test it.  Worked fine.  Mine is orange, black and grey, kind of urban, home office camo.

That which doesn't kill you still requires a co-pay.

Ordered this from Amazon on Wednesday and it was delivered on Friday. Pretty amazing considering I chose the "Free Shipping" option.

A HP 85047A (S parameter test set) to replace a '46A that somebody had buggered about with (Electronic transfer switch had been replaced with a mechanical one, fine until you want S12 AND S21 at the same time!).

Now I just need to suss out how to hack the 8753C so it enables the 6GHz mode with the multiplier in the '47A and life will be good (Until I then discover that my APC cal kit is not good to 6GHz!).

It seems to be functioning, now just need to wait for the VNA to warm up before tying to calibrate.

Regards, Dan.

That Amazon order I placed Sunday night with the cheap free shipping?

Expected Delivery on Wednesday 23 January 2019 by 8:00pm

Delivered

Delivered, Front Door/Porch

I won't bother with a picture as there was nothing really special. Another Wali M001 monitor desk mount and an extension for the one I already have, a 4 pack of eneloop pro AAA, and a Transcend RDF-5 USB Card Reader.


edit to add: There was absolutely no packing material at all in the box. Everything was just tossed in loose. Nothing was terribly fragile, but I'm kind of surprised the box wasn't torn up from the heavier items banging around.

I wanted to get an AY-AT component tester so I could take advantage of the latest OS firmware.  Saw that the "assembled" version on the Bay was only $2 more than the DIY version, so I went for it.  Maybe I should have spent an hour soldering it myself instead?   :-DD

It looks like some poor soul actually hand soldered that for those $2.

A little stash of these 18650 powerbank modules some bloke with a Swiss Accent 'made me buy'  ;)

Tip - buy them in pairs to get 'free shipping' https://www.aliexpress.com/item/ESP32-ESP32S-For-Wemos-For-Raspberry-Pi-18650-Battery-Charge-Shield-Board-V3-Micro-USB-Port/32870411748.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.29a54c4djeAVDC

There's another shop that sells solutions to that "problem". They have a big yellow M over the door.  :D

I've got this beauty, just recently. It is the experimental version of the upcoming P2 MCU, from Parallax. It is quite a beast!

Kind regards, Samuel Lourenço

Just ordered a new car...

It's gonna look like this:

Yeah, it's a hybrid minivan, but at least I got to option in the TRD bodykit and factory lowered springs. :)
Any circuit design must contain at least one part which is obsolete, two parts which are unobtainable, and three parts which are still under development.
