must have got it a real bargain price then to be doing a 200 mile trip for it, especially at the way you cost out everything, fuel cost, wear and tear on car, and of your time  :-+

Got it. I’m going for a walk as well. Currently 205m ASL getting the shit beaten out of me. It’s 3 degrees and I’m walking in the clouds and wind is 50mph+. Reminds you how alive you are.

Good 4g up here but nowhere to poop lol.

The whole Deadpool comics and movies are soooo wrong on sooooo many levels.

I just can't stop reading and watching.

It's kind of watching a train wreck type of thing....

Yup. It's like a whole 2 hours of Robot Chicken.  Ryan Reynolds certainly has found his calling.  :-DD

While I AM known to proselytize the virtues of the "pants-free day" at the drop of a hat... ANY hat... I will be the first to remind you that they ARE something you need to plan ahead first...  :-DD

Still, better to go "pants-free" than to wear your "give up on life pants" out in public.

I read that much earlier when I needed to poop and there was nearly an accident from the sniggering :-DD

Pants free FTW. When I was a kid they had to hold me down to put pants on.

Anyway back home now. Money shot. This was worth the drive. More photos later. I have only cleaned this bit so far:



1989 is latest date code which is again, right at the end of the run for these supplies which is massively good  :-+

Missing 3 HP knob caps though and those are buggers to find  :--

It's only the insert bits so not a problem really. I'm just major OCD (hence all the cleaning going on) :-DD

All the same it would have been nice to have seen a before and after shot of the various parts.

It is in remarkable good shape really because the brackets on the transformer and other metalwork are really nice and bright and I doubt that you have gotten a wire wheel in there to give them a shine like that even with your OCD :-DD

Electronics is just a hobby for me. (I am a lawyer by profession.)

Last week I won a big trial. I haven't even sent out the invoice for that case, let alone been paid, when this happened.



Do I need help?

No I don't think you need any help at all, you're doing just fine without any additional help  :-DD

Wasn't the point of becoming a lawyer that you get to send an invoice regardless of who wins? The house always wins.

That being said, nice kit. I really think R&S hit it on the head with that one.

That's what I wanted to say. Transformers and brackets tend to tarnish, but this one is clean as anything.

As technically an IT contractor, that's how it rolls here too (then I have to hire one of you guys to get paid so you can buy a scope  :-DD). Enjoy and nice purchase  :-+

Yeah that was the iffy one. Purely accidental bench shot that but they look pretty good like that.

Edit: found it!

It's definitely pretty clean. Was just dusty. Found some solder splodges inside it and on the front panel and a couple of burns on the terminals but nothing too serious. Last owner wasn't the most careful by the looks though and tried to remove a label with something sharp, scratching the panel up a bit.

Anyway, front panel done (minus those missing caps!).

Before, literally when picked up:



After:



Will do calibration tomorrow as I'm about to pass out in front of Thor.  :-DD

Edit - couple of ones I did before.

6206B (this one was rotten inside):
