What do we think this guy is worth?

I would say "free" to any collector that has a similar unit in their TEA stash already, just pay shipping. Its too nice to keep as a decor piece, and truth be told, I wil never use it for anything other than fun/learning.

Someone selling similar for $750  :o

Ahem, thanks for pointing out it's great cost, as always it's the prices they're actually selling for, not what they're listed at that's important. I just bought a fully working 66311B for £100, but ago keysight tell me it's worth thousands 😁.

As I don't really need it, just wanted to add it to the standards, I'm happy to see it sold to fund inverted's TEA or given to someone who can make a better case for it!

so maybe this is the other half, its quite large though. (i think its another self contained WSB).

It is a nice lot of gear to the right person and worthy of a good home but the skills to drive it will become lost to the Physics nerds before long which is a shame. Not even sure if Bridge measurements are still taught more than in passing anymore :'(

@Conrad Hoffman springs to mind as someone who may have an idea for a good home including his own ;)

I believe the temperature calibration standards still require the use of a bridge, at least that's according to a researcher I know who helped redefine the Boltzmann constant a decade or so ago. I told him I had a DMM7510 and he was very excited but was sort-of disappointed with its resistance range (!), as temperature work requires more precision.

There is still a place for bridge methods and even the use of Null meters with them over Digital meters but it is a topic well worth it's own thread :)

Really? Mine was cal'd Nov, and I only just bought it too. That's disappointing...
You've got to have some grounds for getting a partial refund or a fresh cal from the supplier? Is it ok to sell out of cal meters?

NO ONE LIKE COOKIES HERE?

I would lurve some, but I suspect that shipping halfway across the world on their own probably isn't a great idea. Hoping to spot some equipment I could justify buying in order to piggyback them on it :)

its actually one word there guy "nitpick". if you are going to correct someone, get your ducks in a row first.

It wasn't a correction, it was a joke.

We are no longer the Knights who say NIT.  We are the Knights who say ickyickypekangwhoopboing.
That which doesn't kill you still requires a co-pay.
