Howdy everyone, I'm clearing out some surplus equipment that I have acquired over the past couple of years and I wanted to post it here for the community before I just offload it on ebay randos.  I am happy to ship to anywhere at the buyer's expense; I will handle the logistics of packing everything, I also will happily provide free local pickup where I am (DC area, USA. Zip code: 20886).

I have personally used all of this equipment on my own bench, and equipment is in working condition unless otherwise specified; I will happily provide any prospective buyers with photos and tests should they be interested.  All prices are negotiable and in USD.  Please PM with any offers or questions.  The list of what I am parting with is below:

Couple things of interest, but when I checked shipping charges they got uninteresting.  Good luck though.

In regards to shipping costs, I recommend checking out busfreighter if you are buying heavy items (link here: https://www.busfreighter.com/)

If shipping time isn't a problem and you live near a major city, I have used them before and the service is quite excellent and affordable for heavy things. For example, a 45 pound (~25kg) package from Austin TX to Seattle WA is $73, 25% cheaper than the post office.

I am happy to ship to anywhere if you handle the logistics...

What do you mean by that?  Are you willing to pack the items and drop off at FedEx?

That is not good at all.  FedEx Ground (with my crappy discount) is only $47 for that shipment.

Yes I am willing to do that.

It scales well with weight, for example 90 pounds is only $10 more. Maybe FedEx is better with an appropriate discount, but when I last checked it was more expensive.

Regardless, I can make whatever shipping method you choose work.

The price are very attractive. If you can investigate if the units could work with 220VAC mains, maybe some european not america buyers could organize a group buy.

What a treasure trove, I would be like a kid in a candy store if I lived in the USA!

Some ebay sellers have fairly reasonable shipping costs from the USA, but I am yet to discover whether or not they are real - lots of reports of smashed items.

All of the units that I have looked at carefully so far have the logo I attached in this post, which I believe means they are mains voltage agnostic (i.e. can accept 120 or 240 without modifications). Maybe I'm wrong, but someone should check me.

Also I have added my shipping zip code in the original post so that people can calculate their own shipping costs instead of having to wait for me.

For 66332A/663xB you need to change the fuse and modify the transformer, page 69
https://www.matsolutions.com/Portals/0/Product%20documents/Agilent%20Technologies/6631B/6631B%20User%27s%20Guide.pdf


For 662xA there is a voltage selection card, instructions on page 113
https://literature.cdn.keysight.com/litweb/pdf/5957-6377.pdf

HPAK used spade terminals on transformers and jumpers on other models. Check the user guide before you buy.

Thank you, sigurd.

I have also determined that the Agilent E3610A power supplies are 120V only unless modifications are made.

I received the Wavetek 275 and shipping was lightning fast and well packed. Frequency is a bit off (just an adjustment) but otherwise it is in excellent condition! Thank you!

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...

I was lucky enough to grab the 5343A from Sean. If you're interested I did a video overview of it here:

Thanks Tony! I'm glad the primary 26GHz input still works well. Keep me updated on what else you discover!

For those of you following this thread, I have updated the inventory to reflect recent sales.

NP - Should also add that Sean did a great job in answering my questions and then sending the unit - To go all old school "Great experience, would buy again"...
