Hi Guys,

New member here in Brisbane. I started my hobby by fixing up 1950's 1960's tube stereos. You know the sort in their own furniture with a record player. Then gradually started collecting period-relevant tools from mid-century, and then i found I started to enjoy collecting the tools more than the radio repair.

I have a large stock of old tubes, and a few old multimeters (1960's) from Kyoritsu and Sencore. I got an old japanese 1980's scope and a 1960's Tektronix scope. 1950's tube tester and capacitor checker, 1960's signal tracer, Secore Mighty mite tube tester, 1970's Sencore transistor testers x2, 1960's counter with nixie tubes, some old 1960's signal generators etc and probably a few things I have forgotten. Most of them have just needed small amounts of attention to get them working perfectly, others (like the super cool 1950's capacitor checker) needed massive overhauls, and some i haven't got to yet. The Tek scope is the most amazing piece of kit.

Anyway, that's me. Hope to fix up some old radios again once I get some jobs out of the way around the house.

Hi All, I am just an olde lover of electronics. I studied electronics in a vocational school, worked at a few companies (test equipment, commercial, components} then change occupation to Mechanical Engineering. But, I have dabbled in electronic repair ever since. I only have a VOM and power supply. I have collected components over time as the evolution from early bimetal mechanical thermo switches to micro electronics fascinates me. I found this site today and feel I can contribute in a primitive way, being more tuned in with resistors, diodes, transistors and breadboard, though I used to be versed in 7400 series IC's. That was some time ago...

To all new members - and the other ones - WELCOME!  Good to see you here!

It always fascinates me to see the broad spectrum of members here - from professional to hobbyist backgrounds; from interest and/or experience in audio to areospace; young and old; from the farthest corners of the world .... and every point in between.  Not only that, but the willingness for so many members to share their knowledge and experience as well as help and advise other members is nothing short of amazing.


I suggest every member should drop in here occasionally and just check out those who have introduced themselves.  It is really encouraging.

This is one of the best places on the internet - IMHO

Hello! It will be extremely difficult to understand what is written below. I am writing this sober and not under the influence of drugs. My life has been ambiguous. Since childhood, I have been interested in technology. But in my country it was not popular, to put it mildly. After the collapse of the USSR, complete degradation and deindustrialization began here. That’s why I ended up getting into medicine. Where I successfully work. At the same time I learned English :) But when I graduated from medical school, I discovered that everywhere people earn more than me. This is the paradoxical reality of our country. And my former classmates appeared in my life who asked me to make a metal detector (it was expensive back then) - and showed me the entrance to a hole in the fence leading to a scrap metal dump...
n general, I will not write too much - I will say that in the age of fools there must be a void of miracles and I found it. it was fun and interesting. There were plans to make a mini-factory. Until the moment when the war began. And now I’m trying to find my place in this madness. I don’t know what to say. I see several very important things that need to be done in medicine and in other areas, but it’s not clear whether it will be possible in the current situation. but I'll try. My parents’ generation said, “We were born to make a fairy tale come true.” And I should probably rephrase it as “We were born to make comics real.” Doctor Ido from the manga "Battle Angel" also regularly visited the scrap yard. In general, I really hope that you will never understand me.

Hello im Andrew i am a long time hobbiest and self taught in electronics design as well and programming in multiple languages.im a automotive technician by trade and specialize in electrical diagnostics and repair i do alot pcm and module repair and reprogramming with a general goal of saving people lots of money by bypassing manufacturers attempt to require you to buy new hardware and i achieve this by ether hacking a used module to work with a different vehicle or repair issues on a module that most techs can't. Im currently designing a device to help other techs do this easily even without the knowledge i have.
