Just ordered a DSLogic Pro 16-ch version. Need to work on some JTAG devices and don't have the time to write decoder plugin for my AD2. Delivery is due in 150 minutes.
The software is intuitive, and works just right out of the box.
DSView is Sigrok-derivative, and both are licensed under GPL.

FWIW, the under $10 MCU123 and Saleae Logic clones on fleabay work fine with Sigrok, and use Sigrok's own fx2lafw firmware – so the only thing "Saleae" on it is the sticker on top; the design itself is almost straight off Cypress FX2 application notes, and you won't be infringing on anyones intellectual property if you rip the sticker off.  These are based on Cypress FX2, and limited to 24 MHz sample rate and 8 channels, but for hobbyists working on Arduino-like stuff (serial, SPI, I2C, WS2811/WS2812B/APA102 etc.), can be very useful.

I also have Bought a DSLogic Pro a few months ago, and it's a great tool.
Be aware that those relatively low-cost analyzers are fine for "low-frequency" logic, but useless for anything above ~50 MHz (clock rate). So don't expect to be able to use them to capture like 100 MHz+ digital signals for your FPGA design, for instance.

It arrived within 90 minutes

I thought we were spoiled by Amazon same-day, but that's quite something!

He lives in Shenzhen.

The last package I got from there took 90 days to get here.

Sure, but it'd take me that long to walk down the local shop to get some milk.

I ACTUALLY used food delivery service (meituan.com) to deliver this thing. They also offer goods running service at a cost higher than their food running service, but they do offer that.

DreamSource Technology is only 26 km from my company, so it's a relatively short trip and it only took 1.5 hours because the driver had to pick up and deliver more goods on the trip here.

I bought a Note 20 Ultra because my old Razer Phone 2 came apart when the battery became very large all of a sudden.

In most Asia developing countries, motor cycle ride for hire are plenty and norm, like food delivery and merchandise delivery too.

Motor cycle is much faster than delivery car/truck in big cities, and online shopping in the same city when opted for shipping with instant delivery, usually they arrived within hours and norm, and with tracking too of the rider's GPS position once they picked up the merchandise.

Just ordered an ATTEN ST-862D Hot Air station.

I have heard that for the money it is a fairly decent hot air station.

Ordered some 45 degree nozzles and soldering tips on top to get free postage.

Received my Siglent SDS2104X+ On Friday.
It is like stepping into a Roll Royce after using my Hantek DSO4204C😁.
Got it from Triotest, turned up in less than 24 hours.
I love the big ass touch screen, so easy to use.

Noga Deburring Tool
« Reply #10416 on: October 25, 2020, 09:58:05 am »
Doing a lots of metal works recently like cutting and drilling, as I'm an amateur and also clumsy  :palm: , the sharp edges from the metal cut and drilled holes cut my hand and fingers a lot at many occasions and bleed like hell, so tired of using file or sand paper, and so pissed  >:( , and told my self enough is enough.

Bought my self the duck's gut of the de-burring tool and the extra 10 carbide blades, Noga, made in Israel.

MarkL, thank you so much for information and the forum link as well!

Did not know that they where re-badged and sold by B&K Precision as the 886 and 885 LCR meters. I got this from a friend of mine and he did not really know what they used it for. The company he worked for vent bankrupt and no one had a clue what it was!  ;D All was there in a box: Kelvin clips, SMD test probe and calibration plug. I saw a price that was nearly $1000, but that was a while ago. Very kind of you to share that information which sooner or later will come in handy.  :-+

These two were given to me for free, but at the time of writing I do not know what I am going to do with them.  ;D These were used by technicians at a local hospital but when they moved to a new built hospital, nearly 20 years ago, they were thrown in garbage container and a friend of mine picked them up and stored them in his garage until know.  :)

That is for sure !  :)
I was more thinking to use them to hold things that may get hot when soldering, particularly when using hot air. Sometime it is small PCBs that get hand assembled or reworked.

An Avometer Model 7, Mark 1 (I guess; it lacks the Mark 2 features), made November 1950. It is in almost perfect condition, bar some rust in the battery bay, and binding posts miss some parts. I need to verify function on all ranges. The movement is free and responds to stimulus.

Most important: It won't get turned into a lamp holder.  Pic from ad:



What I like about these old AVOs is, no matter what condition you find them, they always seem to be happy.

Ah ha! I thought that looked familiar. Checked in my 'old manuals' stack, and I have an original TF 2700 Universal Bridge manual. Operating, theory and schematic.

The manual and the instrument should come together. It's yours for postage (from Sydney Australia.) Or I could scan it.
Another alternative, just mentioning it for completeness: If you aren't likely to use that, I'd buy it from you (though only if cheap.)
I collect old test equipment. (Same as about 80% of eevblog members.)
Collecting old scopes, logic analyzers, and unfinished projects. http://everist.org

Hi TerraHertz and thank you so much for your offer!  :)

I will take a serous talk with myself if I want to keep it or not. It is late night here in Northern Sweden - 02.15 - so I will have to come back. Of course the price would be cheap because the shipping cost, even though it is rather light weight, be a big part of the total expense. Well  ... I have already talked to myself and if you want it just drop me a pm and let me know what you think it is worth. :)
