Wow. We need a smartphone to take a picture and zoom in.   :o

Yes, this one has no gpib interface.
It can zoom a bit in the vertical direction and some more in the horizontal direction.

But there is something I didn't find on the modern digital GUI interface, namely cursor info. You can change your position in the time capture and for each channel it show the state (0 or 1), together with a weighted sum on all channels. See image

Decoding is done by adding a ROM pack (in Tektronix parlance, the 12RMXX series) that can do the decoding.
My setup doesn't have any of these rompacks.
does it have any protocol decoding?

I picked up some metal working aids.  I searched all over for decent hardened transfer punches. These are just more of the same Chinese junk sold everywhere else.  I guess I’ll just have to take light hits and follow up with a better tool.

Panasonic  dental jet irrigator EW1211

EU 3 at Vide Grinier street sale in paris.

Used but almost new, came with charging stand 120/240V and one tip.

Sterilized the tip and resovoir, charges and works fine, better than my Krups or Water Pic portable.

Just got a pair of new tips off ebay from TW.

Bon Soiree,

3 x HP 4204A 10Hz - 1MHz oscillators. Bought one on ebay close by, asked for local pickup to buy the other two cheaper! Total: $153. Vintage design but has modern IEC sockets and cool carry handles.
My third 3456A that needs some repair, an AC Ratio transformer that works great and a somewhat cheap battery cell welder. Sucks for any other thing but welding thin nickle sheets to stuff.

I’m not normally an analogue dude but I bought an Addiesdive Dive Watch and another Skmei 1278 from Aliexpress, my first and probably expect the last purchase from them. The Addiesdive watch arrived with deep scratches in a few of the band links which are too deep to polish out and I’ve just wasted over two hours trying to seek a resolution as they kept ending the discussion during the return/ refund process, I finally got a return label. FFS!   ::)

Yesterday, at my workplace I got the opportunity to bring this network analyzer home. It's a R&S ZVR. It's still a beast. I don't really know what i'm going to do with it.
I'm so happy :)

Hopefully with a proper watch you will see when it's dinner time in NZ instead of trying to call me.  :horse:

I did you a favour by calling at that time, man cannot survive on frozen boot screens alone.   ::)

Last week the cardiologist said I may not have much time, so I went and bought more watches to prove him wrong again.   ;D

Didn't buy it and it's not from today but this is a 3D SMD Flipper I am using for some time with great success.

To flip the components you tap it gently on the table and let probability work for you.

Bought this week -- 3 off HPAK 3458As. I needed one to test a stock of spare parts I recently purchased but the seller had three & it seemed like a good idea at the time. These had not been used for a while, so will need careful testing to be sure these are working. One has  problems so will also need fixing. I did want a summer project.
