Exciting! For that price, is there anything left inside?

Will see once i get it into my paws. Supposed to be complete except A3 ADC board. But who need it anyway, ADC needed replacement in 100% of my 3458A's :D.

I have a slow carrier pigeon bringing an A2 board for the AC reluctant VK5RC 3458, same fault code as Shariar's TSP youtube repair but mine is not as simple as the op amp, rather bizarrely it has a bipolar class op amp where the schematic has a FET type, replacing it either didn't help.
Whoah! Watch where that landed we might need it later.

Ain't no school like old school.

Got the larger battery, 32Mb upgrade, external keyboard, centronics printer cable, and I just added a 4Gb CF card (partitioned to 2Gb + 2Gb)
Coming still is an Ethernet card and a Wi-Fi card.

Just gotta track down a dock, serial cable and the Windows CE 2.11 upgrade card.
Any circuit design must contain at least one part which is obsolete, two parts which are unobtainable, and three parts which are still under development.

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...

Works great with Fusion360.

Also panning and zooming in CircuitStudio is super smooth

Needed to make some custom rubber feet for a job. This is the excuse and justification  :-DD

Buy a 2nd 3D Printer (Ender Pro), Flexion Extruder and some Filament to double the purchase price. Result will be the most expensive Rubber feet going  :o

A ha, but when you start talking ‘custom’ anything, the $ often goes up to $$$$.
Not easy, not hard, just need to be incentivised.

Today has been a bit of a Revelation

I know its not the best but its budget friendly and a lot better than the plastic junk Bresser supply with a scope - the focuser is a Orion one (cast metal) to replace the broken plastic one

To me it looks like you designed a 3D printed prison for your SpaceNavigator, using your SpaceNavigator  :-DD  :palm:

Been using one with SolidWorks for years now.  VERY useful device!!

If it jams, force it.  If it breaks, you needed a new one anyway...

The control knob is sensitive for shocks (it may start to drift too much so calibration can not compensate). This case makes contract with the base only. I use the case for storage and transportation.

I bought a used Playstation 2 slim for tearing it down in my channel Thundertronics. I am looking for a PS 1 for the same reason (prefer giveaway if possible and I cover shipping).

I bought 1 of these and they are awesome! I got it from these guys. It took a few days as it came from Germany but well worth the wait. It really is an awesome product!

I brought some non standard no-name cheap wong hung lo sata interface adaptors for an Apple Air SSD for a customer. I couldn't find any quality ones selling. I was a bit worried as I read that the regulators on them can get hot.

Wouldn't use the bundled USB3 sata controllers
