ok I was going to put together my own tank for etching boards but for $14.33 i could not pass it up
looks like there is at least 5 markdown stickers layered on top of each other on this thing.. guess they had trouble selling it?

This little toy, bought faulty on eBay for a very good price, fixed and working in 3 minutes and, bonus, the print time counter had only 7 hours on it.

I bagged this on Ebay today, will require a lit bit of cleaning but it all seems to be working just fine.

Can't wait now for it to be delivered now so I can set to and bring it back to its original condition.

I just took delivery of a brand new Pace WJS with instant set back station, turned it on so far and tinned the tips and that's all so far not tried any soldering yet.It  is at least twice the weight of the circuit specialists unit that I have been using to date, but it is nearly twice the wattage.

It'll probably clean up well with just warm soapy water and a very gentle scrub.
If you pull the knobs you can clean them in a basin but watch not to get any water inside the front panel with them off.

Had a quick look at the specs for the 1002 and it mirrors the 210 until you get to the automatic measurements and the screen brightness, the 1002 offers slightly more in both areas but will run slightly hotter because it consumes another 10W. was it really worth the redesign or is the circuitry significantly better and more reliable as a result I wonder? :-//

Because the old scopes that they were using prior may have been analogues and they just made the decision to swap over to DSO's at the end of their planned life and that just coincided with the release of the 1002 model? :-//

Tektronix is also known for pushing their wares heavily in the education market. So that may have had something to do with it as well.

It should then works for the next 7 hours at least...
Hope your fix will last.  :D

This is more of a "what did I find in the lab today"?

Amphonel 132360 (901-10106 seems identical) is a SMA plug rated at 500 connections where the nut does not turn with respect to the pin. This damages the female connector, right? Why would they sell such a thing?

(What I actually bought today is a rod of stainless steel that I'll try to machine into a replacement gage pin for a N-type Maury gage kit I got from eBay.)

I see some of a similar style used here to plug the non-connected port on a wifi router. You would only screw it on once and then never touch it again. Its probably a few cents cheaper to build.

FedEx ground dropped off a new chair for the lab... a Herman Miller Aeron Stool, extra tall!
https://www.hermanmiller.com/products/seating/stools/aeron-stool/

I've had a regular Aeron in my office for 16 years, and it's still comfortable.  So, why not get one for the lab too?

This is a really good looking lab chair.
Do I see it right, the price is $1,129 ?

Beautifull chair. Looks spacey and comfy  :-+
My floor is cluttered so I can't get to the other side of the room,
I need a rail system on the ceiling and the chair attached so it floats over the clutter  :-DD

Did it come with minimalist Herman miller packaging with the handles on the box torn out ?

Yep.  The box was barely holding together, but nothing inside was damaged, so they must have it figured out.
I think I have the chair properly adjusted now... my back will let me know tomorrow.

The fully kitted out Aeron stool, with the full height, and all the adjustments comes in around $1,400 delivered.

Some places will sell for a little less than others, but then charge more for shipping, some have free shipping.  It takes about 3 weeks from ordering to delivery.  In my case, it was due to ship 4 weeks after ordering, but actually arrived at about 3 weeks.

Description:
Aeron Stool - Bar Height, Tilt Limiter with Seat Angle Adjustment, Fully Adjustable Arms, Standard Armpads, Adjustable PostureFit SL Support, Graphite, Graphite Chassis & Foot Ring / Graphite Base, 2.5-inch Hard Floor or Carpet Roll-Away Resistant Casters with Quiet Roll Technology, Black, 8Z Pellicle Graphite

Very nice.  :-+ Unfortunately they come with a rather high price tag and then some. Looked at the satin aluminum w/ fixed arms & carpet + hardwood floor casters; came out to ~$1400 IIRC.  :o  ;D
