The pictures included are too big to be seen, at least on my screen!

Can I suggest that you redo the post using the Attachment option, it's under the Additional Options menu, instead of putting the images inline?
That way, the forum software will automatically create thumbnail images which can be expanded by clicking on them.

If the images are too big to be attached, then you may need to resize before posting.

or use a hosting like http://www.imageshack.us/
Real Circuit design time in minutes= (2 + Nscopes) Testim + (40 +120 Kbrewski) Nfriends

Testim = estimated time in minutes Nscopes= number of oscilloscopes present Kbrewski = linear approx of the nonlinear beer effect Nfriends = number of circuit design friends present

Switch to Opera and you can zoom in/out or fit to screen at will.(Just my little plug for a great browser)

Congratulations.  It looks like c1980s technology and can be easy to repair.  How does it work as a soldering station, by the way?
Best Wishes,
