[GONE] FREE for the taking, Tektronix 475A. pick-up only in MA USA
« on: September 14, 2017, 07:29:48 pm »
Picked this up today along with a TDS754A that needs repair, both units were free! :-+

First one to ask in this thread gets the 475A. Powered on only, I'm not going to test it for you too. ;) Nice bright sharp traces (note where the intensity setting is). Comes with the P6106 probes as well, though one of them seems a bit flakey when you wiggle the BNC end.

Pick up only, about 20 miles south of Worcester MA USA.
Good luck!

Edit: forgot the damn pics!

EDIT2: Please. I don't want to see this end up on Ebay. I will only give it to someone that will USE or NEEDS it.

I am wondering why I live in the UK at this moment in time. Good luck to whoever gets it :)

Is there a local Hackspace or Makerspace?

No, I'm not going to give my 475+DM44 to my local Hackspace - they already have too many scopes :)
There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and ADC/DAC specs.

Let me know if you ever want rid of it. I don't have enough scopes yet ;)

I would like this scope, please.  I have a few other scopes, but they are non-functional.  The 475A will help me make headway on my repair queue.  Should it become surplus to me, I will pass it on to someone else who can use it.

I'm about 50 miles away, so could readily pick it up.

Thanks!

Are you the winner?

Would be fun on way back to run it on an inverter while supercharging my model s.

In Maine with friends in MASS and NH to visit.

(have to hide it in the frunk, might get put away for TEA or GAS)

My hackerspace could use it, I use my 465 for now there.
