Anybody want a classic HP 5245L ?

The National Museum of computing is having another Electrojumble sale.

Look at what I found among the items going



Vintage HP 5245L precision counter.
Bargin at £50
Although missing the input module, worth it just for the 8 nixie tubes alone.
There is also a OCXO !

I see someone has restored one before

These will work without the plug-in modules, a blank would normally be fitted if no plug-in was supplied.
Plug-ins were available to extend the frequency range, provide other functions and there was even a voltmeter one.
