That is better for control of the tip but it is 4mm longer to the tip than the 9501 handle is  >:D
Oh, now you're just agitatin'.  :-DD

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'll still like it better due to the slimmer profile of the grip area. 4mm longer I can live with;

40mm longer is just a massive " :wtf: were you thinking when you designed this? Were you thinking AT ALL?!?"

Carry on agitatin', please!

No actually it was in my head, next to most of my friends. You really ought not to root around in there, no telling the cosmic horrors you may uncover. I mean what if you stumbled across the fact were all comic book characters while you are in there? The result of that would be devastating.  :-DD

Well technically in that scenario i would be calling all of us cartoon characters. As for the number.... OK i will. Damn it! I drew a 666, does this win me anything?


Um Ed, could you back off with that torch and gasoline. Oh, you can't do that? What if i promise i'm not a witch?

Sure but it's not really just an AWG/FG and I've already got a lowly selection of those......hopefully soon I can afford to splash out on the flagship model AWG, SDG6052X, 500 MHz 2ch.  :o

Does that 7A18A work and how much you want for it? It would be perfect for my OS-245 (7603N).

... prepare yourself to pay the price of a nice house (sportscar included) if you go for the 4-port, nonlinear 50GHz version.

You are partly correct. It's a military OS-245(P)/U which is basically a 7603N. The vertical plug ins are military AM-6565/U which are basically a 7A15.

And yes, the cabinet was originally military grey. I sprayed it close to Tek blue.

And maybe a few organs...hopefully it comes in a nice big box I can live in after I buy it.  :-DD

It's 1 C outside. It's raining. The ground is snow covered and frozen solid from prior days cold. Result? Ice on the roads and vehicles are smashing into poles, trees, other vehicles, ditches, etc. Total chaos out there and the road crews are having a hard time keeping up with the sand/salt. Glad I don't have to go out.  :scared:

Here I go thinking we're friends, and you insult me?  >:( What gives? <---Just kidding, I am not insulted, trying to be funny
Just pick a couple and PM me your address, I'll drop them in the mail for you tomorrow, give ya something to play with til it warms up. I would send you the whole 7704A it came with (i have the 04 *edit fixed typo) if it wasn't so damn expensive to ship. The plugins will fit nicely into a flat rate box for you. ( I am keeping the CAL UNIT and the 7B53A, as I don't have doubles of those).

general question for the gear-nuts:

Do you prefer 3 or 7 day auctions on evilBay? For me it seems the 7 day is a waste of 4 days.

Some of what you are trying to sell is a bit oddball. I would be going with a sensible buy it now lower reserve and 7 day for those in particular no bids it just goes around again and you don't loose your shirt (like you have done with some already). You need them to be found to get bids is the reason to go 7 over 3.

Surprised that stray inductor hasn't a got a bid so far.  :-//

damn, how did you know I was sitting here topless ^-^

I did take a beating on the standards I have sold so far, but it was for a good cause and to a good guy. I am sure they will be loved and used regularly, and although they werent "cheap" for most people, the retail was a huge number...so its cool with me. Plus hes a forum guy and professor ( or head of dept) so I am stoked he got them.

I said nothing about the oddball selling the oddball items. How do you know I am not having a pants free day this end  :-DD

So often people over price old boat anchors because of the brand on the box irrespective of external condition and even if it works and are happy to see them just go round and round on evilbay because 'someone' will buy it.  :palm:
