This will not end well.


In the end, all is well.
And if it is not all well, then it is not the end.
 
:D

You can do it!  :-+

Thanks for your answer.  :)
Yes, the knob is made of Bakelite and I found one in the US. Shipping costs are really a PITA.

Is that the one you ordered for your 3460A? As it's nearly double the size of the original and is usually found as the main range selector on the VTVM's.

P.S. Here are the modifications for the H04-3460A version, they added 11 pages to the inside cover of the 3460A manual.
Argh! those damned Inch units!    |O

Why 8 casters? And is that a gas valve you're messing with?  :wtf: :horse:   I'm glad you're in Texas so the explosion will be just a whimper here.   :-DD
Because 4 wasn't enough. But there will be spares.  Yes.   Don't make me come up there!!!

Grey hair!
Who has hair?!

When it starts growing out of your ears more than on top take what you can get  :-DD

Mrs GreyWoolfe absolutely loves to pluck my ear hair.  She has actually grabbed tweezers or needle nosed pliers off my workbench to yank them.  That sh!t hurts too!!  Yes, I let her do it because she takes care of me in other ways. >:D  The way she enjoys grooming me reminds me of monkeys grooming each other in the jungle.  Thankfully still pretty good with hair on top.  It is thinning some but thankfully, no bald spots.
That which doesn't kill you still requires a co-pay.

I still have a full head of hair too. No bald spots. Ear hair? Why does that shit grow more as you get older?  :-// I have an ear hair trimmer that I use once a week to try to keep it at bay.  :scared:

Turn my head for a few hours and it's gone from extraneous hair to monacles to martians to monkeys now. I expect flinging poo next  :palm:

As suggested by Specmaster. And a damn good suggestion it was. And here's the results. A folding side table on the scope cart (trolley). I was somewhat limited in how large I could make it but it does accommodate a typical manual. But a little problematic if it has fold-outs.  :-DD

[snip]
also seems odd that hp used a bliley crystal.  have never seen one in an hp counter other than this one (maybe they were just hidden behind hp part numbers?)




It's probably not very clear from this picture in the 5221A/5321A manual but it looks like the optional time base used a Bliley crystal too.

So which came first, the Sprague Yellow Jacket capacitors or the company that makes those gauges?



David

P.S. How long will it be before your looking for one of these to check that gauge against?
