Thanks to @mole42uk for the Gould 3000 'scope which I picked up yesterday it's working just fine - today I used it to confirm that the Lockfit transistors in a Roberts R707 were well past their best!!

Hi!

My grateful thanks to David Taylor G4EBT for the non–working Curve Tracer project built in a lovely little wooden box and a beautifully lettered panel, I shall enjoy looking at this and writing up Part 14, Chapter 182 of my T & M Theory & Repair Book!

(Book on hold because our heating has broke down and my fingers get too cold in our front room in the present very cold weather!)

My grateful thanks to Bill Nichols "WME_Bill" for satisfying my curiosity about the SE Labs SM112 Oscilloscope by allowing me to purchase his, it arrived well packed, in completely satisfactory condition, and once I've run an up–to–date "Autocal" on my PM3394 I'll put the SM112 at work on my project bench!
