Default Re: Oscilloscope Collection / Junky

TQ D34, I always wanted one, but never saw one back then. I would find it a home if not claimed first. I gather the battery pack can give trouble, plus corrosion around PSU electrolytics.
Maybe a mod will pass on my details?
Any Mod watching?
Les.

Martin, that's a nice find, and with a trolley etc too, I'm very envious. I've been bitten by the Tek bug. I have a few Telequipment scopes on the rountuit pile but theyre just not as nice as vintage valve Tek stuff.

Mind you I'm mainly talking from a aesthetic point of view, and of coarse build quality. I can't talk about how well a lot of the scopes I have operate, as they need fixing first.

What makes a "nice" scope, and what is the absolute best scope in your collections or even of all time?

Andy.

hello Andy,

each of the old Tek scopes is a fascinating instrument, so I don`t like to specify which of them may be the "best" scope.
I you need to restorate a legend look for a triple nickel (the Tek 555)

greetings
Martin
