I spent the evening having a chat and look at old equipment for sale at the ARNSW clubhouse:
I was only after one bit of equipment, but I went a bit googly eyed and couldn’t resist getting some other cheap bits while I was there.
- Spiffy antique rack case
- HP 5372A frequency/ time interval counter (The only thing I was actually planning on buying)
- Three GPS disciplined oscillators
- HP GPIB programmable 50V/2A power supply
- Two rubidium atomic clock units (already passed one on to a friend)
- Old style display unit (predates 7-segments) that has individual bulbs and projectors per digit per number
- decade resistance box
- milk crate full of blank copper clad PCB material for making circuit boards
Not bad for an evening’s work. Now to paint and clean up the rack a bit…
OK, I see what you mean about the sloping front – that is quite a nice rack.
And thanks from a grateful friend 🙂
