I asked him if he was an electronics technician, and we talked for a few minutes. Ultimately, he told me it worked and he hadn't touched it in years, so (without me asking) he offered that I take it if I could make use of it.

It's not a particularly freaky unit, but it will do the job! Below is a google-sourced pic of it.

Nice!! While i don't have any electronic widgets that can even come close, I've scored some eclectic tooling of other sorts along the way, the 4'x6' cast iron welding table being one of them....

I really don't have any day to day need for an oscilloscope, other than I have an idea of what I could learn to do with one.... Maybe devino would relocate?????
