I was grateful, to be sure- but indeed it fell from the sky. Well- working hard and having a good attitude towards the customer helped!

I was doing some flood-related demolition in a Toronto home over the last 2 days. I went into the customer's (80+ year old fellah) little hobby room and saw some electronics related stuff, including the oscilloscope. 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.
