Re: Funky Fie-Dolla Flook (8860A)

A reasonable haul, with the Fluke the pick of the catch. I've got a Micronta FET multimeter like that which came from a swapmeet for £5, because I hadn't bought anything else. There was the consolation that it had good batteries (the 9V battery would cost at least £1) and it came in its original bo...

I see you got one of those butt-ugly 'shuttlecraft' Flukes, too. Gonna paint it Tek blue, or is that going to remain purely Mike's shtick? :D -Pat We discussed that at some length in the Discord while I was there and afterwards; consensus is it needs to be candy apple red... or satin black to fuck ...

Actually, that was a real live Edison cylinder dictation machine - the horn at the end of the long tube was for speaking into (probably closer to shouting into); it then recorded onto a wax cylinder. Basically the early memo machine for a secretary to type letters from. The cylinders could be reuse...

I have several hand trucks, including one of these which I did in fact use to move my own stuff to and from the car.
