Smile Cleaning House - free stuff

Here's some stuff for free if you can come pick it up.

First up 2 scopes.


A Kikuksi 555G 7 MHZ scope. Here's the manual


A very similar Data Instruments 555/N scope. These are both hybrids using socketed transistors for everything except for two output tubes that drive the deflections plates. The construction reminds me of Tektronics.


Next up, an empty Philco 38-4 cabinet. It has a few veneer issues, but is sound otherwise. Maybe you could mount one the scopes inside




I'll be digging out some more stuff soon.

PM me for details if you're interested.
Bob

Here are some Zenith Space Command remotes. These I'm willing to ship if you cover the costs.

Sure, I can hang on to it for you.

I really like that series of Philco radios. I just had this 38-7, pictured, given to me. It's a little more than I want to tackle. The chassis will need plenty of work but could be restored...if somebody wanted the chassis out of it to fit into this 38-4 cabinet, let me know. I can't say 100% if everything will line up. If anyone local wants the whole thing, it's free.

Or, I do like the idea, touched on here, of mounting a CRT in there! Imagine what you could do if you had a VT71 with a trashed cabinet but good 7JP4.

Thanks Banderson, I'll have to see about getting that knob replaced. It will be used on a regular basis, believe me!

Bob-

Thought I'd let you know, I got the other channel on the scope working. Turns out the transistor array in channel 1 had an open transistor on it, replaced it and it works like it's supposed to. Now I just need to find another knob and long fiberglass shaft for the 'VAR' in the center.

miniman82, try a hobby shop that caters to model railroaders and look through the plastic shapes. They'll have some long plastic rods and tubes that you might be able to use. In a pinch you could use a wooden dowel.

I'm impressed! Did you have a schematic to work off of ? Was it a specialty transistor ?

Yes, I found a schematic online. I tried replacing the channel switching diodes first because it would deflect full positive when ch 1 was selected, but it didn't end up being those or the trasistors farther back in the circuit. My brother was able to scrounge up the chip lucky for me, installed it and it worked 5.0.
