Hello George Marsh,

You have a lot more diverse experience in the electronic field then I do. I mainly learned by doing. As I stated many times, a lot of smoke got out many many times. I do have a question for you though. Is there a place i can send my Simpson 260 for refurbishing? I guess they still make them?. Mine needs a good calibration and new leads. The movement maybe bad, it won't zero on the bench. I had a resistor issue awhile back but that was resolved. I do have many used diodes capacitors and resistors. Zener diodes,555 timers, chips, power mosfet transistors. All collected through the years as well. I do have a TV repair by Art Margolis I think maybe 1969. I used to go to Radio Shack or 7 11 test tubes. Now I'm showing my age! Heath kit Co. ring a bell?

Yes, Heath Kit, Radio shack. Simpson 260 series 2, had one, very expensive and state or the art in the day. No idea where to get one repaired. I think I've heard JohnT mention using one, he may know.

I have many free digital HF VOM's. They are throw away meters. Accuracy is not a big concern. Connect a Simpson 260 to 220 volts while on the ohm scale and you just fried it. Today's digitals are a little more forgiving. I do carry an old analog RS VOM in the turck, just in case I think the digital is messing up, which in cold temps, the digitals will tend to mess up.

During my college days, I worked at USNAD Crane in the calibration lab. We made sure all electronic equipment was accurate. That was many moons ago.

My fingers are getting to old to put in electric services, so I hire an electrican friend to bend the big wires for me. I getting to a point in life where I'll be the supervisor, and watch someone do what I used to do.

My idea of fun is tractor theropy.
