I think the CRT is still good so I could make my own circuit to handle that. I like the idea of the clock myself, I've seen a few that were really cool.

It's a thing of beauty Caleb though I know there are those who will disagree.

With a bandwidth of 400 Kilocycles / sec  (they hadn't even started using Hertz then!) max 2.5 MC/s there's not a lot you could use it for now.  If it works you could make a clock of it - didn't you post an article on this recently?  Or have it on the corner of your bench displaying Lissajous figures.....

From the looks of it there is no reason it should not work, though you may get the standard problems with dry electrolytics, but they are easily replaced.

Where do you get all these lovely old things?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
