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?
