Very good tweak of oscilloscope
Kinnar   12/25/2013 2:36:33 PM
This is really a very good use of old oscilloscope (If you still have working old oscilloscope!!!). The webpage explains it in a very nice manner along with the required firmware for a specific oscilloscope model and brand listed. Yes if more people will contribute the will of supporting models will go on increasing!!

Heathkit coming back?
betajet   12/23/2013 5:18:06 PM
Amazing!  Heathkit coming back is hard to believe, but I'll certainly be interested in hearing more.  I'm wondering what products in kit form can possibly compete with mass-produced electronics?

Hmm, I just thought of one... electric vehicle kits and retrofits.  This kind of gets back to Heath's original product: an aeroplane in kit form.

Old oscilloscopes
Susan Rambo   7/17/2013 12:27:39 PM
Sounds like a good project to do with kids, but once it's done, you have a big clunky clock. Maybe the oscilloscope is more interesting as an oscilloscope than a clock. But again it's not about the final product....

Max Maxfield
Well, I have to admit that I have a great big Cheshire Cat-type grin plastered on my face at the moment, because the prototype for my Vetinari Clock project is now well underway.
