Cheap kitchen carts

I used my late mom's kitchen cart--an oldie-old-cart made with white metal tubing--as a scope cart.  I still use it, though I needed to put new casters on it.  It is not light, with an HP1722 scope, '5126 counter and an also oldie-old HP3440 DMM on it.  If I only had a Rigol, I could use a CRT swing arm for sure.

I am sure there are tons of people out there who have created their own instrument cart for their engineering lab at home.  I think you should go further Martin Rowe and have a video contest where the user demonstrate how they use the instrument cart (required guidelines, no vendors); the top few winners will obtain a T-shirt or a pen from eeTimes (something simple).  The readers will be the voters.  Something to think about for the future.

I didn't mean to imply that Agilent scopes weren't good.

I guess you have a good scope. It looks like an HP, before Agilent.

Sure has been and still is a good scope. It is an HP54645D (2Analog @ 100MHz and 16 digital)

If anyone else would like a PDF of the 1998 article on organizing your test bench, I will upload it to the server and provide a link.

Yes, I was editor at T&MW "back then."  I wish my memory was good enough to remember all (most?) of the articles we ran. Thankfully, Martin salvaged the T&MW issues and has a complete archive. And probably a better memory...

Antedeluvian,

OMG, there you are on page 18! Yes, I have a copy of every T&M World from August 1992 to the end last year. I knew you in 1998? How we forget.

Would you like a PDF of the full article?
