I picked my TEK 2465B out of the surplus pile at work. About $20 worth of caps and a fan later, I had it fixed. Now, probes are another story. TEK P6139's are not exactly cheap. I think I ended up shelling out $150 for two of them on ePay. Given that they're $400/ea from TEK I figured I'd done a decent deal...

For PCB's I'd rather get on of those small dremel drill press jobbies, its basicaly a press you put a dremel tool into, the small size (you can put it in your drawer when not in use), is realy handy. they are quite pricey though at about $30 or so a pop.
BUT, it is far nicer to use on PCB's then a giant drill press. ( I also have a cheap nasty one) the runout on the drillbit is quite horrible, you set it up with the tip centered on the point you want to drill, then when you switch it on the bearings have so much play, the ti pof the drillbit goes in circles around the spot you mark. I usualy use a pin vice to make some leadholes to give it something to catch on to.
