The tip of the Washington Monument, in the capital of the USA, is made of the most exotic metal of its day, aluminum.

I've bent a few beer cans, but it was longer ago than that. Machining is the reason most of us use aluminum for DIY audio, a real joy to use.

Thanks,
Chris

thats funny

I have quit a bit of power line instrumentation. So if anyone is curious, I might have measured it... ac power line-wise. Including fields with current probes et al. 'Cause learning the nature of the situation leads to solutions or improvements.
And, its my substitute investment for machined aluminium $$$.

Dick,

I am afraid that you will end up on my horrible people list along with Demian.

I used to like to think I had the most test equipment, now you and Demian might not only match me, but actually have more!

I have the Tektronix version with the current probe for power lines. It starts life as an oscilloscope and also has the meter functions.

Of course next week I plan to order some more. (New of course!)

ES

P.S. One of these days we should get into your power line filter patent with the "Z" pair of inductors and single capacitor as the basic cell.

Then I can't trade you my P6042? How about a wide band 500A clamp-on current probe? CT's? Ground -as in Earth- impedance tester?
No? Then, might as well join us.

Who else is in The Test Equipment Club?

How many pieces of equipment one has to own to be in The Club?
