Sell my old oscilloscopes
More surplus junk to get rid of...

Years ago, when I was playing in a band, we played a lot of bar gigs. Several of us noticed that people (especially in the front rows) seemed to stare in an almost hypnotized fashion at all the little lights and such bouncing around in our rack, showing the various levels on the compressors and signal processors and the like. At the time, my employer was a company that manufactured commercial antennas. They decided to have a “garage sale” to clean out some of the surplus equipment from the engineering department, and I thought that the oscilloscopes they had would make interesting additions to our impromptu light show. I bid on them and got them for about $30, if I recall correctly.

Shortly thereafter, the band broke up, and I had a pair of oscilloscopes sitting down in my storage unit. Since I haven’t played in a band for years now, and since I have no other use for these things, I think it’s just about time to part with them. It’s hard for me to part with things, being the pack rat that I am, but I’ve got to draw the line somewhere…

This weekend...

I’ll try to get a picture. Frankly, I doubt they’re worth shipping halfway across the country. I was planning to sell the pair for something like $40, but I’m guessing they’d probably be something like $100 or more to ship. If you or your friend did want them, I’d pretty much just charge whatever UPS charged me to get them there.

I was thinking that you could probably find something compatible cheaper on eBay or Craigslist, but I just took a look and most of the old scopes on eBay are going for over a hundred bucks each. So maybe it would be worth shipping them. In any case, I’ll plug ‘em in and see if I can take a picture or two…

Aww, I did not even think about how much shipping costs would be. Oh well, thank you anyway! Hope you had a nice holiday weekend!
