Chip II

Tools and Equipment

To build and robot, you need a variety of tools and test equipment.  On this page I will show you some pictures of my tools and give brief descriptions of them.
Eico 465 Oscilloscope
This is a vacuum tube scope from the '60s.
I got it for free, but have since replaced it
because I got a very good deal on a real
30MHz dual-trace scope.
JDR 2000 Oscilloscope
This is a 30MHz dual-trace scope.
One day I was looking at a surplus
electronics website and saw it listed for
$125.  My jaw literally hung open, and I
just had to buy it.  It came without a power
cord or probes, but those items were easy
to replace.
