|Hi I'm new to the forum so please forgive me if this thread is in the wrong place.
I just wondered what test equipment people are using and how their diag, test and repair environments are set up?
Prompted by switchover of broadcast to digital I am hoping to update some of my equipment in the next year or two.
Though my multimeters and handheld instruments are up to date, the rest of my gear is quite dated; Philip PM 3217 scope, AF generator, homemade power supplies, teletest handheld colour generator.
I don't have a bench space as such and use the kitchen counter or any available surface so it's a bit of a mission setting up and putting everything away again, particularly if I need to use the 'scope. I think the scop has to go.
At work, though there isn't much electronics work and when there is it's all at equipment in situ - power drives and the like.
Oh to be at a bench with things organised.
Any equipment recommendations?
