    Agilent 66309D: Repair

    A few days ago I got my hands on a faulty Agilent 66309D Mobile Communication DC Source. To be honest, I don’t think I need it, but it was pretty cheap and I was looking for something to either repair or potentially salvage the case of. The Mobile Communication DC Source is a specialized power…

    Logitech M310: Mouse Button Repair

    For some time it became more and more difficult to get a click out of the mouse wheel switch of my old Logitech M310 mouse – inconvenient in programs like KiCAD. I also have a newer and “better” M705 mouse, however, using this one seemed to increase fatigue compared with the old M310. The mouse…

    The HP 5328 series counters are a range of 0 to 100 MHz Universal counter from the 70’s. While fairly similar on the outside, internally the updated B model differs from the A model significantly. The HP 5328B’s build quality impresses still today – even for the front panel they didn’t use plastic back then.…

    Fluke 175: Repair

    I recently scored two Fluke 175 multimeters that were sold on ebay as a set waiting for repair. According to the seller, the first multimeter was fully functional except for the beeper. The second meter had a strange error rendering it unusable, but came with a working beeper. The sellers suggestion then was to transfer…
