    hey guys

    long time lurker on TDH !

    looks like i might be able to begin a project sometime this year !

    I'm UK based, and i come with an offering (im away i currently cant acess the cargo hold, however i have acess to some old electronic stock, and i wonder if anyone has any use before it gets scrapped !

    let me know either way, i havent had time to search but some of the buttons etc just look around that era of sci-fi prop building use, so i thought i'd through out the offer pics:





    more to come just a bit later !

    i'd say around 10, not really looking to make cash just to help somone out !, but shipping charges would be the main hit, depending on how you want it

    I can strip the facia (then ad 5 to the item cost) and get a shipping price ( i'd imagine under 10) so rough total of around 20/25

    but to ship the whole unit would require a little more research (probably 20+ unless you wanted to pick it up in newcastle haha!), to my knowledge it is still in working order, but I can retest ( as it may color your decission on how you want it (i.e facia or whole unit)

    i'd imagine cost of the full unit + shipping would be around 30-40



    would be quite easy to set up an oscillator on one of the channels to make it appear like somthing was happening, unless you just wanted the guts ^^

    anyway .. unit #2 and #3:

    Ooh I want that oscilloscope so bad... But shipping to Canada would be astronomical. A great offer that I have to pass up.

    Its interesting how the shape of the "number counter" looks like the keyslots of Boba's helmet if you rotate it to straight up/ down. Its curved too.
