    Robot Head!!! LoL!!!
    Nice to see someone across the ‘pond’ appreciating English engineering – shame over the last few decades our manufacturing industries have been ‘out-sourced’ and decimated.

    Just bought one of these on eBay – awaiting delivery – mainly for its HV capabilities. I just repaired an Tek 7403N CRT ‘scope and this would have simplified a few things had I had it sooner.

    Very nice analogue meters. I have three, a 1953 Avo 8, a mk 5 model 8 and a mk 6 model 8. There are all very accurate on DC voltage and Current. In fact my first model 8 circa 1953 reads exactly the same as the mk 6 on both DC volts and Current. My mk 5 reads half a needle’s width low. The interesting thing is on the mk 6 those ribbon cables have vanished and the PCBs are hard wired. The mk 7 only differs from the mk 6 by additional protection diodes and fuses on all ranges. They were only discontinued in 2008 because of difficulty in obtaining mechanical parts. A British Icon indeed!

    why don’t you make a tilt stand for it

    I wish it had a tilt stand – but like all analog models, accuracy suffers when not used horizontally. As much as 5-10% error.

    Great video but I sure do miss your troubleshooting videos. I’d like to see troubleshooting using the scope.

    Well how many DMM’s read 3kv ac or dc and reverse at the touch of a button.?
