    I got a BP Precision 1403A on ebay for almost nothing but there were
    no probes with it. I saw what appeared to be generic , one size fits
    all, in Jameco cat. Is this true? Or are they specific to ea
    machine?

    If you want a perfect match and performance that meets the
    manufacturer's specs then only the original equipment probes will
    do. On the other hand, a good quality after-market probe will work
    just fine, especially since the scope itself just might possibly
    not be up to original specs.

    Thanks
    I couldn't ever find the probes specific to this unit. I'll get the
    Jameco once for my 10$ scope

    Make sure that the calibration range of the probe includes the actual
    input capacitance of your scope input.
