    It was a beautiful piece of technology and I can't bring myself to throw it
    out.

    If you don't, your grand kids will eventually. :)

    They will never know what it represented to you for many years. I dumped a lot of stuff recently, good bad, and ugly.

    I had walls of Electronics magazines, and it took many months posting one out to each customer, when they went out in a
    yellow or red PO bag. Don't know if they enjoyed or even read them. But I preffered to do that to dumping them.

    Cheers Don...

  3. **Why would you? I still have mine. I poured over specs for months, before I
    selected my Sanwa (50k/V) model (an AVO was WAY outside any rational budget
    in those days). Finally, on my 16th birthday, my parents spent a very
    significant chunk of money and bought me the model I wanted (with the
    leather - not pleatherT - case). Of course, it hasn't been used in years,
    but I would no sooner chuck it out, than cut off my arm or throw out my
    Faber Castell 2/83N (the Rolls Royce of slide rules).

    Have you seen the price of analogue meters? They're more expensive than
    digitals.

    The meter in the pic looks very much like the meter in a Peak multimeter
    I have had for ages

    Let me know if you want a pic, as I would happily donate the Peak to a
    good cause (for the price of postage)

    Thank you for the offer, but no thanks.
    My ugly, nameless DMM does anything I need, except to trigger floods of
    nostalgia.

    I just checked RS for an AVO model 8 Mk7 and it comes in at $2320 + gst.

    Hand it down as a family heirloom - one day it will be worth a fortune.
