    Anyone having the _original_ manual willing to make a 600DPI (or
    better) copy of figure 4-2 (page 4-3) please e-mail to me.
    Thanks.
    ((i have a poorly rendered copy))

    Go to Tek's website and download it from there.

    I don't think that the 6015 has been available for some time. The
    6015A manual doesn't include the later sections.

    Forwarded this request to the TekScopes group.

    Don't think it'll get much clearer than this:

    Just limitations of the original...

    Just as non-useful as the modern manual that Jeff referred to.
    I need that photo of the guts.

    Thanks! Exactly what i was looking for.
    It is item #12,the spring (not summer this late in the year)
    capacitor that i am most interested in.

    Item 12, the "leaf" is actually part of the compensating capacitor.
    Attached to the low voltage end of R100, it supports a floating ring
    around the HV end of the resistor, making a fixed capacitor in parallel
    with R100.

    It looks like the bulk of the capacitance is between the suspended ring,
    and the hot end of the resistor. there's an evident attempt made to
    minimize distributed capacitance, and keep it as lumped as possible.

    If it's going to arc, or corona, that's where it'll happen. I bet they had
    fun developing that bit.

    Check; note rings used on the HV end.

    What I said.

    What I don't understand is: you said you have a P6015 yourself, which has
    lost its dielectric fluid. Why not take just it apart and look and
    measure? You've nothing to lose. It won't be any worse when you put it
    back together.

    Much better than any photo.

    Just be absolutely sure you do not touch the resistor. It will contaminate
    the surface and kill the accuracy.

    See the manual.

    Ça va sans dire ;-)
