I now have a new work bench, and added some more test equipment.
I showed my new work bench here on our forum, and now I added a Sencore cricket transistor tester. it does seem to work, and I only paid $15 + shipping. I have a PDF manual so I can at least test the power supply and it only has two I.C.s that are very common. It works!bounce

Nice assortment Cliff.............

Now, the question is, what piece of equipment are you missing that you still want to add to this collection?  Very Happy Very Happy

I would like to get more updated equipment, but those with manuals would be a priority

Edited 01/22/2017

TV- 7/U, I now have, but needs calibration.

An HP- synthesized signal generator with sweep for IF alignment. (solid state) got it now!
 Tek digital storage Scope with direct reading frequency, voltage etc.. I saw one on YouTube that had a set of moveable traces for marking upper and lower voltages and frequency being measured.

I guess an electronic load would be nice also.

Some of the test equipment I have is being slowly overhauled, modifying and repairs needed. but without the manuals it slow going.

My needs are few! Crying or Very sad Rolling Eyes bounce

I now have a HP 606A Signal Generator but it needs some work, as the modulation meter when powered on sets @45%. (found info from a friend that it might be the bridge circuit) I will find out later.
Edit- found that may be the limit for output per the manual at higher freq. 01/22/2017

Also When testing the tubes, I found out in the process my B&K 747 tube tester isn't working right, so another repair I Have started to deal with simultaneously.

I started to Work on my RCA WR49A Signal Generator. Replaced the cut off power cord and hooked it up to my GR-Variac, slowly took it up and no tubes lit up and the darn pilot is blown. I did a few ohm tests to the power transformer and so far nothing spectacular. I did test the two tubes Filaments and there OK. I decided to get the manual off the Web, but no such luck.
At least not for Free.
So I rearranged the search and added a dash between RCA and WR49A (RCA-WR49A) to my surprise the RCA Electronics course showed up. Hmm that's not what I wanted, but out of curiosity I opened the PDF file. LO and Behold a description of the controls and operation AND a Schematic.

I tried to save it and it wouldn't allow that so I tried printing it, In the process of printing I sent the task to a program I use quite frequently Called CutePDF. It asks the location you want to send the PDF file to. So I designate to the desktop. It worked, I opened it up and now I can do a regular save. I did notice also the have a three other Generators listed and discussed in the same booklet..
RCA model 706A
Hickok model 288X
RCA WA44A
All with instructions and Schematics.
This was found in the booklet titled:

Electronic Fundamentals, Service Practices 31(study Group 16)
AM and FM Signal Generators.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Remember how I told you how to save it or print it to keep a Pdf file, you could also print out your own copy, Which I will do too.

I will set that aside for now but I was just going to sell it as Is, but I decided to fix it first, IF I CAN DO SO.

I forgot to mention Here that I am getting a TV7 tube tester, I know I mentioned that before, but just in case, I am excited as you can tell.

Received cheers

Now I will go through it, It has to be tested then voltage checks done. Haven't had the time yet, it requires a 1Kohm/per volt VOM. My friend has loaned me one, so one of these days.

Cliff,
When I get the new shop area done and the manuals finally sorted, I likely have many of the manuals for your equipment that you need, & could make copies for you.

Progress has been very slow on the new shop area because of life issues and damaged disks in my spine.
 I made the mistake of lifting some drywall sheets and really set myself back. Didn't even make any of the local hamfairs this year.
