Re: Tek 2215


Not forgetting the Vertical amp in the 7904 which has two *very* marginally
specified 1W resistors snugged right up the to the PCB, and which are almost
always out of specification.

Maybe mounting such resistors directly to the board was part of the
new low-cost process Tektronix was using for the 2213/2215 scopes? All
of the boards apart from the preregulator add-on board
made from a single panel which was snapped apart after soldering and
all of the components had
leads clenched to hold them into the boards during the wave soldering

Nope - the 7000 series is exactly the same. Main culprits are the x
amplifier in most, and HT resistor stack on the 7704A (Tek changed the
design of that many times - earlier versions carbonised the PCB).
