Re: Mounting and dismounting curve tracer 177 fixture

 

I have seen a picture of one. I often thought about making them myself. I have broken off those knobs several times. I am surprised Tek allowed that to be exposed. It begs to be snapped off.

The guard is just a simple U shaped piece of anodized aluminum with a hole in it. You unscrew the threaded nut holding the switch, slip the guard over the neck of the switch and screw the nut back on.

Bob,

Have you ever seen a 577/177 with a switch guard? I have heard rumors that some late model units had a loop guard over the switch to stop from getting the switch handle broken off.
