Re: Tek power cables, older equipment

I just go to Walmart and buy a 25 foot 3 prong cord, cutoff 5 or 6 feet or
what ever I need at the female end put on a male plug and a female connector
on the other piece of the cord and have another extension cord.Trim the nud off and sometimes a little bit on the corners of the female connector.

Hi Sean,
David Holland beat me to the punch. The air conditioner extension cords sold by Lowes are a perfect solution once you shave off the little nubbin on the female end next to where the D-shaped earth connector is. They come in many different lengths, they are inexpensive, and you can buy them in almost any hardware store beside Lowes.

I wish everything was this easy to replace on Tek equipment.

Something like that works on my 184 & 106....

May have to trim off the little nubbin on the female end, but it works well enough...

For instruments like the 114 pulse generator, 184 time mark generator,
and more. Does anyone know of a good place to either get these power
cables? I have one, that came with my Type 114. With a 184 on the way,
I'd like to find another.
