Now I've tried it on my FG 503, I can see that it enables much better setting of the frequency.
Couldn't a static Lissajous pattern be obtained more simply by connecting the two function generators via "trigger out" and "gate in"? Maybe not....

The fine adjustment knob gives about a factor of ten improvement in the precision with which you can set the frequency measured against a DC503 counter. The only reason that comes immediately to mind is that it would help to give an almost static Lissajous figure in XY mode against some other generator. Any other ideas?
