Re: chinese witches hats for old probes help
Hi all..toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
This is my report on the chinese witches hats.
First my thanks to all who replied. No-one was able to say for certain if they would fit my probes.
I ordered six of the widely advertised ones
(6 New Probe Hook (Gray) for Tektronix Probes, P6139A, P6138A, P6109, P6105)
from seller sharpseller2000. The price was £11.26 delivered.
Ordered on 19 March, delivered in two packages, first on 29 March and the other a couple of days later.
I have no genuine Tek ones to compare.
They are made of two plastic parts, the metal hook and a spring.
There is no earthing part inside. I expect the genuine ones to continue the probe earth sleeve some way inside the hat.
The fit to all the probes listed in my original query below is satisfactory. The inner plastic sleeve fits on the earth sleeve of the probe quite firmly.
I dont think they would have lasted many days on Jim Williams' bench but they are going to be good enough for me for now.
I recognise and understand their limitations and am happy with my purchase.
I hope this helps others.
