Re: Tek Knob Project - scan and make

 

A small problem with this plan is the interior of the knob, which is a METAL (aluminum) core, threaded for one or more steel setscrews. I am certain an all-plastic version would not work.

Not Tek, but scopish, and interesting...

 

I have broken up a few Data Check multiple rack mounted scopes. These amazing arrays provide up to 7 plug-in scopes in a single rack unit, very interesting little gadgets. they were used to monitor missile telemetry and other many-source lab functions. I am hoping to find a manual for the 1200B version, any luck out there? no web stuff was located anywhere. 7 scopes with full controls in 5 1/4 inches of rack space is pretty impressive.

I use these just for the CRTs ( a rare by very handy miniature rectangular AEG D7-233GY), and scrap all the rest. If anybody wants the little scope assemblies to use with other CRTs, let me know. I can make that happen. Some amazing through hole assembly and packaging in these babies.

Thanks to the hard working Dennis for moving our group to a new home!
all the best.

Re: c-12 camera

Chuck Harris
 

What exactly did you ask them?

They seem to have:

i-type in both color and B&W
600 in both color and B&W
SX70 in color and B&W
Spectra, though currently sold out
8x10, B&W, color sold out.

I didn't see any sign of the old roll type
of film, which would leave out any of the camera
backs that used that film.

600 and SX70 were used in lots of scope
and microscope camera backs.

Thanks for your message.

Unfortunately we can't produce these film types please we don't have the necessary machinery. As far as I'm aware, there is no one else currently producing these film types.

I'm sorry to not be able to help further here.

Thanks and kind regards,

For the group's edification, the company that had been

the polaroid brand, and intellectual property related
to the instant film, and its manufacture. This is in
addition to having acquired polaroid's last film

Most all of the polaroid film types are available new,
and under the polaroid brand.

This is as of May 12, 2017.

If you want to use your scope cameras, with polaroid backs,
you can use your scope cameras, with real polaroid film.

Now, if you could just find a camera, with the right
adapter ring to fit your scope...

What I can help with and what I can't help with

 

My apologies but I have been so focused on handling all the details of
setting up our new home that I have had no time to "Look around" at how you
get to everything.



Thank you to Craig and Dave Henderson for blazing a trail through the new
pathways to our files and photos. When I have the time I will be using their
suggestions on how to find the files, photos, and archives I am interested
in.



I can clear up a few things about what will be missing. Groups.io cannot
transfer Attachments. Fortunately we didn't have a lot of those.



This is what Groups.io did transfer

* Members
* Messages
* Photos
* Files
* Links
* Databases

Here are some statistics:

1. Total Members Processed: 8582
2. Successfully Added: 7054
3. Bounced Members (Skipped): 1432
4. Moderated Members: 2
5. Members on Digest: 883
6. Undisclosed Emails (Skipped): 28

As I learn more about the transfer and how it went I will report those
details to the group.

That's it for the moment.

Tek Knob Project - scan and make

Kuba Ober
 

Two things came to my mind in relation to the tek knobs index project:

1. Instead of taking just a few photos, a larger number properly exposed photos that cover the entire part from all sides could be used to produce a point cloud and then a 3D-printable mesh. I can cover the subscription cost of the software needed - it’s not exactly cheap.

Alternatively, manual measurements could be made for OpenSCad models - I’m sure that a lot of those knobs are slight variants and easy to model.

I can offer to process 25 knobs a month using either process, resulting in a printable STL file. Over a year or two presumably we could have reproducible models of all knobs that way. Perhaps sorting the work in order of popularity/demand would be useful.

I have 0 clue about such order and would follow whatever input the group has - as long as I wouldn’t have to decide on it. In other words: send me the knobs to process and I will process them and ship them back, but don’t make me choose them :)

2. Homemade 3D prints in ABS can be vapor smoothed and look beautiful with no other manual post-processing of the print. They can also be painted.

Alternatively, various professional printing services can print those knobs nicely from various materials, for a low cost: the knobs have small volume and that’s what mostly affects the price.


Should this be of interest, feel free to message me directly for a shipping address. I will turn around 25 knobs in 30 calendar days and will cover the cost of shipping them back.

All the best, Kuba
