Re: Back feet for 335 scope

John Clark
 

A while back I found a guy named Bob Haas, who was selling molded 400 series feet on eBay, try and make up some 314 feet (same as the 335.) I sent him a couple of feet and he made a couple of sets for me but he said they were too hard to make and weren't of the quality he could sell. I'd be interested in how this goes and might be interested in a set myself.

Thanks,
John Clark

Hi Jeff,

Are you N0dy? If so, I just emailed you about your 400 series feet.

If your process is nondestructive, maybe we can get Lee H. (on list) to
volunteer his one surviving complete foot for measurement...

I have a picture of the foot, upon which I have drawn (crudely) the
measurements, that I will put that in my folder on the server:

https://groups.io/g/TekScopes/photo/33014/2?p=Name,,,20,1,0,0

If it comes to pass that Lee would allow you to measure and print out
feet... he should probably be the one to receive your kind offer of
printed feet, not me, but I would buy a set from you.

I'd be willing to undertake the 3D modelling and printing with a durable nylon material if I could get my hands on a reasonable existing foot to take measurements from. I've already developed models of 465/475 and 453/454 feet that are near identical replacements for the existing feet.


In exchange for the use of your foot, I'd be happy to provide a set of nylon printed feet gratis to upgrade your existing feet. I would then make these feet available to the community through the same channels I use for my 465/475 and 453/454 feet.


PM me if interested.

Hello all,

The feet on the rear of my 335 are crumbling apart, literally!

I talked to Walter at Sphere and he has nothing even close, and searches
on the net reveal nothing... so, I am coming to the group to see if
there might happen to be someone who has any extra rear feet (Tek PN
348-0425-00) or even just one, that could be spared (or loaned?) to me
as an example of a complete foot? I don't know if they could be 3-D
printed or cast, but I don't have even one that is complete... mine are
all crumbled.

Here is a picture of what it looks like (borrowed from the internet):

Re: Back feet for 335 scope

 

Jeff, the foot is packaged up in a USPS Small Flat Rate box. Hopefully I will remember to mail it tomorrow and you will likely have it Monday. You should have received an email from the USPS with the tracking number; if not yet then you should when they have the package. Just remember to save my shipping label for the return address.

Now to find a source for 2445 and 2430A feet....


Re: SG505 Output voltage too high

 

Hi Rick,
This would be a much cheaper, do it yourself, alternative that would take you a few minutes to make.
Buy this resistor and put it on a dual banana plug:
Through Hole, 1W, 600ohms, 1%, $0.25 each, Mouser #71-CMF60600R00FKR6

The simple answer to this is that unless the output is terminated with 600 ohms it will be +6dB too high. Get yourself a BNC Y attachment and a 600 ohm attenuator from BroadWave Technologies, and be calibrated forever afterward!

Re: TekWiki Helper Idea. Brainstorm or Washout?

Siggi,

At the bottom of Håkan's page that I linked in:

"NOTE: Since my Microfiche copier recently broke down I will not be able to provide any scans, at least not for some time.
This message will be removed if and when I either have it repaired or acquired another on.
Updated Feb 27 2018"

His webpage says that he does have additional information that he hasn't scanned and uploaded, but it looks like that process is on hold until further notice since it's all on microfishe.

In the meantime, I'll keep searching for more databases of documentation in hopes of finding something that lists the options for various pieces of equipment. I know that's precisely what we're looking to accomplish on TekWiki, but my guess is that someone's already done exactly that or at least started to. Otherwise, it's on to catalog surfing and seeking out "with options" service manuals to reference, which is going to be extremely time consuming.

Brian


Re: TekWiki Helper Idea. Brainstorm or Washout?

Siggi
 

Hey Brian,

Håkan is a member here - at least he was before the relocation to groups.io.
He's frequently helped out other Tek enthusiasts with this and that,
sometimes by consulting his microfiche stash. Maybe he has summaries of
instrument options in his stash.
We might ask, I guess.

Hey Francesco,
well, now that you know the resistor values for sure, the next step would
be to measure the voltage drop over them in-circuit. I'd suggest leaving
the scope running for 10-15 minutes before you do so, as it's easier to get
consistent measurements that way. Alternatively you could short the
slow-start capacitor to get a consistent measurement in the stone-cold
state.

If you measure and report the voltage drops over R1994, R1881 and R1992, we
can do a bit of math and see whether the currents make sensible values.
Is it reasonable for you to do this with the grid bias pot at min and max
settings?

Note that resistors can go wonky in weird ways. In my 485, I found a
resistor that measured in spec on my DMM, but had voltage-dependent
resistance in circuit. A bit of a head-scratcher that one :).

This is such a common malady that a few people have developed
replacement feet.

One reference is https://groups.io/g/TekScopes/message/144184

And I've bought a few sets from Fred Usack on ebay, and can vouch for
him (I don't know if he is on TekScopes):


https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tektronix-465-475-a-b-Custom-Machined-Replacement-Cordwrap-Feet-Set-4-pieces/183085613848

These are for other models, but given some basic measurements, Fred (or
others) is likely able to produce feet that are compatible with your
model, even if not identical to the originals.

Why not "print" a foot and use that
to make a mold. Then you can cast
them in more robust material.

Someone with a bit of 3D modelling ability and an original foot should be
able to craft a suitable replacement for the 335 too. Printed in something
a bit more durable would work and even if they weren't as good as the
