Hi there, I’m new to the space, and since I can’t come in in person I wanted to connect with folks who have an interest (or expertise) in electronics projects. I don’t have huge amounts of time on my hands, but I would be thrilled to pick off something from the lower hanging fruit on my long list of potential projects. I have a particular interest in scientific electronics, and vintage (tube) equipment.
Personally, I would really like to get one of my broken vacuum tube radios functional, but I got scared off last time by what appeared to be a sheet of thermally insulating asbestos. I have a “variable autotransformer”, but it’s not mounted in anything yet and I don’t have a lot of equipment at my house. I probably just need to test a few resistors and capacitors to get it running again (60 Hz hum). Before it closed, I installed BNC ports on an old RF frequency generator at the space (I hate to modify vintage equipment, but I could not come by an adapter), and tested it on your scope.
I also really like things like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_OlVz95_tw
If anyone wants to nerd out in this way (remotely), please let me know!
