I felt Jim's presence at the MIT Swapfest this morning. I found two Tektronix oscilloscopes that needed a good home, a 465 and a 475A. Ten dollars each and guaranteed not to work.
Here's the appropriate quote from page 7 of Jim's second book: "It just seems sacrilege to let a good piece of equipment die... fixing is simply a lot of fun. I may be the only person at an electronics flea market who will pay more for the busted stuff!"
While I felt no need to pay more for these scopes, I certainly knew they had to come home with me.
