New Restoration Projects - Ellis B-1 Bridge and TIC 310-A Z-Angle Meter

Post by Dale H. Cook on Sun Jun 29, 2014 9:29 pm

Now that I am semi-retired I have a bit more time to spend at the bench with non-work-related projects, and more time to document those projects. I have begun a series of pages devoted to test equipment restoration projects that I consider especially interesting. Each of those pages will probably take months to reach completion - these are not simple projects, and will take time for research and parts acquisition before I can even begin to go near them with a soldering iron. The tongue-in-cheek overall title for such projects is The Star City Home for Wayward Instruments:

The first two residents to get their own restoration pages are the Ellis Associates Model B-1 Bridge:

and the Technology Instrument Corp. Type 310-A Z-Angle Meter:



http://plymouthcolony.net/starcity/radios/pages/tic310a.html

Both of these instruments present challenges, and I will advise here as their restorations progress and their pages are updated.

I expect that they will go well, but they will go in fits and starts during bench time squeezed in between items that I am repairing for work.
