Vacuum Tube Curve Tracer: Remake of Tektronix 570

This is where we talk about testing, measuring and repairing things. Sometimes we have to repair the equipment we use to test, measure and repair other things. It's an endless cycle of fixing the broken things we need to fix other broken things.

From Elektor Electronics: Vacuum Tube Curve Tracer: Remake of Tektronix 570
The Tek570 was a huge machine weighing 75 pounds, 42 cm high, 33cm wide and 62cm deep. With modern electronics, I'm sure I can do this at a fraction of the weight. I'll use an existing oscilloscope. Maybe later, I can even measure things like transconductivity etc. automatically and display all that on an LCD display or something. But let's start with the Neptronix 570!
