It took a while, on Dec 25, 2014, I showed you a picture of my bashed Lambda power supply. This must of happened in moving. So with the advent of a few "Maker Spaces" and a brand new large lab at UTA (Univesity of Texas at Arlington) and a nice hydraulic press, I should be  able to effect repairs to the front panel and make it well almost new but I will still have problems with the meter lens as I have not found a donner. This supply has been my go-to supply for a lot of years and would like to see it continue.


Well, this is easy just remove everything and label it all. Put it between a few chunks of wood and press the crap out of it. And as we say: Rinse and Repeat, until straight. Then re-assemble, with a new binding post, knobs etc. I don't work as fast as I used to, so this blog will be posted now and as the work is done I will add photos of the gore, as I go along.

BTW: When this is finished you should not be able to tell it apart from a nice new (LOL) one. (July 11, 2018)

Thanks, Again

  • July 7, 2018 - Finished Removing Front Panels. Really torqued, Gravity is a Bitch!
  • July 9, 2018 - Front Panel is barely torqued as well, but cleaned up nicely. Needs the press, and some gray touch-up paint.


The Gore


I found this collection of HP® cartoons when HP used to sell great test gear, then as Stupid Goes.

  • HP announces strategic realignment to create an independent measurement company composed of test and measurement components, chemical analysis and medical businesses, and a computing and imaging company that includes all of HP's computing, printing and imaging businesses.
  • Agilent Technologies, the name of the new measurement company, is announced at a historic brand-identity launch event in San Jose, Calif., announced by Agilent President and Chief Executive Officer Ned Barnholt.
  • Carly Fiorina the next CEO fires most of the engineering staff to make a quick profit,  and "Sees the Oval Office", LOL
