Hello to the group.
For whatever reason I have resurrected a 1967 HP 5245L counter. Indeed I
have many newer units.
But there is something about that nixie tube glow.

Anyhow as good as HP is, I found interesting failures. Infact simply the
gold leads on the transistor rusted/rotted off.
That was most of the issues. Aside from the fact someone really hacked this
beast to death.

Its looking pretty good at this point, though I do have several nixies that
are troubled.
