The fumes will do for me!

I got an HP 58503A as I need a solution, not a project.

But playing with a Cs for a bit of fun/education is something quite
different. But maybe I should wait until one comes up in the UK, shipping
is going to be $300-$500.

Due to the size of the UK, there's a lot less test equipment around here
than the US. What we do have here tends to be quite expensive.
