Every timelab needs a time interval counter. I'd say look for a HP 5334B
with option 010. I've picked up two from ebay for about USD100 each, and
that comes with a decent 18011. After that, watch your cash disappear as
you discover a need for faster/better/more accurate instruments, not to
mention better and better oscillators..
