I bought one also. Figured it was worth $150 in educational value alone
given I've never done anything with Rb before. Hope it ends up being a good
lesson and not a bad one. hi hi

Hello to the group.
A good price but the RBs are quite old I have 4 of these units purchased at
$25 each some 4 years ago. Like the oscillator. Well worth what I paid. RBs
are OK but aged and running out of fumes. I have reheated the rb lamp and
recovered several of the units.
