This is great to know Joe.  Just curious, 'home cal'd' 3458a sounds 
like a challenge.  When you say 2 of the AC ranges were off, which 
ones?  Do you have a variable AC voltage and frequency source to use, 
or did you use some other substitute?

With the Agilent unit DC gain needing adjustment, did the any DC or 
ohms functions read off specifications before the Agilent was calibrated?
