I am currently the owner of no less than 6 vintage bench multimeters. I probably really only need 2, so I ought to let some go. I'm definitely keeping the HP 3466A (personal favorite) and the Fluke 8840A/AF (dependable workhorse). I don't know if I'll have the heart to give up the Fluke 8860A that I am fixing up, as I've grown increasingly attached to it the more I work on it. The 8860 has that space-age industrial design thing going on that floats my boat (so do the HP's for that matter). I am an incorrigible sucker for anything that looks like it could be a prop out of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
However, the HP 3435A, Fluke 8800A, and the Heathkit nixie tube thingy definitely have to go.
