Has nothing to do with us, but there's a very clean, minty looking hp 115AR
for sale on ebay with buy-it-now for ~US$1419. seems like something Time Nuts
aficionados would fancy. Note, the rear silver BNCs are oxidized, and no
special line/power cord..

see this item:

all the best,

Boy I have to say the front looks great. Good pixs to look at.
Price not exciting at all. But maybe someone has a spare kilo-buck.

Definitely spendy. Is the 115 as noisy as the 113 (similar but w/analog
clock)? Wonder what *les douanes* would charge to get that back into USA?
Could you claim an exemption because it was Made in USA?

You don't have to use the long link. Just search eBay for item
#232426132876.

It's pricey because it is from one of those resellers of surplus
laboratory equipment. Who was that outfit in Texas?

The front picture reveals that the desiccant is saturated (indicator is
pink). Rear view shows blackened silver BNC connectors. These suggest
that the instrument hasn't been reconditioned to merit that price. OTOH
it could be R@@RE.

Owned a 113B a few years ago. The 1 KC stepping motor does scream. Doubt
that there's a motor in the 115.

Would be interested in a repairable unit to measure my declining years -
not for resale.

If the 115 has no motor (and I'm not questioning you, Bill) what moves the
"digital" numbers? It looks like a clock drive, and the 1968 HP catalog
makes reference to an "additional drum," which also sounds like a motor
drive.

The 115 does have a motor; the digital readout works like an odometer.
Here's four of many photos of a 115BR and 115CR:

exterior:

http://www.dvq.com/oldcomp/hp/large/hp115cr_1.JPG

interior:
http://www.dvq.com/oldcomp/hp/large/hp_115br_2.JPG
http://www.dvq.com/oldcomp/hp/large/hp_115br_5.JPG
http://www.dvq.com/oldcomp/hp/large/hp115cr_4.JPG

The last photo (hp115cr_4.JPG) is particularly nice.

Note also the NNN.NNN millisecond advance/retard feature. This is done with an analog phase resolver and digital turn counter.

The inside looks very much like the inside of the 113. Different layout but
similar components and, it appears, also a 1 KHz motor.
