    Brad if you have schematics that would save me a lot of time right now... More from my friend in Germany... The ignition box from the ALC 909Z generates everything it needs from the 300V (tube) open circuit voltage of the power supply unit. Only the control input, which is internally...

    From www.laserfreak.de archives, I quote: " Ich hab in den letzten Tagen mal in den Archiven der anderen Laserforen gegraben und noch ein paar Spuren über unseren heißgeliebten ALC 909 gefunden. Die entsprechenden Posts (Links unten) enthalten jeweils nur homöopatische Spuren, ich fasse mal...

    I actually have full schematics, as well as a friend that used to service those. I'll call him and see if I can get you cathode numbers. Basically it is a modified ALC HGM Division 905 or 909 medical tube. (Called 909Z by the www.Laserfreak.de people) However, many of them had LEXEL tubes...

    Hi! Does anyone have any information on this laser unit? This is definately an argon laser made by ALC company for a Carl Zeiss medical machine. The test label on it tells that it had a 5W output at 30A tube current and 2W at 20A. I am particularly interested in the cathode filament voltage and...

    Greg replied to a thread CYGN-B in The Lounge
    Oscillator 1 of the CYGN-B has been assembled on the breadboard. With a variable resistor added between pin 7 and ground, the 555 appears to be functioning as a VCO, and a train of negative going pulses exists on the collector of Q2, which is the line that provides the clock signal, but the shift...

    LOL... Yeah, the model name isn't the greatest point. I'll be the first to admit that. But for a FWD sports coupe, the Probe isn't a bad platform. And, it makes it easy to talk about probelems. when something breaks. ;) The high pinion diffs are rare from what I've heard on the automotive shows...

    Show us your Probe, Brad! Show us your Probe! :):p Yes and of all the revisions of the D60 over the years, this is the "most desirable". The narrow spring pad width allows clearing larger tires without rubbing on the springs and inboard frame mounting of hangers. It has kingpins rather than...

    Nice project! Post some updates during the rebuild. I'm not an offroad guy, but even so, Dana 60's are legendary. They use them a lot on Powerblock and other 4x4 shows. My current vehicle project is restoring a 94 Probe GT. Just replaced all the suspension front and back. Next is steering rack...

    Picked up a new front axle for my big YeeYee shit box yesterday. $1800 for axles, and I only need one of them (the second was free and basically scrap). Going from a 1979 Ford F250 Dana 44HD to a 1979 F350 Dana 60. Basically the 'holy grail' of front axles before going to military surplus parts,...

    It looks like it may be a dye laser? Maybe flash pumped? I see 2 covers on the end near the lens, those maybe flash tubes. Not sure. I bet Steve could elaborate on it.

    I have often said that just about everything in music was done by about 1980 or so. All popular music since then is just a rehash of stuff from the early sixties to about 1980. I often wondered where could music go? What is left to do? Well look up Clown Core on youtube.
