    Nothing. I would save it until I actually needed something. John

    I have not built a nixie clock for awhile.
    that would about cover the cost of the components.

    yeah, i would build a nixie clock and power supply.

    i will pm you my mailing address for the 150.

    thanks!

    If I had none, I would get an o'scope. Analog or digital.

    If we are talking about where I am now, I would get a better function generator.

    There is always something I am convinced I need. That's about $235 CDN. I just spent that much (or a teeny bit more) on re-stocking my transistors. I cannot begin to do justice to the list of items that I could twist my arm to buy if I had $235 lying around colleting dust.:)

    A couple of nights at a nice hotel.....

    Not for me, but for the other half. Whilst she is there, I can get into the workshop and have fun.

    I love her so much really.
