    What is wrong with the internals?? I'd only make adjustments if it wasn't functioning...

    The resistor substitution box was one of the first Heathkits I ever put together. It was in the mid 70s (I think). Attached is a picture of it today. Yes, it has been through hell, I have replaced most of the resistors in it and every few years I have to hit it with a little contact cleaner. It has earned an honored place on my test bench.

    Fix it up, it will be a good friend.
