Tektronix participated in the annual Fortive Day Of Caring and had five individuals volunteer at the vintageTEK museum (Fortive is the parent company of Tektronix and has over 20 companies/brands in their portfolio). Their efforts were greatly appreciated and helped us accomplish some needed tasks.
The museum is at capacity in our restoration storage and new donations of instruments continue to arrive. We are optimizing the available space by salvaging parts from incomplete donor instruments and recycling what we cannot use. Greg Gibson and Bob Parish helped us and we were able to free up significant space for new incoming donations. Thanks Greg and Bob!
Vintage Tektronix instruments are portable because they have handles! However, some of the vintage products weigh a fair amount and our display tables are at capacity. We are in the process of building new display cabinets with storage for some of the exhibits. This work has to be done on closed days outside under the front cover. Dan Knierim and Carl Matson braved the inclement weather to help build a display cabinet. Thanks Dan (not shown) and Carl!
Different volunteers each give tours. These tours are a bit unique due to the experience and knowledge of that particular volunteer. Gary Johnson volunteered to help us create a set of notes so we can all give a more standardized tour. Thanks Gary!
