Tektronix Stories From Engineers Features vintageTEK
Tektronix has a series of video stories from engineers on their website at www.tek.com/stories. Two of these video stories feature work that was done at the vintageTEK museum.
When You Were Born To Engineer - Watch Nick's Story is about a young boy who came into the museum to learn more about electronics. We gave him an extensive tour and he was enthusiastic about the technology. He wanted to build something using a CRT. Phil Lehwalder, one of our regular volunteers, took on the task of mentoring Nick. Together they built an X-Y oscilloscope using a small CRT. This video tells his story of wanting to engineer and the oscilloscope he built at the museum.
The Power Of Mentors - Watch Phil's Story is about Phil Lehwalder who mentored NIck. Phil is one of our restoration engineer volunteers and did not work at Tektronix. He loves Tektronix equipment and what the museum has to offer. This video tells of Phil's ability to give back through mentoring.
Their finished oscilloscope is in a plexiglass display case to highlight the circuitry and construction. Nick also added a LED striplight around the top.
Nick was invited to the 2019 Tektronix Worldwide Sales Meeting and interviewed by President Pat Byrne who presented Nick with his own Tektronix Oscilloscope.
