Owner since 1960s  Time owned: more than 12 months
I was "given" a TV-7 tube tester in the 1960s, and (being an old vacuum tube man) have used it extensively ever since. Recently managed to destroy several of the readily available 1/4 carbon resistors ("pilot error"), so went through a complete rebfurbishing and calibration procedure, plus updating the data sheets.

This machine is built to Mil Specs (like a tank) including hermetically sealed transformer, NO electrolytics, and ceramic rotary switches. I've seen them go for nealy a kilo-buck on Ebay, so if you can get one, grab it. I see comments about $200 to re-calibrate it! NOT if you have any savy. Parts are still available and lots of information at EB5AGV's web site. 
Product is not in production.
