This page will be devoted to the restoration of my recently acquired (February 2007) Tektronix 577/D1 curve tracer. Why a restoration?. Because it got damaged during its trip from Germany to Spain. You can see how it arrived in the first pictures.

It has arrived in a marginal packaging job (wrapped in bubble wrap and some cardboard BUT only crushed paper and a regular box externally). It seems it has suffered an large impact in a rear corner which has distorted chassis (I think only rear panel which is even cracked), smashed a lateral cover and damaged the other one. There is also some damage in the 177 fixture device selection switch (it is bent and partially peeled off). Bottom is also somewhat bent as there was no protection on the bottom of the unit, just the box :-(, but this should be restored without big problems.
