    I remember seeing switches like that in PBX offices but I didn't do work on those switches. I did work on Panel switches, Crossbar switches and ESS switches as well as N carrier and T1 carrier just to name a few.

    I still have a dwell meter and a distributor wrench. My timing light gave out a long time ago, but by that time I didn't need it any more anyway.

    I just gave away my dwell meter and timing light when cleaning out my garage before moving to my new home. The guy was a friend who has a couple of classic muscle cars that still have the older distributor. He was happy to find them and I was happy not to have them go to waste.

    My uncle used to tell me, "You aren't old until you own a rain gauge and a magnifying glass."

    By that measure. I've been old for about 15 years.

    Hey! He is right! ;-)
