lets call this 'adaptive reuse'
I am cleaning out stuff I don't use, trying to find a good home for some and trying to find a use for others.
Has anyone found a use for a 'brand new' old blueprint machine? Teledyne Rotolite SL42/20F - rollers and heaters work well.
How about JPL geodetic antenna's (GPS L1 and L2) machined out of a block of aluminum?
I remember running blue prints on rain days, hated toing that and smelling the ammonia, definitely painful to make 10 sets of some Engineering plan sets that were sometimes 30 sheets.
The JPL antenna sounds like a cool bit of history, but my storage space is full. Best of luck finding it a new home.
Would you mind posting a pic of those antennas? I'm up to some off the wall stuff with my javad units.
At one time the Trimble folks were setting up a museum of old/odd GNSS and survey gear, they might value your JPL antenna. Sorry, I do not know who to refer you too but will ask around.
