I used to be into collecting Heathkit ham radio and test equipment (mostly picked up at flea markets), you can see some of them in older pictures of my "shack".
My original intent was to restore them all to "out of the box" condition, but them I got interesting in working with newer stuff (aprs, PIC, PICAXE and Raspberry Pi) so sold most of the heathkit stuff on eBay.
Here is a presentation that I did March 13, 2003 at the London Amateur Radio Club on this topic.
