Hey guys, I have a chance to pick up an old Tektronix tube oscope, that somewhat works for cheap. It's about as big as a 20"TV set. Would there be any worthwhile parts in it(trannies, etc), or would it be worthwhile to not hack it up and resurrect it?

Just looking at the inside, I see a bunch of amperex, rca, and ge tubes (preamp looking, at least), at least 1 I can see is a 12AX7...

I stripped one a while back and 1/3 (or more) of the tubes had amp potential. Definitely grab the sockets, too. The PT is ridiculous – you could use it, but it'd be at least twice as big as necessary and have about 5 times as many leads as you could use.
I saved the knobs & pots, too, but I have doubts they'll ever get used – lots of linear ones, with unusual values (for amps).

Yup, those old scopes are cool Just be careful with the PT, many of them have a winding that gives out 1500 volts or more.
