I didn't mean to clutter up Quincas' thread with the scope conversation, but I'd love to hear more about what test gear people use.    

I've recently gotten back into kit building, and Quincas' video on the kit scope looked fun and useful -- Do people have other equipment that similarly fills a similar purpose that is worth its while? Space is at a premium in my apartment, which is why I'm interested in hearing about these small kit things.  I don't have much room for a dedicated test bench!


Steve's comment about the DSO112 <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGU9LoEpQFw>   brought me further down the rabbit hole.  


What's everyone use?
