  This is a good point, especially with a DSO. Except for the analog
stuff in the very front-end...isolation, maybe a preamp, and some
attenuator hardware...the only things that I can think of in most
simpler DSOs that might require adjustment would be the time base and
the sweep alignment & linearity stuff. Tek DSOs are pretty solid; I'd
bet that, if it's basically functional, it's in good shape.
