Yeah, that'd definitely be a bit more than I'd want to spend too...
I'm not even sure what sizes I have offhand. I think I got a 14-pin one
first, a cheap one I bought someplace in NYC, I think, and I figured I
could move that a pin if I needed to check a 16-pin part. I'm not sure if I
carried that same thinking over on the bigger ones offhand, but I probably
oughta look and see just what the heck I've got.
I haven't used 'em anywhere near as much as I thought I might, either, but
then I haven't even fired my scope up in ages now, another thing I oughta
fix pretty soon, too. :-)
