Another catalogue for the website, published in the “Media” section under Various 60s & 70s catalogues”.
Firstly, if you’re reading this as a thread on the forum (a blog linked, thread), you’ll find it much easier to read if you view the actual blog post, all the images aren’t thumbnails there so you won’t have to do all that clicking to open images. To view the original blog post, use button under the forum thread title. If you came direct to the blog page in the first place, well ignore that advice. And remember guests and members can discuss together as any comments either on the blog or forum, bi-directionally appear on each system as one discussion.
Back to Heathkit …
As I’m sure readers of this site are aware, Heathkit was the brand name of kits and other electronic products produced and marketed by the company from 1947 until 1992. Their products over the decades included electronic test equipment, hi-fi home audio equipment, television receivers, amateur radio equipment and other electronic modules. All were sold for assembly by the purchaser, though many could be bought at an extra premium, fully built.
Finding Heathkit equipment on e-bay or boot-fairs all these years later will reveal various levels of competence of assembly, some will be good some will be.. well not so good. I’ve not had much pass through my hands, a Valve voltmeter V-7au and a Bridge IT-28. I’ve been looking for an IM-13u and also an IM-30U, no luck thus far but you never know.
Without further ado, grab a coffee, settle down and peruse the 1966 Heathkit catalogue.
