I find the saying "X puts their pants on one leg at a time, just like everyone else" to be ridiculous. I hate putting on pants that way. Just sit on the edge of the bed or a chair and stick both legs in at the same time. Apparently this makes you a super person or something.

In addition to the repairs to the HP4935A, I finally made myself a little interface box with banana jacks / binding posts. Finding new bantam plugs or adapters that aren't astronomically priced is nearly impossible. This will let me connect the test set to whatever I might want to test, without so much bare wire and clip leads 😀​

There are three posts for each side (transmit/receive). A pair to make up the line and a third that is the shield of the cable.
