Nice job reviewing what's inside a scope probe and creating a low cost hobby version. Most certainly, these probes should work well with the scopes you show within your article!!It is quite common to adjust the compensation capacitor each time you move or attached a scope probe to the scope. In fact, most commercial scopes provide a calibrated square wave signal source on their front panel with which to connect and perform the compensation adjustment. I would expect the variable cap will hold up just fine for the occasional adjustment needed when moving probes around.

Very nice compilation on motor technology and basic control methods. Lots of work pulling this info together! Your explanations were very clear and concise.Great background material that will help be down the rode. Thanks for sharing!!!
Thanks for your comment...I agree, pretty crude, but cheap, quick, and rugged! Take care!
Nice job man. Not the most glorious of enclosures, but sure gets the job done, is cheap, and easily customizable. I'm filing this one away as a definite use for a future project. Thanks.
Thanks for your comment. I've found this upgrade useful in that I don't get frustrated looking for the lost spindle-lock-pin anymore! Enjoy!
