Andre the Chemist is talking Lab Instrument Nostalgia at his blog. I know what he means, but mostly, when I think of old equipment, I'm just glad that I'm not using it any more. I remember, for example, the JEOL NMR machines with the blue screen and light pen, and a water-cooled 80MHZ NMR made by IBM, of all people. But if I saw either of them today, I would react with a sort of interested horror.
Update: a little searching around brought me this picture of the IBM machine. Check out the cool 1980 tech!
