This isn't just "a Heathkit". This is a Heatkit analog computer, one of 
a number of analog computer models produced by Heath. And it is a nicely 
done article, describing a restoration and now-unfamiliar components; 
vacuum tubes not the least of them. The subject functionality itself is 
unfamiliar. Now 21st century persons have been introduced to this 1960's 
tech and mid-century analog computers. There's a companion brief article 
on earlier large scale analog computers and their role in engineering 
and science.

So persons interested in these subjects should review this article.

Regards, Herb
