I'm that nut! :-)

For the price I paid on Ebay (the square root of original price!!!) I am very
pleased. It came in the original box with the last calibration papers
(naturally out of calibration date).

The Wavecrests are wonderful tools, but they address a different problem than
what normal time-nuts usually care about, so they are not a given perfect
counter for long term comparision. It is aimed at jitter. That's what I use it
for. Infact, I find that I use it more at work than at home, but it blows the
competition out of the water at work so... :-)
