The auction includes both analog computers that Heath made, the very large ES-400(H-1) and the educational EC-1. Both seem to be in very good condition, but the starting bid is $4000 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/124818750336

And it is very heavy, the ES-400 is almost 170 pounds. Going to require some special shipping unless you are lucky enough to be local.

I am actually fairly local to Apple Valley (barely an hour away...). I would love to have them but for the following issues:

1. It does not come with the IO-10 Oscilloscope. (My first scope was an IO-10)
2. My wife would damage me (mentally if not physically) for bringing home something that large and obvious.

<Sigh>

That's an absolute beauty, looks like a beautiful restoration job!

We have an H-1 with all the trimmings at LSSM. It hasn't yet bubbled
up to the top of the restoration queue; we currently have an EC-1 on the
bench.

I have a Heathkit scope of that era somewhere in storage. The next
time I'm on that floor I'll look for it; if it's an IO-10, I would be
happy to send it to you.

This must be the one that was written up in Nuts and Volts. An amazing restoration job.

Yes, it is the ones from Nuts and Volts, the seller mentions it in the item description.
