I bought the grid dip kit with mine and it does work although not as well as my old Heathkit GDO does. Simply wind a coil of about 10 turns on a pill bottle and hot glue the windings. Remove the pill bottle and use an RCA plug (phono) to plug into the 259B. It requires a bit more coupling than a Grid dip meter but the SWR meter will dip when you hit resonance.
i'm sorry you don't have the experience or understanding to realize that others possess a skill set that you seem to dismiss as fantastical.
