Technician (or technician finished product[1]) is a period-5 oscillator that was found in January 1973 by David Buckingham.[2][3]

The name "technician finished product" comes from Lifeline, where there was a graphical mistake in Lifeline Volume 8 that was fixed in Lifeline Volume 9, so the "finished product" part comes from the fix.
