Many thanks to frankmcvey for the four contact file holders that safely arrived yesterday.

As I do not really need all of them I will PM DigitalNoMore (Jerry) to see if he would like two of them (at no charge), as he was the second responder.

Hi!

My thanks to Paul (wd40addict) for the Solartron A100 Original Colour Printed Manual he generously sent – my eyes have got to the state where "Mauritron Specials" are too tiring on what's left of my eyesight (surgery still awaiting!) to read clearly!

Really need to thank unitelex (Chris) based in Altrincham who has just fully restored, added Bluetooth and completed bodywork on my late fatherís old Ferguson 3400. The whole family are amazed how it looks and sounds and Iím extremely happy with how it turned out and the care and consideration Chris has taken. All the way through he kept me up to date on how things were going and gave appropriate suggestions. Really emotional seeing and hearing it working again just like I remember. Would definitely recommend him for any restorations or repairs as he has clearly spent hours and gone above and beyond to get it working brilliantly and looking fantastic.

Thanks again Chris,
Matt

Many thanks to gridrunner (Stu) for lots more Unilab modules, much appreciated. I have accepted them on behalf of our local radio club. These days many come into the hobby with very little practical experience, these modules are ideal to remedy that.

Good to meet you in person as well.

Cheers!

A big thankyou to ValvoStef for the box of tubes.

I will be passing most of these on also FOC when I get time but one of the interesting things were the LAMBA boxes which I had not seen before.

A double thank you to Vinylspinner for the transistors and the Meters.

I will now have enough analogue meters to deal with multiple students (Grandchildren) I think its better to learn with analogue meters the constant numbers changing on a digital can be a distraction.

Those Jelly beans are absolutely ideal for small projects :thumbsup:

Thanks Nigel

A very special thanks to Uncle Bulgaria and Stockden for helping me so much with the transportation of a Akai reel to reel tape deck and tapes from Bristol to my door in Garstang Lancashire.

Great to meet Uncle Bulgaria who helped with a large part of the trip. Hugh - what a superstar! I only hope I can repay your help at some stage in the future.

Finally Ajs37 for giving me time to arrange collection of this machine. It’s gone to a good home .

This forum really proves itself as a fantastic place for meeting kind helpful enthusiasts. Thanks you
