Grateful thanks to Clive a.k.a. MurphyNut for sending, entirely free of charge, a small Murphy knob for the Black Country Living Museumís Murphy A28 console radio. Very generous of you Clive, and it will enable the final touch to be given to a lengthy restoration project.

A big thank you to WME_Bill for taking the time to pack & send the HP 180 series extender unit, should be very useful once I've ironed out the PSU faults with my 180A scope and for the 183B scope too.

Thanks to DonaldStott for the laptop RAM. He didn't want the postage refunded, so the National Media Museum got a donation on his behalf.

Many thanks to Phil, goathanger, for sending the cassette deck.

Here, works, listening to cassettes.

It is amazing just how good a cassette sounds, no Dolby, 8 bit audio, a tape recorded in 1983 with Jennifer Rush, good stuff.

Another big thank you to Phil, goathanger. The Phillips CD player is working beautifully in my workshop system and sounding very good indeed.

Thank you very much, Phil.

Thanks to Rob (whiskas) for the Dell 1525 I bought from him back in February. Itís been a lovely project since then doing little improvements like doubling the memory, replacing the hard drive with an SSD, treating it to a new battery and installing Windows 10. Runs beautifully and looks like new - and it looked pretty good to begin with!

Hi!

My grateful thanks to "High Vacuum House" Chris Capaner for offering the 106 and 191 Tek and picking me out as winner of these, for the purpose of repairing my 545A and 465B oscilloscopes, and the tray of oddments, there's some qood–quality sharp 4mm test–prods that'll come in handy for testing PCBs at work!

I haven't tested the generators yet but they're in lovely condition!

A quick word to thank Dave (“Radio Wrangler”) for his generosity. He not only paid the full asking price for the item I was offering for sale on behalf of my favourite preserved railway, but he also added an extra donation and paid in advance of the item’s arrival.

Thanks Dave, it’s much appreciated!

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
The demagnetiser arrived surprisingly quickly and wrapped to survive being posted. I've been needing one of these for a long time. The extra was so Phil could have a pint on me (before 10pm, of course...)

Thanks,
David

Hello ALAN-G3XAQ, many thanks for the Pye Fenman,2. It works very well and I am going to have a look at the aerial arrangement. In the block of flats we live in reception seems very good but there is a feed for radios so if I am able to connect to the rear of the Fenman it may even get better.

Many thanks for meeting me last Friday regards, David Grant.

Thanks to Christopher Capener (high_vacuum_house) for first amassing a goodly collection of CRTs and then patiently proffering them on the forum- one appeared as though it might serve as a spare for my Hameg 'scope and be worth a punt and indeed proved to be an excellent order AEG unit with crisp display and oodles of available brightness when plugged in. Now to sort through the remainder of these obsolescent but fascinating relics! Thanks also for the other goodies from the loft.

On behalf of all of the 'SC/MP gang' up in the Vintage Computing section, our sincere thanks to Karen Orton for pulling off the remarkable feat of creating a one-chip VDU add-on for a classic old computer in very short order.

As with all of her previous projects, this one will be admired and used for many years to come by like minded enthusiasts around the world.

Thank you, Karen.

Big thanks to Graham (StationX) for the expert and superb machining/ tapping job on a finned heatsink for an IGBT module.

Also for going the extra distance and making stepped washers from brass.

This work is way beyond my skill level and it's great to have a result that will support the component as intended, mechanically and thermally.

My thanks to 'Shuttle', who responded to my request for wiring combs and gave me enough to fulfil my current Z80 project and more besides.

He then followed this up by generously sending me two Z80 books he no longer wanted and I will get a lot from - so a big thank you 'Shuttle'.

Many thanks to Uncle Bulgaria for the FOC Weller S1 5mm bits for SI-25.

Unfortunately they are too small for my Weller iron, I will try a couple of ideas to make them fit, if no good I will offer them FOC.

Hi!

My joint grateful thanks to Members "G6ONEDave" and "Mikeymushradio" who are supplying the Bush A823 Service Manual I desired – I'll be starting a thread when I get round to the set next year once I've got my PM5518 repaired to provide the u.h.f. 625–line output (set is stored in lockups) – it's appears to be a late touch–tune model, and the main problem is all the wiring has been munched by our very small furry p.v.c. loving friends, this is the sort of job where you want a full S.M. to hand rather than circuits on their own!
