I would like to give an enourmous if belated Thankyou to Andy (Diabolical Artificer) for collecting a Cossor Scope for me and posting it.

It was an huge effort on his part to find enough packing alone to post such a monster.

Once my current build is behind me I will try to get to grips with it :thumbsup:

Thanks Andy

Cheers

Huge thanks to 'cathoderay57' and 'dickie' for their kind assistance and generosity supplying the knobs for the Goblin Time Spot radio.

It now has 4 proper matching knobs and is another completed restoration for the collection.

It is due to the help of like minded members that this forum is such a success.

And belated thanks to Colin (UKCol) who presented me with two complete Pam TB60 transistor radios at the Harpenden table-sale 10 days ago. This followed my usual regular plea for absolutely anything Pam/Pamphonic-related.
This kindly donation enabled me to replace a damaged knob on my show model and have a good chance of making up another worker in due course.
Thanks Colin!
