Nick- thanks for the T12 tubes.
Lloyd- thanks for the VCR's, my other half's VCR refused to accept a tape yesterday so this is very timely.

Thank you to Chris (Herald1360) for the delivery of 2N3819 JFETS in the post.
Most generous of Chris to distribute these,especially as the eBay sourced FETS are increasingly turning out to be fakes.
Great gesture-much appreciated

A huge thank you to the forums transformer guru Ed Dinning. Without his experience & insight I would not have been in a position to repair the one in my Defiant MSH902.
As can be seen in the photo (black arrow) it seems as if the winding was not quite long enough so they added about a half inch!?!
Anyway, its now as it should be once again, many many thanks Ed. :beer:

A big thank you to Neil (Neil29) for the ULTRA Coronation twin R786 it cleaned up nicely and all the valves have filament continuity.

It has a nicely done period repair the Selenium rectifier has been replaced by a RS REC51 in an unfamiliar package so I am guessing early 60's

I am hoping to give it some power this week.

Sorry I missed you Neil I would have loved to have a chat about your Avengers :thumbsup:

Perhaps next time :)

Cheers
