Thanks for Paul
 
Thanks to Paul (Sherwin) for the bag of shake-proof / serrated head screws.

They are helping me to repurpose some scrapped computer hardware as a case for a project.

H!

My grateful thanks to MotorBikeLes for furnishing me with the TQ Manuals I was desiring and the chance to get a really nice TQ CT71 in lovely (not far off mint!) Condition – I've got quite a few Scopex and Dynamco that need their T.D.'s looking at, so I can set up the CT71 to check them on a suitable max current setting (I believe most are about 4.5mA!)

Another reason I wanted a DM63 was to see about a replacement circuit board for the trigger IC, altho' there are still a few TQ ic's floating about they're getting scarcer!

With this in mind, I'm going to have a go myself at this project over the next few months!

Thankyou Norman for the Numitrons and Nixies received today. Much appreciated. If i find that i don't have the necessary grey matter to build these up into clocks or coherent displays i will pass them back into the forum at the same price.

Many thanks to all that have given me help and advice and assisted with parts and accessories over the past months.

This includes all of the help with serial numbers of my Philips tape decks also help sourcing new/use magnetic tape (including spare parts).

Also the old radios that were donated, further to my post for suggestions for other projects.

Without your support, help and encouragement I would be struggling.

Attached is a picture of the base to my Bush PB. 12 which I have sprayed black as I couldn't find a black wood stain dark enough.

Some great advice from Dave regarding routers, cutters and grades of plywood.

Thanking you all again.

Hi!

My thanks to Member PinŲrkel (Denis) for all his hard work on the TQ D755 manual and all his tips and tutorials, in particular how to make high quality PCB layout diagrams like you get in original service manuals – this was something I have tried like the Vintage British Drawing Lettering project, but couldn't get a good enough result with my own skills on their own!

And thanks to Vinrads (Mick) who found me the pot I needed for my Bush VHF61 restoration, and sent with it some very useful spare knobs for that set. He refused to accept payment, even for postage. Now that’s very much in the finest traditions of this forum.
Thanks Mick!

Only just discovered this thread. Thank you very much to Chris (unitelex - Manchester) who fixed my very first set last year, a pilot u650. This was my first foray into vintage technology and I've never looked back since.
Would not hesitate to recommend.
