Thanks to Studio263 for the Sony Watchman portable TV - plus a purpose-built 9v mains adaptor (very handy as 6 x 'C' cells probably won't last very long!). As hoped, it works beautifully with the Sony video camera + modulator.
Cheers, Tim :thumbsup:

Thanks to Chris (reddish75) for the BBC EP14/1P audio test set; I'm really looking forward to getting this old beauty back into full working order.
It's built like the proverbial outbuilding ... I've already got my local shotblasting/powdercoat specialists on the case (literally!) :)
Cheers, Chris :thumbsup:

Many thanks to Paul Sherwin for his expertise, help and advice about getting my YouView recorder to receive live internet streaming (Sky channels) over WiFi, rather than using horrid power line adaptors. This involved a big learning curve on my part and significant correspondence on Paul's.

I'd like to add my thanks to Guy for helping shift such a lot of this stuff, and to everyone on here who has helped by buying something. I wasn't entirely sure I'd not be left sat on a huge pile of gear with worthy intentions, but not much to show for it!

Can I reiterate my thanks to Bill (WME_Bill) albeit rather belatedly, for the copy of the user manual, circuit diagram and notes on the Linstead M2B millivoltmeter that he sent me - back in November 2007! I have just got round to fully fixing the meter. Thank you again Bill.

Many thanks to electronicskip for sending the Bang and Olufsen MMC cartridge to me completely free of charge. My Beocenter is now back up and running thanks to electronicskip. I'd also like to send my thanks to radio wrangler who very generously gave up his 1st refusal. He discovered I had enquired about the cartridge too, very kindly he said my need was greater than his and asked the cartridge to be sent to me instead. The kindess, and generosity of the members of this forum never ceases to amaze me. I've always been given help when I've asked and when I was a newbie the members patience with me was fantastic. I've only ever received help and support and good advice from this amazing forum. It was so kind for member electronicskip to send this cartridge free to me when it can fetch such vast prices being sold elsewhere. It's so nice to receive all the help you need where people are genuinely interested in your projects and keeping vintage audio alive without blatant profiterring. Many thanks to both of you.
Regards,
Dave.

Grateful thanks to Bill (AC/HL) and Roger (G3VKM_Roger) for their kindness in providing me with three Plessey 7-way sockets (a.k.a. Pye 'Westminster' power connectors).

I'll be putting them to good use with some audio test equipment I'm restoring (pics to follow in due course via the 'Success' thread).

Cheers! :thumbsup:

Many thanks to Red to Black for the circuit diagram ( https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...sonic+NV-SJ220). it was my late dad's P& J, something I'd like to keep till it's beyond redemption . Every time I look at it, reminds me of the joy I got from telling him which button on the remote to press to correct something he'd done due to poor eyesight.

A huge thankyou to Ed Dinning for the lovely box of valves he sent me. Not only did Ed reply to my wanted post very quickly, I was sent more valves common to that type of set and all of the valves were carefully tested and labelled accordingly. I can go on with the rest of the work knowing I have a good set of valves to complete the job. Many thanks Ed you have been a true gent and a massive help. It was very kind of you to test and send these valves to me.
Dave.
