Many thanks to Mike Phelan for his expert repair of a clock wheel. The part itself isn't electric but I think he deserves thanks as he has done a great job and even refused payment for the postage.

I often forget to do this so, first thank you and apologies to everyone who has helped me in the past that I've not thanked on this thread.

Second, thank you to @restoration73 for the splice tape and 8 track foil.

Also lastly, thanks to @dodgy-dxer for the Gerry Wells book.

A big thank you to Anthony for one of the pair of HP 540B transfer oscillators that were offered & for print outs of the relevant manuals, they should be a great help for getting it going again.

Also thank you to Rileyman for a pair of E1T valves & sockets, probably the closest I'll get to owning an original counter that uses them.

I second DMcMahon - chriswood1900's objects arrived impeccably packaged and perfectly safely, despite the delivery man's grumbling about their weight. I know how long packaging like that takes, and am suitably grateful! I hope the MCR21 project continues apace in the new year.

Hi!

My grateful thanks to the following Members:–

"AC/HL" Bill for the Doric Mk 1 Manual donation, I've donated the postage equivalent of this to the RNIB as I'm still awaiting another eye procedure;

"Electrical" Stan for the Doric Mk 3 Scans;

"MALC SCOTT" Malcolm for the loan (to be returned when scanned!) of Doric Mk3/4 Workshop Manuals:–

. . .to assist me with my quest in writing a brand new Dynamco Dual TB 7202 Manual!

I asked for help with these as Dynamco wrote their manuals in a very similar format and drawing style to Doric and my copies got destroyed in a lockup fire 7 years ago!

Thanks Gents!
