I would like to Thank Mike (Mikebay) for the rather nice PYE subject of this thread https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...d.php?t=124151

It was a pleasure to meet Mike and have a wander around his shack I just wish I had a few more hours to spare.

Mike and his XYL made me feel very welcome.

Thanks Mike the PYE will be with me for quite some time :thumbsup:

I am sure Mike will be relieved to hear I got back in time to prepare a nice lunch for SWMBO.

Cheers

Thanks to Bill (AC/HL) for the replacement woofer for my Omar CR251 speakers, and for taking the trouble to post it. Much appreciated.

My thanks to "terrybull" for the little Pioneer XC-L7 system I picked up today. It's a stylish mini system that sounds pretty good to my ears with a CD playing as I write. It should cheer up the sound from the ghastly speakered holiday cottage compact LCD TV no end when I get a suitable lead!

Many thanks to Richard (Mole42uk) for the V6 VVM.

Also belated thanks to Vince (FIXITNOW) for the D65 scope and to Roger (RojDW48) for the Goodmans Module 80. I had planned to put a thanks post here when I had worked on them but I'm battling health issues so things are taking longer than I expected. Thank you.

Thanks from me to 'terrybull' as well, for not only sorting out and sending us a really nice ipod dock but actually fixing it as well after it failed a pre-despatch check.

I'd like to thank Glyn (Welsh Anorak) for sending me the Roberts tech specs and trader sheets. Really nice to have the originals. I will of course make them available to other forum members as long as it doesn't conflict with the forum rules regarding service info.

Thanks Glyn

Kind regards

I would just like to thank the kind gentleman that gave me a break and found the time to give me the advice and guidance I needed to complete my repair. I have probably aged him 10 years, I even had a bit of a telling off in red ink! But once again thank you very much - you know who you are.

Thanks to Ti Pwun, for looking after an Atari STE internal power supply for the best part of 30 years and then wrapping it very carefully before sending it to me.

Cossor 3467 restoration.

This was another family heirloom so I am very pleased to be able to report that we have it up and working. As far as I can tell it dates from 1933.

Many thanks to Ed Dinning for rewinding the LF choke for us. Thanks also to Phil G4SPZ for his advice on the smoothing capacitors.

Thanks also to Herald1360, UKCOL, Cobaltblue, Merlinmaxwell, and Andrewausfa who all contributed to the discussion and the outcome.

Many thanks,

Gary

Re: The repair of an HP LaserJet 4 printer.

My thanks go to Terry, M0TGX; Peter, Dragonser; Kalee 20; Tony Duell; David, Radio Wrangler; Sean Williams; Cheerfulcharlie; Michael, Yesnaby - and also to anyone else who I appear to have overlooked: my sincere apologies. There were so many members who offered advice and suggestions that it has been a bit tricky trying to re-trace the appropriate posts and threads.

By way of a summary report, I have made a brief thread in the 'Success Stories' section.

My thanks to Graham, Station X, re: the sale of an Eddystone 898 dial drive.
The quality of the packing was superb and in my experience, simply unprecedented: triple boxed, no less! :clap:

Many thanks to Nicklyons2 for the 2 x Musa patch panels plus a large quantity of 'U'-links, 2 x PO316 jackfields and the lacing bars to go with them. I'll have to learn how to do cable-lacing now (I knew that scanning in 'BBC ED122' would come in handy sooner or later :) )
Thank you again, Nick :thumbsup:

Big thanks to Pamphonica (Jeremy) for the wire (and the metal boxes that just happen to accept a panel mount SO259 and a BNC socket without any need for drilling - perfect for a couple of test gear projects I have in mind). Very much appreciated.
