Default Re: Ferranti 355 radiogram. PAT Test advice needed.

This is an interesting topic, I’m sure it’s been discussed on this forum before. I have read the H&S electrical /PAT requirements so I have a fundamental understanding.
I’ve never received a satisfactory answer to the question : should I “ upgrade” a vintage set in an attempt to make it satisfy PAT, or leave as original with a written statement explaining the possible hazards of using a vintage set.
When I repair a vintage set today, which is becoming far less often, I tend to “upgrade” it, if the design permits, it may be wrong but I feel I’ve attempted to make it more safe to use.
