Hi
Just caught up with this thread.
I've lots of things I've acquired from old TV shops and components I no longer have a use for. I think I understand what you want - would you like me to get a box together for you? I also have some of those cardboard RS (?) drawers with brass ring openers full of various obsolete Radiospares components. Would they be any good? Used, but of course they would be!
I have a number of 70s and 80s cardboard signs (Bush, Philips, Ferguson) in good condition that are looking for a better home. Any good?
PM me your address if you're interested and list anything else you think I might have for you.

Spot on, Glyn, thank you. I remember those cardboard drawers, I have some of the cards of parts that go in them but it's ages since I saw any of the drawers themselves. I'm thinking the RS branded items generally might look well in the 'service dept' rather than the shop counter itself, but the signs etc are no-brainers for the showroom.

I'll gladly sort out courier / postage / whatever when convenient for you and will send you a PM.

Hi Lucien,
I'm delighted to be able to send some bits off to you for your "shop" project.
- original Erie resistors in packs, in a small red cabinet,
- Pifco Meter in original, quite clean box.
If those would be of interest, I'll get them off to you, I'll cover postage. Buy me a beer next time we meet! PM me with address details.
Good luck all round!
-Jeremy

We love drawers! I have a few of those pack of resistors already, so we can spread them out into a display of their own.

Dinky Pifco meter is good too, we have two in the handling collection but not a boxed one.

PM follows.

I have a couple of eighties or maybe even seventies ever ready C cells. Understand 2 is not really any use, but if a couple of others have some too?

Ah, batteries. A whole new can of worms. TBH I don't know quite what to do about those, I think we will probably have to make some mock-ups. Sure, we have a battery collection as part of the historic collection, but few of them look new in any sense for display. But how nice would it be to have a proper Ever-ready rack with half a dozen of each kind of layer battery. Perhaps we could 3D-print some of the types that are not cardboard boxes. OK I am getting carried away here. If anyone has any thoughts on the subject let me know.

Yes, understand. But if I have a couple from that far back, that look like new (and they do) then maybe enough others do? Not even a slight sign of leakage or anything else. Only 0.06v I think! They were in a slide viewer that my parents asked me to recycle recently, two C cells and a traditional incandescant lamp. I remember the viewer last being used when I was still at home which would be eighties.

Another possibilty is that someone could 3D print some more? Maybe by scanning these? I've been struggling to bring myself to bin them given how long they have lasted without leaking compared to some more recent stuff.

Dear Lucien Nunes,

I have a palet load of vintage NOS resistors/caps etc, thousands of components and probably worth a load bucks on eBay.

You can have the lot FOC if your willing to pay for shipping.
A weight guestimation = about 40Kg.

Let me know if you want it all as it would break my heart to dispose of it all at the dump yard.

Wow, thank you for the offer... shipping is no problem, we use various couriers at work with whom we have accounts so can organise something reliable and efficient. I'll send you a PM....

Hello Lucien,

I found this in the bin at work the other day, shame it's not a box of ten.

This box does have sticky tape damage to 3 sides, but the iron inside looks unused.

Any use for your shop display? I don't think damaged packaging would have stopped it being put on display in H. L. Smiths.

Best Wishes,

Stuart.

Perfect, thank you, a great find! hadn't really started on tools yet but they are going to have to be there. Box looks fine to me for the purpose. I'll send a PM.

Would a boxed used Mullard QQV03-20A be of any use to you.
