Thanks to two Forum members -"cmjones01" - for the Barco CRT monitor, and especially to "dodgy-dxer" for collecting it for me from cmjones01, holding on to it for a bit, and meeting me away from his own home due to local roadworks to deliver it to me!

There are some "nice guys" left!

I have received a parcel with plenty of components: resistors, caps, transistors, diodes, LEDs, etc. This parcel was stopped in Spain for more than a year due to unlucky circumstances but it is finally in my hands. I want to thank all the folks who helped to collect all this components to be sent to me. I won't mention names to avoid the risk to forget any.

To all of you: Thank you very much

Thanks to Ken (Ambientnoise) for his BT Business Hub router which I've been having great fun investigating. He even paid the postage! Top man.

Dear Paul

I came to your site because I was looking for a solution for my VCR. The
mains supply VEK 5325 (video recorder Blaupunkt RTV 915 / Panasonic).
The good tip with the:
"You need to change the start-up cap, C9, which IS 1uF 400V you will see it
adjacent to R3" was absolutely true.

Here I would say everyone in the Forum a thank you for this help. The
recorder is working again.

With regards
frederikus

A really big thank-you to Andy (Dr Wobble) for the old oil lamp, which I've now restored. It's brilliant (literally...) Cheers!

A big thank you to Chris (Herald1360) for the Leak Delta 70. I plan to repair it alongside one I already have and use each as a check for the operation of the other. Thanks also for showing me the GEC KT88 amps (I am now just a bit green with envy though ...).

Cheers,

GJ
