Default Collection of mainly test gear FREE.

I have a collection of vintage electronic gear for disposal. Some items are working others may require some attention. The entire collection is free of charge... I just want all the items to go to 'a good home'. I would prefer that they all go as a Job-Lot rather than split them up. Because of the quantity, this would be collection only from Richmond in North Yorkshire.

1. Gould Dual Trace Oscilloscope.
2. 2 of self build 0-30 Volt DC bench power supplies
3. Quark PMM 330A Process Multimeter/Generator
4. Sony MX-12 6 Channel Stereo Mic Mixer Battery Powered by D cells.
5. Heathkit Digital Voltmeter Mains powered
6. Farnell 0-30v DC Bench power supply.
7. Vintage Vacuum Tube Voltmeter Model 543
8. Shure Controlled Magnetic Microphone Model 444 (Spec on Internet)
9. Sabatronics Model 2000 AC/DC/Ohm Digital Voltmeter
10. Sabatronics Model 8100 Digital Frequency Meter
11.Vingate Jason Kit Audio Genereator AG40 10Hz - 100Khz Sine/Square
12. Sony AM/FM/MW/SW Solid State battery Portable Radio Model 7F-74DC11

I have photographs of all the items but can only post 5 images on this forum

What a gesture, I would have snapped your hand off on account of the 'scope and multimeters alone, let alone adding a VTVM to my arsenal and the rest...

More's the pity I'm not able to get to Yorkshire. Best of luck finding an appreciative home for these instruments though, surely won't be long.

Thank you for offering them up, very generous of you.

A very generous offer indeed, thanks very much for thinking of the forum members!

I would like to express an interest in items 4, 6, 8 and 12 please.

I realise that you wish them to go altogether, I’d be happy to collect them all for distribution to other members once this lock down allows it. I’m near J33 M1 if that would help others, only about 1.5 hours from you. Obviously happy to stand aside if you receive a more convenient offer.

Thanks again,

Peter

I've placed a post on the FCS area regarding the 2 'scopes for sale as well as these, possibly have help collecting those when things get much more normal than they are now. More than happy for you to keep 4,6,8 & 12 if you're able to retain the others for either collection or FCS to Congleton in future?

(Still quite a journey for us to make otherwise I'd come up to you)

If Peter is willing to collect these, it may be feasible for FCS to facilitate onward dispatch in these uncertain times.

To strictly comply with the law, such a journey wouldn't yet be allowed, but from 15 May 2020, you can lawfully travel the length and breath of England to meet one person who is not a members of your household in an open space for exercise or an outdoor activity - golf for example, or to a fishing pond or river if an angler, or to go to a beach for a stroll or to sunbathe.

So strictly speaking, you could for example drive up to Richmond to meet forum member Willum08 to play golf or go for a walk in the park (2 Metres apart) but not to collect the items so generously offered. It's entirely a personal decision, but seeing the mayhem and chaos which has ensued in recent days on beaches, in national parks and beauty spots, it wouldn't trouble my conscience to make the return journey to Richmond.

By arrangement, the items could be placed outside the front door on your arrival.

I've just had a heavy item of woodworking equipment delivered by courier for which I'd normally have been asked to sign. He took the item off the van, place in on the drive outside my front door, knocked on the door and went back to his van 5 Metres from my front door. When I opened the door he took a photo of me with the parcel as proof that it had been delivered. As the parcel was heavy, he even asked if I'd like it placing in the garage or taking round the back on my home. (Ordered 8pm Monday night last week, delivered 11 working hours later 11am Weds).

I can only say what the so called 'lockdown' is like in Hull and East Yorkshire:

All council car parks are open and free of charge. Refuse sites are open, DIY stores and Wilko are open, (Poundland, The Range & B&M never closed), garden centres are open, in my village the chip shop, Indian and Chinese take-aways have never closed, golf clubs are open (not the Club-houses), the fishing pond is open, as is the café (and toilets) for take-way food and drinks. At Skidby Windmill, the café (and toilets) is open for takeaways, where there is a courtyard, garden and picnic meadow full of cowslips in which to relax. Lots of 'socially distanced' tables and chairs. Very uplifting and good for the soul to be among like-minded 'kindred spirits'.

So it's against that background that I say that it wouldn't trouble my conscience to make a 1.5Hr car journey to collect the equipment.

Which, is of course just my subjective opinion, which others may not share.

Here's a relevant snippet of what the letter of the law says on the Easing of Restrictions on Movement from 15th May 2020 within England:

You can travel to outdoor open space for my exercise or outdoor activity irrespective of distance. You shouldn’t travel with someone from outside your household unless you can practise social distancing - for example by cycling. Leaving your home - the place you live - to stay at another home is not allowed.

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020:

6.—(1) During the emergency period, no person may leave [F8 or be outside of] the place where they are living without reasonable excuse.
(2) For the purposes of paragraph (1), a reasonable excuse includes the need—
[F12(b)to take exercise—
(i)alone,
(ii)with one or more members of their household, or
(iii)with one member of another household;
F13(ba)to visit a public open space for the purposes of open-air recreation to promote their physical or mental health or emotional wellbeing—
(i)alone,
(ii)with one or more members of their household, or
(iii)with one member of another household;

F20(5) For the purposes of paragraph (2)(ba), “public open space” includes—
(a)land laid out as a public garden or used for the purpose of recreation by members of the public;
(b)land which is “open country” as defined in section 59(2) of the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949, as read with section 16 of the Countryside Act 1968;
(c)land which is “access land” for the purposes of Part 1 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (see section 1(1) of that Act).

There is page after page after page here for anyone who is at a loose end during lockdown who is minded to read through it:

Could I please go in the hat for items 5,6,7,8,10 and 11.
To be honest I could make use of all of these items so if no one else would like them I would happily take them all.
Not too far from me so I could collect.
Many thanks
Lynton

I would love that Shure444 too (item8), being a licensed radio amateur it would be ideal for my KW2000.

I would certainly make a donation to what ever chosen charity.

Thank you.

Default Re: Collection of mainly test gear FREE.

Thank you all for your interest - amazing response !

Having carefully considered all the replies, I think the best solution is that suggested by Peter.....(Reelman) Quote "I realise that you wish them to go altogether, I’d be happy to collect them all for distribution to other members once this lock down allows it."
That is a very kind offer Peter and much appreciated.

I need to dispose of the items ASAP since I will be moving home very soon and will not have room for them.

Peter, with regard to the posting by David G4EBT, I think this is a reasonable attitude to the current situation, and if you feel you could collect, the items could be placed in a large box on my driveway and we could easily maintain the 'Social Distancing' rule.
If you are willing to make the journey Peter, I'll send you my address details and contact number via PM.

I've attached photographs of 5 of the remaining items (just out of interest), to this post and you can see a photograph of the Sony MX12 Mixer here : https://www.worthpoint.com/worthoped...ding-131144051

Kind Regards to all.... and Stay Safe

Sorry Bill, you need to clear out some PMs to be able to receive anymore.

I’ve got your details so I’ll call you later.

Once I’ve spoken to Bill And made arrangements I’ll announce on the forum so we can arrange a distribution. I would prefer collection from me sooner rather than later but let’s see first who gets what.

Watch this space!

Hi everyone
I would be especially interested in buying the Vacuum tube voltmeter and maybe a frequency counter
i know its offered for free but i have been trying to buy one off of ebay but the prices are ridiculous so if no one is bothered by that i would happily pay some amount by it, the ideal situation would be that it could be shipped to me. Again i could pay something for the device plus shipping and handling, time wasted etc. i think it would still be cheaper for me than buying from ebay
i have a telequipment d67 scope here on the bench that was kindly offered from a member of this forum!i paid him the postage of course
Overhere its impossible to find this type of gear locally

if shipping overseas is an issue it could be shipped to Aylesbury to a relative of mine who could ship it back to me but that would bemore expensive for me

Default Re: Collection of mainly test gear FREE.

Right!
I am hoping to have collection and delivery of all the items to me on Tuesday. It has been agreed with Bill, the OP and he has further agreed that I can be the arbiter of who gets what. I will give preference to anyone who can collect from me (J33M1) in the near future or make practical arrangements. So, to be fair I am happy to receive requests for items from members until Saturday evening and then try and come up with a fair distribution using a hat if necessary. I suppose postage at cost for single items will be a last resort.

Presently these are the requests, perhaps Ekjdm14 will confirm what else he would like.....

1....Ekdm14, Wishiknewmore
2....Stacman, Wishiknewmore, Reelman
3.....
4....Reelman
5....LyntonP
6....LyntonP, Reelman
7....Deliverance, LyntonP
8....HamishBoxer, LyntonP
9.....
10...LyntonP, Wishiknewmore
11...Rogers-Lodger, LyntonP
12...Reelman

Any further requests or changes please PM me and I’ll put you on the list. Can all requesters (unless already PM’d) please confirm that they can collect or arrange transportation from me near J33M1.

I hope this all sounds ok....

Many thanks and good luck to all!

Peter
