Many thanks to 'Nick The Dentist' for kindly sending me an instruction book and guarantee dated 1965, for a Dynatron Carnival GR8 record player, one of which I have, which I restored some time ago. A nice addition to go with it.

Many thanks to David (Terrybull) for sending me a very nice Sony DAB/FM portable radio. Now I can listen to Gold while getting on with fitting out my workshop

A nice example of Sony design, David and I really appreciate all the care you'd obviously taken in its packaging/marking up/consigning.

Best wishes
Guy

Grateful thanks to David (Hamishboxer) for the Pye Lynx camera I collected from him and his wife today. Good to meet you both.
Just now got to try and remember where I put my C mount lens and I can give it a go.

Thanks again, much appreciated.

Thanks to Nik and his mum for letting another nutter take over his dad's stuff...! - and to Steve for a nice pile of magazines and a natter. It's a while since I've seen as much brushed aluminium in one place! Good on yer...
