Default Lots of TV droppers

Good grief. I've just found a box of droppers. All NOS, mainly RS.
Here we are then:
Thorn 3000/3500 x 5
Bush A823 (I think) 56 + 68R x 5
Flat ones 3R5+15+39R X 2 Look familiar but can't remember what they're for
250+14, 156R x 2
56+27 x 6
18, 380+70, 39R x 2 Long legs - Thorn?
27+56+3 x 2
RS R17 2k2+560+500+2k60450 (little one for a KB Rhapsody)
RS R22 14+26+97+173 flattie
RS R23 2k85+125+30 x 2
RS R29 188+63+70+19+15+10
56+1k0+47+12
32+17+6666+33+77

All FOC except postage. If you want several I'd be pleased!

I do wish I was psychic and could predict which droppers I will need in the next 10-20 years! But I'm not, so will have to pass, unless these get to the "will be binned" stage, at which point I'll act as a repository for a bit, for other UKVRR members' needs.

My bin is locked shut!
I'd really like to find a taker for the TVs though.

Hi Glyn.

Could I take a 3500 and an A823 dropper please? If there are surplus ones to re home, then I would be happy to take these as well.

Thanks.

SimonT.

Good afternoon,
Could I be put in the hat for the 18, 380+70, 39R x 2 Long legs - Thorn? droppers please. Are these the two on the right hand side Centre? If so they look like Thorn 1400 droppers. I have one with several polo mints dangling off it and could do with replacing it.
Many thanks,
Christopher Capener

You've been busy!
The curious 6666 is, of course, 66+66.
Thanks for reminding me about the flat ones - I knew they were familiar, but I'd managed to remove unhappy memories of the CT200/570 from my memory.
I've sent PMs to those interested - any more takers?
