My thanks to Pamphonica (Jeremy) for the Hatfield 6-decade resistance box. As Jeremy mentioned, all the switches were indeed very stiff to rotate: all of those have been replaced. All the Rs. are 'on-spec.' as far as I can measure; every R is stated as 0.1% tolerance.
Overall, a very useful piece of kit for use as a calibration standard.

Al. / Nov. 20th.

Many thanks to Regentone001 for the two tape recorders. One has already provided the head cover to replace the damaged one I bought at Golborne.
Also was great to see the Avengers on 405 lines again, must be nearly 50 years ago since the last time! Good to hear the Regentone ‘gram as well.
cheers,
Peter

Thankyou to Chris (Herald1360) for the 10S/10614 leather meter case, which is in impressive condition, and now teamed up with my rebuilt 10S^46 avominor.

The nomenclature for military avo specs. at this time was quite varied, and either a Type H or a 10S^46 is a legitimate occupier of the case! (They are the same meter anyway..)

Pictured is the correct mode of insertion- it has been known for them to be shoved in 90 degrees out of synch., which makes them jam into the case. The correct method allows the leads to be rolled up and placed alongside.

Ta Chris!

Thanks to Mike (Cobaltblue) for passing on some rather nice old meters to me, including what appears to be a genuine aftermarket AR88 signal meter ("genuine aftermarket" does seem like an oxymoron, though).

Also thanks to Phil G4SPZ and another Mike (Gridiron) for effecting the transfer to RWB of a BC348 chassis for me (an item that would surely have 99% of the general public muttering, "Get rid of that grubby old junk- fast!"- but is actually a very useful source of some very specific spares including output transformer/filter choke module, power/mode wafer switch and 350k/20k ganged gain pot for the cosmetically good but incomplete set here). The meters and chassis gained the British Heart Foundation a donation.

With Mike Barker's entertaining-as-always piloting of the auction, Mike Lewis's usual eclectic and useful stall and a chin-wag with Mike Izycky, a day positively flooded with Mikes!

Colin
