Hi!

My thanks to Member Pinörkel (Denis) for all his hard work on the TQ D755 manual and all his tips and tutorials, in particular how to make high quality PCB layout diagrams like you get in original service manuals – this was something I have tried like the Vintage British Drawing Lettering project, but couldn't get a good enough result with my own skills on their own!

I'm sure I will echo the views of all giving a big thankyou to Paul Stenning for setting up, and the moderators for sustaining, this Forum. It is one of the key activities that is keeping me from going stir crazy during the lockdown..... Jerry

Absolutely!

I predict a baby boom and restoration boom, a whole new generation of vintage equipment users.

I'll second the above - the ferrites and microswitches he sent (beautifully wrapped) were a very beneficent bestowal.

I'd like to say a big thank you to jimbilton for his kind gift the 'Everay' violet ray therapy device. It's a super little curiosity and a great addition to my small collection of interesting stuff.

Steve.

A big thank you to Mick, Vinrads for his generous gift of two knobs sent completely free of any cost to me. You are a gentleman sir and I’m very grateful thank you.

And thanks to Vinrads (Mick) who found me the pot I needed for my Bush VHF61 restoration, and sent with it some very useful spare knobs for that set. He refused to accept payment, even for postage. Now that’s very much in the finest traditions of this forum.
Thanks Mick!
