Thanks to Uncle Bulgaria: Joshua, for the two plugs. The ex-gov one was used on a number of WW2 sets to provide 12v so will prove to be very useful.

Thanks again,

Peter

A big thank you to Jim (G4XWDJim) for the Gould OS 255 Oscilloscope and RS X1 -X10 scope lead that I collected this morning.

It was good to meet Jim, once again thank you for this very generous F.O.C. item.

From a quick test, all is working well.

Before I use it in earnest, I will check out the 950 volt output winding of the mains transformer as read in older Threads that it can suffer with shorted turns.

David

Thanks to Greg and Mike for ferrying my box of hardware from Valvepower to Golbourne, and then Thanks to Dave Moll for stepping into the breach when My car broke down on the M6 at Killington lake services. Picked up the gear from Dave all safe and sound.
Many thanks to all for your kindness.
