Grateful thanks to Clive a.k.a. MurphyNut for sending, entirely free of charge, a small Murphy knob for the Black Country Living Museum’s Murphy A28 console radio. Very generous of you Clive, and it will enable the final touch to be given to a lengthy restoration project.

A big thank you to WME_Bill for taking the time to pack & send the HP 180 series extender unit, should be very useful once I've ironed out the PSU faults with my 180A scope and for the 183B scope too.

Thanks to DonaldStott for the laptop RAM. He didn't want the postage refunded, so the National Media Museum got a donation on his behalf.

Many thanks to motorbike les who in addition to a bit of silver solder also found several other almost impossible to find small parts, and all for just the postage.
Greg.

Heartfelt thanks to G60NEDave for digging out the manual for the exact Philips TV I am trying to fix, and then providing me with high quality scans of it.

Many thanks to Phil, goathanger, for sending the cassette deck.

Here, works, listening to cassettes.

It is amazing just how good a cassette sounds, no Dolby, 8 bit audio, a tape recorded in 1983 with Jennifer Rush, good stuff.

Another big thank you to Phil, goathanger. The Phillips CD player is working beautifully in my workshop system and sounding very good indeed.

Thank you very much, Phil.

Thanks to Rob (whiskas) for the Dell 1525 I bought from him back in February. It’s been a lovely project since then doing little improvements like doubling the memory, replacing the hard drive with an SSD, treating it to a new battery and installing Windows 10. Runs beautifully and looks like new - and it looked pretty good to begin with!

Hi!

My grateful thanks to "High Vacuum House" Chris Capaner for offering the 106 and 191 Tek and picking me out as winner of these, for the purpose of repairing my 545A and 465B oscilloscopes, and the tray of oddments, there's some qood–quality sharp 4mm test–prods that'll come in handy for testing PCBs at work!

I haven't tested the generators yet but they're in lovely condition!
