A very big thanks to G6ONE Dave for digging out his NEC A520E Amplifier service manual and scanning it for me. I couldn't find it anywhere online, it seems several others have been hunting for this manual for years.
So, thanks so much Dave for making this manual available!

(I have shared the manual on the 'Hi-fi Engine' website so others can benefit from it too.)

Thanks to Graham [Station X] for the RF meter which arrived very securely packed in a box offering the maximum protection on the "double wrap" principle.

. . .My grateful thanks to Matt for all his immense amount of hard work scanning the Philips PM5570 Video Test Generator and all his other PTV Manuals and ROM Images in his GitHub Repositories – this is valuable and irreplaceable information that would be impossible to find elsewhere!

You are a Star, Sir!

My thanks also to David G4EBT for his kind offer of the tagboards, had been looking for something like that for a while. I was luckily 5th out of the 5!

Great thanks to Jeremy MORVB,

For taking the time to catalogue, sort & pack all those CV valves & CRT's into box trays, a numatic task indeed, so hopefully all going to be used or as spares.

Thanks to Scott (ScottBouch) for the large diameter phono plugs that safely arrived this morning. They will come in handy to repair some heavy duty phono cables where the phono plugs are in poor condition.
