Thanks very much to David (Daveobuchanan) for the Sobell S337 which arrived this afternoon packed very nicely & in better shape than I'd dared hope.

And as Peter mentions above, I owe another David (captainpugwash) a further big thank you for the UL41 valve which arrived today in similarly free fashion and super fast too! This has to be one of the most Gentlemanly and pleasant forums there is going, whether in/outside the vintage electronics community.

Thanks to greg_simons for the R53 thermistors. The packing was excellent and they are now on their way to those requesting one. The original box with 19/- on it was interesting too !

A big thank-you to all the people who made today's sale at the BVWTM very enjoyable. The organisers did a great job as ever, and I also had some interesting chats with other people who came along.

I really enjoyed it!

A very special thanks to kkyaho (Kevin) who spotted that I asked for some information 9 years ago. He took the trouble to ask if it was still required and then kindly sent me the manual and calibration tone for the Topward Wow/flutter meter. I now have a really useful piece of kit.
Thanks very much Kevin!

A big thanks to Lloyd 1985 for bringing me some SCSI drives and the Mike Receiver yesterday at the NVCF. Now I’ll just have to dig out the appropriate SCSI connector - why were there so many variants?
Nice to meet you and the other identifiable members yesterday.

A thank you to See-Mos for the knobs for the Pye 19A project, exactly what I needed, and for the 8BA nuts and trimming tool he made.

A massive thanks to Glyn aka Welsh Anorak
for the Fergy/Thomson and Tatung service manuals he sent F.O.C cost of postage only.
Thank you Glyn, although I have only a fraction of the manuals I once had
these have filled a few gaps in the relatively few I do have.
Thank you very much once again

Much grateful for Kalee20's generous gift of the high quality litz wire that arrived today. It should keep me busy for many years to come.

Another big 'Thank You' to add to the list (Litz!) of those who benefited from the generosity of Peter, 'Kalee20' in packing and posting reels of Litz wire to fourteen forum members, (if I've counted correctly), myself included. Ordinarily Litz wire is quite out of reach for hobbyists such as ourselves, so it's a real 'windfall'!
