Default Attic clear out. Collection only.

I am needing to sort my attic for proper storage, as it is at present a jumble.
Homes are needed for the items below. Apologies, but access is awkward, and every time something is moved there is danger of scratches, etc, so have photo'd as best I can in situ. I will not post, and they need to be gone quickly so I can proceed with my reorganisation. Collection or FCS. All are untouched by recent repairer.
Television cabinet, mask damaged, wood is fair. Free.
Portable radio/TV 5.
Defiant something 50's set, magic eye. 10.
Ecko A52, lovely set. Ekco extension speaker to match. 10 both.
HMV set, dial glass missing. Free.
30's Murphy, cabinet ok, no back, rusty chassis, 5.
Ultra reel-to-reel 10

The Defiant is an attractive set. I may be going to Biggleswade if of any help.

The Ekco and it's speaker have gone to Wavy Dipole, many thanks for quick collection. Will hold the Defiant and hopefully FCS will connect for electronicskip, I have now sold the Ultra r2r, so ... this leaves
Murphy A24, sans back, tempted to keep this.
Radio/TV portable.
HMV without dial glass (which is FREE!)

That Murphy A24 set should clean up nicely and will look splendid with the birds eye maple veneer apron on the front once the speaker cloth has been replaced. I used to have 2 of them!! Chassis is easy to work on and should work well without too much difficulty. Your lucky as the knobs with their domed nuts can be lost rather easily.

Ok, Christopher, I am convinced. The Murphy goes to me, and the glassless HMV has now been gifted to a chap on Freecycle, who will restore it.
Thanks Mods, thread may be closed.
