My very grateful thanks to Member WaveyDipole who very generously donated me three Tektronix 468 PCB assemblies to help me repair the '468 I imported from America that turned out to have a fatal self–test failure, caused by an internal short–circuit within the original TRW1007PC Video DAC dragging the +5 V to about 4.1 V, resulting in failure!

I have fitted the replacement Graphics panel and the supply line is now OK – there are still other analogue faults to look at, but I've got a carcass with a spare A15 Interface Board for these!

You are a Star, Sir!

Thanks to Rob "whiskas" for a very well-protected package of useful vintage parts- there are some commercial operators who could take worthwhile lessons from him on how to package and protect posted items properly!

Just a belated thanks to Cifer1887 for supplying me with the Fakerscope 3000 user guide.

Brilliant!

A big thank you to Member Jac from the Netherlands who scanned me the Philips PM3055 Oscilloscope PCB layout drawings with the pink and grey tracking tints – none of the available online or paper ones I can find show these and the scans were absolutely pristine and pin–sharp!

Many thanks to Nickthedentist for the lovely Monacor grilles and electronic “transformers”. The grilles will make a big improvement to my inside wall loudspeakers. Great packaging as well. Thank-you Nick!

Thank you Craig Sawyers for offering and carefully packing an aluminium side panel for my ‘Startronic’ DC Power Supply.

I acquired this useful PSU many years ago, minus said panel. Now, finally it’s complete.

I would like to thank Aaron (Aaron_555) very much indeed for his kind gift of a Philips CD104. I will coax it back to life - it's going to be fantastic to have a 104 to play CD's on again after all these years. We will treasure it.

Best wishes,

Steve.
