Lot 714 is even more unusual could it be a home brew set?

Hi!

A "Viewmaster" perhaps?

The Decca was a 26" 30 series Bradford.
Sold for £40, we can only hope it didn't go to the cocktail bar/fish tank brigade, though I don't hold out much hope.

Hello All,
No, Its OK, I left a bid on it as I thought it was a nice looking thing but will definitely have a go at getting it working when I get a chance (will need some help with that Please!)

Only bid it got, looks as if it might have been looked after somewhat, the case is excellent.
Steve.

Appears that lot 714 didn't find a buyer, surprising and potentially sad if so: or perhaps, as with Millers of Newcastle who sold what I could bring myself to part with of my accumulation three years ago, unsold items will be offered again a few weeks later.

The Auction house does offer the unsold lots afterwards - 714 is on there now, hopefully will find a buyer.

A shame it is so far from me, it looks an interesting project, something that I'd take home if it were at my local auction. It may be a blessing in disguise, I do already have enough projects to get finished

I have purchased the little 9" TV. The Auction House is within walking distance of my home. I will of course let you know what it is with some pics. Picking up Friday.

Delighted the old Decca's found a good home. I'm sure we'll be able to help once you've got it on the bench. On second thoughts, the bench will probably collapse under the weight!

Great receivers the 30 series DECCA. The LOPT is the only weak area together with the usual shorted boost cap, lack of height due to the resistor feeding the height control going high and exploding mains filter caps. I'm not sure what you can do with the LOPT. It is encapsulated with resin/hardener and may be difficult to rewind but there is probably a few NOS ones floating about. Good luck with it, John.
