Thanks to Paul for the Valve + Transistor Data CD - I was just ordering it online this morning when the postman popped it through the letterbox

And a big thankyou to @Bobsterkent for offering the TV12 and Aurora as it serves to officially launch the MEET TV receiver collection. I have just watched 'Television Comes to London' on it.

Thanks to Diabolical Artificer for the Art Of Electronics. I should have bought a copy years ago although this one will probably go to my son who is keen on all things technical.

Many thanks to red16v for the Akai metal Spool that arrived today, Sunday.

Not a very common item in the heyday of R2Rs but probably one of the most desirable accessories today.

Much appreciated!

Thanks Ben for the VCR, it's very low mileage indeed and has passed the Blackadder Goes Forth test, 3 episodes. (BBC VHS tapes were never great quality!)

Many thanks again to Lloyd (Lloyd 1985) for the slide projector he delivered to my stall last Sunday along with a matching microphone for an item he remembered he gave me ages ago. Good to meet face to face!

Unfortunately I forgot to mention I am also very familiar with the Dun Cow, Saturday night live bands and Sunday drinks in the 70s.

Thanks again and I hope your parents had a good day!

Many thanks to Stockden (Hugh) for the FOC Tektronix scope trolley - and his patience when I arrived to collect it from a pub car park over half an hour late!

A huge thank you to Joe (joebog1) for the three 6GW8 valves that safely arrived today after their long journey from Australia.

They were totally FOC so extremely generous of Joe, it is much appreciated.

One of these is to relace a broken ECL 86 but it will be some time before I get around to it.
