A big thank you to Anthony for one of the pair of HP 540B transfer oscillators that were offered & for print outs of the relevant manuals, they should be a great help for getting it going again.

Also thank you to Rileyman for a pair of E1T valves & sockets, probably the closest I'll get to owning an original counter that uses them.

I second DMcMahon - chriswood1900's objects arrived impeccably packaged and perfectly safely, despite the delivery man's grumbling about their weight. I know how long packaging like that takes, and am suitably grateful! I hope the MCR21 project continues apace in the new year.

I'll second that, mine arrived probably less than 24 hrs after posting and within 3 days of my original PM to David.

A big thank you to David (davidh1041) for the B7G valve holders.

A very generous offer.

I have some upcoming projects using B7G battery valves so absolutely ideal.

Cheers

My thanks to Ian, Northyorks1 who saw I’d missed out on an offered post recently and kindly sent me a Grundig with the best packing I’ve ever know. Extremely kind. Sincere thanks.

A real big thank you to Roy for supplying me PDF copy of the Truvox Series 90 tape recorder Servicing Instructions manual, the large bound hardcopy manual must have taken some series scanning to produce the good quality PDF, it is much appreciated.
