Thanks to RogDW48 for the incredibly kind gift of an utterly amazing cassette deck, and for packing it so well and posting it so quickly.

My thanks to Valvepower (Terry) for his great kindness in giving me a set of Trio transformers, as well as for sharing many helpful scans of valve amplifier circuits and constructional booklets on this forum.

Many thanks to Electronpusher0 for sending the Ever Ready 5216, it arrived safely and has provided the information required to finish another restoration, and is now being restored itself.

Thank you to Horris (Dave) for the HP 3400A voltmeter that arrived safely on Saturday.

On its rear panel its Hewlett Packard ident plate says B÷blingen, Federal Republic of Germany. This brings back good memories of when I used to do site visits to the Siemens Semiconductor Plant at B÷blingen.

David

Update - To be more accurate , B÷blingen is the district, Siemens (also linked with IBM at the time) was on the edge of Sindelfingen (commonly called Sifi).

Thanks for the Taylor Windsor 45B Instruction Manual, it is very much appreciated, I hope to pick it up later today- so hopefully it will be restored to a nice working condition.

A big thank you to Malcolm G6ANZ for the various capacitors that arrived safely on Wednesday, this was a very generous FOC replacement for the original shipment that appears to have got mislaid in the Royal Mail ether.

Thanks to David, 'Backtoreailty' for kindly donating, and going to the trouble to pack and post the Radiophiles to me, which I'm enjoying reading.
