Spend only 4 hours and end up on the east side of Toronto ... sayal[dot]com is one of the few remaining stores with electronic components in the region that supports the hobbyist and professional.

Really? Did they not have this in Practical Electronics also? I'm "gob-smacked" as they say. In fact, I'm just about to send an email to the original publisher of Practical Electronics asking him about this. I'm not saying you aren't right, you understand -- and I did read Practical Wireless also .. .but I would have sworn this was in Practical Electronics -- watch this space...

So long as there's a "and quaff a few beers" component you can count me in! :-)

At one stage there was another magazine called Everyday Electronics - mostly beginners type projects. I think "Take 20" was in there (but could be wrong). EE eventually merged with PE to a new mag called Everyday Practical Electronics (mouthful!) which I think carried over the Take 20 column. Anyway, Max, your contacts there will give us the real story I am sure.

If we can organise for Meet Max, buy parts, beers and Mock Electronics all together I might make it over there :-)

I really regret the disappearance of these shops. Re the long link -- in the future you should go to https://bitly.com/ and use them to shrink the large URL to a smaller, more manageable version -- for example, I just used it to shrink your monster URL to the following http://bit.ly/138rhDo

Well, I am mortified -- I just got an email back from the publisher of Practical Electronics -- he confirms that there was no "Take 20" series there, so you are correct -- I must have been reading it in Practical Wireless (take me outside and spank me now! :-)

Well my money is on the first "Take 20" column appearing in the May 1969 edition of Practical Wireless, the series remaining with this publication. The beer's on me if I'm wrong...
