Bardwell's is still there, only 300ft from the old premises but now on the main Abbeydale Road. Alas, the junk's a bit more modern and trashy, but I'm sure the old guy in there's the same young guy I knew in the '60s! SJB, Sheffield

Max, what took you so long to find that place? You are trying to think of either Webb or W&W Electronics on Clinton Street. It's too late to buy the 1920s radio on display but you can still look at it.

Nope -- I'm sure you are right -- I'm still reeling from the shock (I would have sworn it was PW not PW)

@radionut - I think the reply only workd for a few levels else the columns get very thin (this used to happen...!) I also learned a lot from the "In your workshop" columns, they were very instructive. I had quite a few copies of the Radio Constructor - it was another good mag from the old days....

Hi David, I can't see a "Reply" tab on your recent posting but you're spot on with Dick and Smithy being in the Radio Constructor: their exploits were related in the "In Your Workshop" column and I learned a lot from them.

Wasn't the Radio Constructor the one that used to have the Dick and Smithy stories about the apprentice Radio/TV tech (Dick) being taught by his boss (Smithy)? Used to enjoy those.

Ax-man surplus (http://ax-man.com/) in the Twin Cities is always a lot of fun. I put together a TV remote control (read: wired solenoid-based channel button pusher) for my dad from Ax-man parts back in high school. It even sort of worked.... ;) They have scads of stuff, not just electronics. I just about bought a pair of airline seats as college dorm furniture, but unfortunately didn't have any friends with a pickup truck to haul them to Chicago. Ah well.

No, poor memory. 304TL filament is 125W. I was thinking of something else (35T, maybe?). http://www.alumrocktech.com/304tl.shtml
