|The last six adverts for Electronic Precision Equipment Ltd were prompted by an email from Peter King who had purchased kits from the company at their Ruislip (London) shop.
I grew up in Ruislip, and Electronic Precision Equipment (Ruislip Branch) was the 'temple' at which I found out the hidden mysteries of nature, science and negative feedback.
I wonder if anyone remembers building the 'Occasional '56', a 4 valve TRF using the Octal US 7xx series of bottles?
There was a later model using 7pin valves, with the dreaded Line Cord for the heaters. Also a skeleton set made on SRBP cards (ex Mullard Valve Tester), and using 2 lovely little 954 acorns.
I made several of these, and would love to stroll down memory lane with anyone who remembers or built them.
If anyone has data on the sets mentioned or wants to contact Peter please email me.
