A colleague of mine is looking for an attractive' wireless set of 1930s or earlier vintage (i.e. something that would look good in-the living room) that needs a bit of DIY renovation (electrical or mechanical) to return it to working order. If anyone has one languishing in a corner and is unlikely ever to get round to fixing it up, he would be interested. No complete wrecks or impossible jobs, please, and nothing post war. He is prepared to pay a good price for the right unit. Please refer any offers to Philip Miller Tate, 21 Esher Avenue, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, telephone or fax 01932 253451, or E-mail: not

Also available: On the trading page in the last newsletter I mentioned Kenzen as a specialist supplier of valves and related components. This firm was founded by Ken Bailey, who was a member of the BAEC some time ago and has recently rejoined the club. He has written to me to say that his firm sells all kinds of electronic components, but their speciality is obsolete items. Most of his business is mail order, but he also attends many radio rallies and other specialist exhibitions throughout the UK. He will be pleased to help any member who experiences difficulty in sourcing components, as he says he has over three million items in his warehouse, and if he does not stock the item he will be able to suggest an alternative supplier. He does not issue a comprehensive catalogue, but issues lists of valves and component packs which he will gladly send to any member who sends a SAE. His firm's address is: Kenzen, Unit 9, 16-20 George Street, Balsall Heath, Birmingham, B12 9RG. Tel: 0121 4464346 Fax: 0121 4405323.
