|I've been looking at getting my Old Analog Controller 'lash up' fixed properly for a while now !
In nosing through some old materials...
...I came across a very nice piece of timber, I cut ages ago, for something completely different !!
It fitted the parts perfectly, and looks really cool with my 'dusted-off' Old Analog Controller mounted on it.
From left to right ... 1950s, 1970s, 1960s, I think.
Hornby Dublo A.C. transformer, RELCO high-frequency unit, Tri-ang Railways P-42 circuit-controller.
The history of mooodern plastics ...
... From left to right ... Bakelite, A.B.S, Phenolic-resin, I think.
Chunky stud-mount Schottky-rectifiers, courtesy of my Bulgarian contact in the Russian space-program !
3300uF 63 Volt smoothing capacitor.
Some adapting of the Tri-ang P-42 to come, leads need modding, for 'walk-around' styleee.
More soon . . .
