Let's see your workshop.
After a 12 hour ordeal I got the workshop/office to the point where Janice will allow me to leave the door open!

The rack on the centre has some of the HP's I have but the very bottom row is still project shelf. Things get placed there for a rainy day. And it has been rainy, we have now broken a record set in 1956 for continuous rainfall in Vancouver.

Can you spot the TOS Star Trek stuff?

A TOS communicator can come in handy for your day job, in an emergency. I hope the tricorder is a real one and not one of those cheap alpha centauri knock offs. The dilithium cristals in those catch fire.

There's the communicator/TV remote. Looking for an E6B, does that count?

Dave,

Don,

the communicator is blue tooth and synched to my iPhone. You should see me in airport security when I get a phone call!!

The cheap Alpha Centuri ones were from "lost in space"' I don't think they had dilithium crystals in the series.
Then again I don't think they ever got there did they ?


Geoff
Are those transistor radios I spotted in the shelf near the "sillyscope" ?

RE: Let's see your workshop.
Yes, you found them, 50's and 60's reverse painted transistor radios all restored (new caps) some in original boxes:

Before and after:

The cabinet:

The big one:

And to the far right more HPs after all, need them for the book.

Good movie,

Don't understand the reference though :-)

Stand by for surprises.

***THE*** book?!? Gadzooks, Geoff, I can't afford to make it to Nashville this year. But if that may be where it appears - perhaps I can start walking now???

What, me interested?

RE: Let's see your workshop.
Ha, no pressure there.

If you look closely, just above the 9825a is a working copy of eth book. The last three chapters are a killer (writers block)and this damn forum keeps expanding the various chapters and the appendix!

Lol, just a joke about your long-awaited book on restoration. You must know by now how eager many of us are to purchase a copy when it appears.

Now that sounds interesting.

Cheers,

Brad,

I was being facetious!

Purposely missing the point :-)

It's being released on HP-65 mag cards. :-)

(Nice radio - I have to mark the CONELRAD frequencies on all those new-fangled ones with a Sharpie!)

Hello!

You saved my day! My wife's birthday is not far away and she is a trekkie (goes to conventions in costume and such things...). Didn't even know those bluetooth communicators existed - what a present.

As far as my "workshop" is concerned it is presently not presentable. No way I will show pictures on the internet. Two 3-D printers and two quadcopters awaiting completion next to all the calculators and stuff - what a mess. I really must buy my wife that communicator or she will change the locks of the house ;-)

Regards,
Max

The Bluetooth Communicator and Type II Phaser TV remote from the Wand Co. are both excellent in both accuracy and workmanship (can I use workMANship these days?)
Every Trekker and Trekkie (yes they ARE different!) should have at least one of each.

Yep, Gene, 59, 58 and the one you talked about last year!

Some navitronics and interesting others but 90% HP.

Of course, you'll have to add more items after my talk this fall!
