    I have the 740 Eddystone from which I detached the front end some years ago so that I could fit a replacement dial and finger plate. I have all the bits and pieces from when the dismantling took place but I cannot remember which bit goes where ! Could someone please help me overcome this problem ? Thank you. Bryan. M3HZV

    • Bryan, there are some good articles in the Restoration Section of the website. One on Eddystone dials and drives plus an article on restoring a 740. You might find what you are looking for there.

    I have held on to an Eddystone 840A since 1955 when at sea.
    There is an identical model on EBay for £20. I would be pleased to sell, at same price, to any buyer who can arrange collection at Moffat, Scotland, within say the next 6 months. (Location 1 mile from junction 15 M74)
    The power cord is adrift but it was working fine when last used some years ago.
    The black case is a little worn but in acceptable condition.

    Hey guys. I’m in the US and I’m looking for an 820 FM tuner. Even an S 930/2 would be nice, but I understand those are very rare.

    Cheers,

    Don Forbes

    Hello , I am about to start to build an Eddystone AW-2 regen receiver , I see it uses a 1uf+1uf capacitor ( 2 capacitors in one case ) , as this type is very difficult to get hold of, could I just use 2 x 1uf caps with both negative leads to earth ? or any other suggestions ?
    Many thanks
    Chris G4UDG.

    • You will occasionally see them for sale on E bay if you want authentic old style caps. No reason why you cant use two 1uF caps instead if authenticity is not the aim. Regards.Chris G0EYO
