This must be for the technically illiterate whom do not understand basics of engineering. They should read the ladybird book, "Magnets, bulbs and batteries" to get a good handle on it.

Sometimes I do publish videos which I worry are too simple. However, not everybody on this forum is an engineer and I believe that there is something in there for everyone. It would be easy to pack in but occasionally folk email to thank me for doing it.

Fair point. As an engineer I am often amazed by the technical ignorance of people - otherwise pretty bright. But thats life. So reducing stuff to the real basics is often essential

"Magnets, bulbs and batteries" - Brought back immediate memories of my childhood induction into the world electricity and electronics Cheesy Another book I was given by my junior school, was 'Fun with transistors'. A great A4 hardback signed by all the teachers, it showed how to build your own simple radio (regen) using the new OC44/45 and OC71 germanium transistors. Happy days!  extrahappy

Oddly patronising comment from Members Id thought better of, and more associated with the likes of Twitter where folk appear to queue to be offensive.
Keep posting Stann, there were things in that vid I had clearly explained for the first time.

C280s (tick)
AC176/153 pairs (tick)
Old blue electrolytics (tick)
Reels of tarnished 1N4001s (tick)
BC107/8/9s (tick)
GET 102s (tick)
100 6.5V MBC bulbs
The rest of it binned years ago.
The last of the OC75s went into a Vulcan auto-pilot test-set at work.
There is probably an old squirrel scouring ebay for this stuff, just got to find them and help them spend surplus cash.
