.. is the number of Adverts (images) now in the database and available online. This figure also represents the completion of the processing of the last remaining  items on my computers. (some of which were originally scanned by me over 5 years ago!)

There is more original material waiting to be assessed, and no doubt new material will keep arriving, but I think there’s now a sufficient coverage to take a rest from the processing and get to grips with updating the website search functions and classified listings – and of course the catalogues.

Thanks again to all of you that have made donations, much appreciated and all ploughed back into the project. (like the recent acquisition of a good number of these titles from the 1940’s and 1950’s from which I’m hoping to find some great additions to the machine tools ads in the collection)


In the last post I mentioned the Mechanism ‘Power Loss Indicator’ – an instrument I’ve never come across before, but a reader kindly told me that there were four of these on the Comet (Pilots’ Centre Panel) and (very briefly) they should ideally all read around the 12 o’clock position during the take off roll.

That’s it for now…
