Almost all the photo's
posted in threads at Golborne since inception require you to be a member to view, all you can mostly view are the thumbnails as a guest. I say mostly as there have been a few exceptions, perhaps its an option at post time that a member can make. All our photos and UKVRR's, are fully viewable by the general public, thus not forcing membership to view them.
This thread demonstrates and serves as an example http://golbornevintageradio.co.uk/forum ... p?tid=3896
try clicking on the thumbnail images.
Anyway lets get this thread back to what it was really about, the tool rather than discussing other forums functionality! Without seeing the thread I can with reasonable confidence, assume the tool Alistair refers too in post #1 is the following :-
I have the tool in question (see below) and is used on virtually every restore I do. The device was built by Col ( Retired ) of UKVRRR who is also a Golborne member and was kindly gifted to me almost three years ago now.
The tool is not only good for extending short leads but when snipping out components from circuit. If you leave a small stub when snipping out a duff component you can form a coil on the new replacement to slip over the stub, thus forming a very good mechanical joint (see below).
Some manufacturers even did this type of connection and it is also recommended in Radio & Television Servicing volumes.
