Over the last 50 years I have accumulated a large number of
books, and a small number of collectable scientific
instruments. Having retired 6 years ago and recently moved
house, I need to dispose of some of these, in addition to some
furniture. The items described below are for sale/disposal
to a good home. If you are interested in acquiring any of
these, please email me and make me an offer - no reasonable offer
refused. Collection in person (HD9 area) preferred but I can
arrange carriage at cost.

A useful tallboy unit.
A display case with glass sliding doors, over
This is a bookcase I made myself, from sapele
veneered MDF. It separates into top and bottom units.
I also made this unit to fit in the space
I've had 23 years service from this piano which I bought
refurbished. Had to get a smaller new one when we moved.
Crookes type X-ray tube - appears to be in good condition, but I've
never used it.
Electrically Maintained Tuning Fork - two models available. I
have used these, and they did work - but modern electronic devices
are much more useful now!
Galvanometer - needs some renovation work
Wattmeter - made by Crompton Parkinson. I assume this still works,
but I've never used it.
