Computers and Calculators.

When not attempting in futility to catalogue all the lighting kit I have, or crawling around under my cars, I like collecting and restoring old electronic kit.  This started out with a late 1960s television, but has since spread to radios.  Some of the vintage computers and calculators I own are shown here as well, because they fit into the subject pretty well too.

You'll have to forgive the photography in the case of these pages being a little less professional than elsewhere on the site - things here are a bit bigger, hence don't fit nicely in my little photographic area I use for the lighting kit!

On the topic of old computers, having recently discovered how nice they are to type on, I am now looking for a Northgate Omnikey Ultra keyboard.  If you've got one of these locked away in your attic or something and would like a good home for it, please feel free to drop me a line!
