This article may be a bit off topic to radio but it is about power generating and your valve radio wont work without power!
I decided to write about this topic as this sort of information usually just dies and disappears as the industry and the people concerned die.
The subject is a fascinating little niche in the production of power generating sets that were part of our city and rural/farm living before the reticulation of state power.
I think this web site is as good as any to lodge this type of info as the magazines that covered engineering to do with electrical and electronics have disappeared as well!
With Brad's indulgence I present my article on Braybon Voltage regulators and the later solid state variations as designed by me.
I will forward a PDF for attachement.

Pretty sure Brad won't mind at all.

I, for one, find your articles very interesting and informative.

+1. I always learn something new from your project articles and they are interesting reading.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...
