Default cheap williamson amp kit

For time travellers
From the winter 1949 Premier radio catalogue
If 10.10s seems cheap, I estimate it would be 1050 now

I still don't see how you people kept all that pound/shilling/pence stuff straight. The parts/price list looks like long division using Roman numerals.

About 25 dollars. Which might just about buy you one of the valves these days.

wait, are those 1949 dollars? assuming a steady rate of 5% inflation, that's around 423 2007 dollars... which is still quite nice.
