OLD TECHNOLOGY QUERYWhy not. It certainly beats those horrible cube slates. ----- Original Message ----- From: Ray's Home To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, June 29, 2005 8:35 AM Subject: [access-uk] Re: OLD TECHNOLOGY QUERY Afraid I can only Suggest Ian that you, or your friend, put a wanted advert on recycle it, or similar VI list. This thread is certainly turning up a few walks down memory lane. I prsume your friend would be glad of the frame, whether its the old metal frame, or the new fangled plastic version that appeared in the 60s! Considering that led is poisonous I'll bet those type were replaced by plastic eventually. Then, again, young kids might have swollowed them! Yes, the Taylor frame wouldn't have stood a chance were someone trying to launch it again today.

Did you know they also made algebra type? At one time I had both. ----- Original Message ----- From: Ian Macrae To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, June 29, 2005 6:54 AM Subject: [access-uk] OLD TECHNOLOGY QUERY Hi all, Does anyone have, or know where I could look to borrow a Taylor frame such as we used to use for arithmetic when I were a lad? Won't explain more cos you'll either know what one is or won't. I'd also need the type to go with it. Private suggestions or advice greatly appreciated and gratefully received. Cheers now.
