Sadly I don't, but I just wanted to say thanks for the memory!

I had one of those which held up my beeb and commodore 64 for a number of years. That was a blast from the past.

You could show the pic to a local joiner,and I am sure they could make one.

We had one for 30 years but it went to the tip last year in a house clearance. Sorry.

Oh dear.

Reminds me, what is the importance of that particular desk? As I said had one some time ago as well but no more, and while it was okay, there are better desks about. So what it the nostalgia value? i.e. the looks, or do you particularly like those sorts of desks.

Would making one be an option? More effort than buying one, but might be a more feasible way to get something like it.

Hiya.

Aw... that's a shame.

I never got a message from you, though.?

Pure nostalgia. My brother had one. We are trying to get his full setup.

I think the hardest bit would be the front edge of the desk and actually getting the original dimensions. Although I had one, not sure I could guess the dimensions from memory. Maybe the original manual is online somewhere.
