GPO Trimphone dial, radiation suits at the ready!!!
« on: February 18, 2013, 12:39:41 PM »
Okay, it's not one of the tritium tubed ones (asked the seller to check to make sure!!), so no risk of radiation, even if they weren't any more radioactive than a wristwatch... :D

I thought I'd buy it to see if I could rig up something inside it to make it glow without any radioactive materials, aswell as see if it'd fit a 746, cos I've been wondering about that for a couple of years but never got a dial to try... :D

Bought that alongside that 2nd 95A socket, so, both from the same seller, I just forgot to mention this one... :D

I was hoping to get one of these, and the radiation suit too... :D

Got it, and, er, it IS a Tritium-tube equipped version, only the glow is so minimal I can't get a picture of it... :D

Well, scrap that last comment about not being able to get a picture, with my old camera on nightshot, and some post processing pushing the brightness & contrast right up to the limits, I got this picture, it's nowhere near as bright as that in real life, but you can see it's still got life in it, although, there is a crack in the tube near the bottom end, which is probably why it's brighter at the top than the bottom... :D

I'm not worried though, a lump of granite is more radioative than this thing... :D
