...but if you find one, let me know, or failing that lets stick some material on the Wiki !!

My dad started me off at 6 with my first "electric set", made up of motors, switches, diodes, relays and bulbs, which taught me the first stages. The motor also fitted my meccanno models. My speciality was always burglar alarms.

What sort of things are you looking for ?

I have a lovely little book on building crystal sets, not from components, but by rolling your own coil, variable capacitor, detector diode and head phones. I'll try and remember the title.

My 7 year old has already "done" circuits - they made a lamp light in their science class last year, now I can't tell him anything.
