I only had a quick look but it seems OK at a glance. Finally got round to getting my 17th Edition a couple of months ago, but have been working with Industrial Control systems ever since getting my BEng over 20 years ago, so it won't phase me (excuse the pun).

Looks a great find, Phil. Human possessions expand to fill the space available, mind :)

That's the downside :lol: but by the time I've repatriated projects and parts from various locations there might be space for maybe one more...
