    I would use finishing plaster or a decent filler like Toupret tx110 on the ceiling. Seal it with PVA or something similar first. On the wallpaper seams I use a decorators syringe and a wooden seam roller. Load the syringe with border paste or some similar wallpaper paste. Make sure you clean the paste of the surface of the paper or you'll have a nightmare covering it with paint.

    Johnstones is a decent paint, you shouldn't need to mess with it too much. If you are trying to fill the gaps between wallpaper, good luck.

    Maybe a photo of the ceiling would help. It's likely that you need a patch of plasterboard with a bit of bonding over it and some filler to finish it off but without seeing what you are dealing with it's hard to say.

    I've never mixed filler with paint to increase it's opacity but I guess it would work. You normally water the first coat down a bit but lining paper takes paint pretty well anyway. A lot depends on the paint you are using.

    Similar problem here. Not a terrible problem to have though.

    Those figures suggest you could make closer to £1260. It takes time to sell them though and likely no one will offer £960 for the combined lot.

    It's a nice collection, why not get it in good shape and play them?

    As long as you survive long enough to get a van it's all gravy.

    No, that's just for waving about when you can't be arsed to get a proper one out of the van.

    It's not the neon bulb screwdriver type either.

    Something like the one linked below. You're supposed to have a method of proving that is working too. They make voltage tester proving boxes.

    That's the spirit.

    Conductors that are installed in close proximity to one another, and are capacitively coupled to each other, can cause this a.c. voltage reading. Such a reading could be 2 or 3 volts, or it may be as high as the voltage on the adjacent conductors. This is what is referred to as a “phantom” voltage.

    Not my description. If you are checking that the circuit is safe to work on using a multimeter this is a problem you can run into. You are supposed to use a dedicated voltage tester.

    I need to check but I'm pretty sure official support for 5.1 will end with Mojave, Catalina starts at 6.1.

    I've had the 6 core 5.1 since 2010, they are great machines.

    Very sensible approach. A lot of dealers aren't interested once they know you've catalogued them as they'll assume you've cherry picked them. I had this happen with Vinyl Pimp when I was trying to sell 2500 12" dance records.
