We in this hobby deal with a lot of model designations that include letters and numbers. But when using the search function built into the forum, those non-word terms are ignored. So if you want to find prior postings with Victor III or Edison C-19, you are just plain SOL.

But there is an alternative, which is to use google, externally. The bots are scraping this thing all day everyday, so why not put that to work?

Here's how. Just open a new browser tab and go to google. Enter the following:

[search term(s)] site:forum.talkingmachine.info

So for the two examples above, enter:

Victor III site:forum.talkingmachine.info

Edison C-19 site:forum.talkingmachine.info

Easy peasy.

Forgive me if this is obvious or has already been posted here.
