Practical Electronics was a UK published magazine, founded in 1964, as a constructors' magazine for the electronics enthusiast. It was originally spun off from a sister title, Practical Wireless, to contain all non-radio articles. However, there was a further division in 1971, when a novice-level title, Everyday Electronics, was begun by the same publisher. Until 1977, both titles had the same production and editorial team.
By the early 1990s, the title experienced a marked decline in market share and, in 1992, it was purchased by Wimborne Publishing Ltd. which was, at that time, the publisher of the rival, novice-level Everyday Electronics. The two magazines were merged to form Everyday with Practical Electronics (EPE) - the "with" in the title being dropped from the November 1995 issue. In February 1999, the publisher acquired the former rival, Electronics Today International, and merged it into EPE.
