My Re-furb collection so far..

Post by ViperSan » Sun Sep 24, 2017 3:58 pm

Been at this a couple of months now ..and still have a few to complete ..including another VIC20 ..and a C64 ..
..also an AppleII Europlus.
Pictured are the completed items ..
..and with the exception of a couple of VICs ..and the C16 ..they dont have power supplies ..
I use this one ...
https://en.retrogamesupply.com/products ... mmodore-64
..but made my own leads to replace the short one for C64 only supplied as standard..
I have made a 1 mtr replacement which fits both VIC and C64 ..
and a 1 mtr lead with the odd square DIN as used by the Plus4.
I like this psu ..as it has overload protection ..so ..very useful when fixing breadbins etc..

The PET was a huge challenge ...as is the Apple as I know nothing about Apple..

I am genuinely jealous of the PET and it's double disk drive.

Nice machine!

Glad you like the PET ...as do I..
..and to think ..I almost gave up on it when I first powered it up after 25 years..and it almost caught fire..
Quite frightening ..exploding filter caps on the mains input..
lol

Oh ..forgot to mention ..
Dave at Tynemouth software has found me a used RF modulator for the C16 ..so I will hopefully 'fully' restore it soon..

So ..I managed to get one more C64 pcb repaired ..but..
after checking I had all the parts I needed but 1 for a rebuild.
The power plug escutcheon ..
what to do ?
Well ..I thought..I wonder if I could make one ..
After some rummaging in my scrap metal box ..I found some used right angled aluminium stair riser edging.
Not exact dimensions ..but close enough.
So ..set about with a hacksaw ..some files and the press drill..
4 hours later..
The result is in the photo ..
Not perfect but close enough I think.
I could spray it black ..but I actually quite like it silver.
what do you guys think ..madness or obsession..lol
