Re: competent repair people ?

Just wondering what the voltage rating is for things like capacitors on the new board? 25v?
Think there is only 3 caps which are electrolytic and 16v... Most caps are all ceramic now and normally 50+ volts. I've not looked into it.. No need.

So as you don’t like soldering, will you be selling the new “red” psu in a kit form?

Just being hopeful....
I'm farming off soldering work to a UK company now.. Increases costs but I don't have time to keep building things up anyway. I wrote a lot about that elsewhere..

I...

Re: Part kits

Parts below will be in the kit.. The CPU & ROM are £10 each in my store, but will do at half price in this kits.. then helps offset the "double postage cost" for you guys..

Re: ALPHA PARTS LIST

Small change, the 2.2K resistors packs will be 4.7K.

There is a 20uF cap in the reset circuit, but will supply a 10uF one (makes no odds to anything).
