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..

Re: Part kits

And you said you didn't like soldering any more :D I don't :lol: Would rather someone else build it and try it :P I've gotta catch up on repairs, STE boosters, new PSU's yet :roll: When you put the list like that, it brings home how much work is involved in planning, let alone building the board. I...

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).

Re: competent repair people ?

It's more amazing people are actually bothered and there's that many actual users/machines left and people willing to spend on them, maybe the people spending on them are all the people who had these things as kids but now they have money and can go wild, nostalgia is a powerful thing :D Most if it...

Re: competent repair people ?

Congrats! No room for kids in my life, Our cat is enough for me, still half wanna kick it out of the door at times! :lol: Will probably just have to start saying "no" to more people, probably keep it to one repair every 6 months or something. Soldering is hard going for me these days (fingers again)...
