Re: Reckon these iron tips will be any good?

Thanks... I'm not. its just a hobby. Next to get a flight instructor rating that i'll never use. That's a mad arse hobby! I grew up with the 150G and 172M. Dad was a dick. He would always cross his arms and say "I'm dead, you land" (he was very paranoid about that situation eventuating) and so I di...

Reckon these iron tips will be any good?

I bought these off eBay ages ago and they took so long to get here I'd forgotten I bought them. tips.jpg I haven't seen powder coated tips before, but it seems like a good idea... Keep the thermal energy where it's needed and avoid wetting areas where it's not needed/inconvenient to be wetted. I'll ...

Re: MC68(xx)030RP(xxx) variants? What to get, and what to avoid?

Is regards to fake chips, does anyone know if isopropyl alcohol removes the white print on genuine 68030RP33Bs? Other chips like ceramic 060s where most text is etched, the white print in top right corner seems resilient from what I've seen. Or perhaps the counterfeiters have started using alcohol ...

Re: dry solder joint repair question

but the oxidation of the leads coupled with the dried solder is quite a different kettle of fish! When I get a part/pad that is too oxidised to take solder I usually try with that Baker's Soldering fluid. It's a Zinc Chloride solution typically used for soldering car radiators! :) It is corrosive t...

Re: My Falcon went to black screen

Question : is the 32 Mhz oscillator also in charge of delivering the 16 Mhz? Is it the COMBO IC that delivers this 16 Mhz based on the 32 MHZ at its inlet? Yes, the COMBEL accepts the 32 MHz clock input on pin 20, and divides it as necessary to produce the 8 and 16 MHz clocks on pin 191. Yep! Combe...

Re: My Falcon went to black screen

I'm not 100% sure, maybe someone can check.. But I think the Falcon boots firstly into 8MHz mode and switches into 16MHz later on. That is correct. Oh, I just had a thought too! You don't still have the diag cartridge in do you? I have a feeling (although I could be wrong) that the diag cart uses t...

Be careful posting that, because if he finds out you're talking to me, it'll be the last time you ever buy from BeST. :(
