FOR SALE or Trade: Misc Atari ST Key Caps

So I had a mishap cleaning my Atari ST Key Caps, very disheartening actually! Apparently they start to melt at around 120F, which is household hot tap water temperatures around here with dish soap. I have done this before with other keycaps, letting them soak in hot soapy water in a closed tupperwar...

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

Thanks all, after a snafu with the key caps, I am back in business.

Anyone had any advise on what size case screws I should pick up? I have all the shorter ones, at the bottom of the keyboard, I need the long ones that hold the top of the case together.

Re: Selling 2x ready built TF520 Cards

Do I just drop this in? How is compatibility with the 020? What TOS do I need?

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

What is "good" solder braid, what do you recommend? I want to recap the PSU soon too. I'm sure you're aiming this at the orginal poster Both actually, Ah, I know that soldering station(or one of its predecessors), we used to use those in our electronics classes. I'm a fan of the Weller Magnastat sty...

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

I'd suggest that you might want to look at getting an upgrade to TOS, as 1.02 isn't great. I'd go for 1.04, which you can get here: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/storenew/#0057 If you wanted to go for dual TOS, then there are options a little further down on that page. As for the floppy dr...

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

What kind of soldering iron/station are you using? Normally repairs will go pretty smooth with 380C, when using wick i also wick from the top (mostly C64), that cleans most of them up nicely. Hakko FX888D-23BY with a chisel tip, ~2 mil in width, just guessing. I thought that would be big enough, bu...

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

Plugged in the Floppy and nothing. Pulled stepper was seized, move it by hand worked it free, lubed it a bit. Worked once and died. Noticed if I pushed the transport down it moved smoothly, so flipped it upside down and banged the stepper a bit to get it to move ever so slightly. On my 486 I can now...

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

So, for the life of me took forever to get the solder out to do the composite sync mod, if I could have found my flux, would have probably helped... So after adding fresh solder and spending over an hour to get the board cleaned up, finally got all the components in. For the life of me I guess my ti...
