I'm located in US (East Coast).
I need to check board revision, and I would rather have CF card installed on ide adapter.
I'm UK so can't help I'm afraid, but the info will still be of use.

Re: I need somebody to upgrade my ST (memory, Tos and IDE)

You probably need to start with whereabouts you're located in the world. I'd second this statement, we can't help if we don't know where you are. Also, you simply say "ST", so it would also help if you could elaborate on what model it is, as a 520ST is not the same as a 520 STF or STFM. Knowing wha...

Re: Which 1040 STF is this?

If a ground or VCC pin really wont budge I always: 1. Try to remove as much solder as I can from the top and the bottom using good solder braid and sometimes try again with fresh solder applied, 2. Add a little solder to the offending pin. 2. I unsnap all the other pins with a dental hook, and then...

I am interested, but as also in for one of smonsons shifter boards, cost will play a part. Are you able to give me an idea of how much it'll be?
The IDE board will be less than £10 I imagine, its not going to include many parts.
In that case, I'm in too.

Re: ST RAM upgrade

FYI I have a Marpet style MMU+Shifter SIMM adaptor upgrade in my 520ST like this: marpet.jpg I have to say, it's a snug fit, but was the only way to get the machine working easily, because there were so many issues with the onboard RAM. The upgrade exxos posted a link to is the much more modern equi...

I've got a couple of boards well placed as test rigs, including one with a PAK 68/20 which would be quite interesting to try it out on.

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. I'm sure you're aiming this at the orginal poster, but I'm just using this simple thermostatically controll...
