Don't have many images from my old job but I was with this company for nine years and here are a few images anyway...

one of the MPU's I used to repair. Z80 based.

020.jpg (33.29 KiB) Viewed 3108 times
me working hard.. Actually I patched the test rig so it would loop through all the tests itself four hours if needs be. The got rather boring to keep pressing switches all the time and watching lamps so built some circuit so the test rig would run by itself. For some reason the managers were never impressed with my ingenuity..

test rig with my few add-ons.

new guy Alan. He used to get told off constantly for reading the parts catalogues from cover to cover.
