This 4000 while working somewhat after removing the clock parts and fast ram control parts (without the ability to have fast ram after) needed to be complete again. Happy to say its got fixed traces, all 16mb of fast ram and boots up nice. Still no clock circuit, but that was the owners decision.
I’ve done a quick review of the ScanPlus AGA and posted it to my YouTube channel. If you are looking for a solution to output an Amiga to a modern display, this may be it. Check it out at the link below.
I have a few more in stock since my minimum is 5 I can let a few go. I just ordered another batch as well and expect them by the end of the week. If anyone would like one they are $105 shipped to USA addresses and $110 rest of the world. This includes packing, shipping, paypal fees and the board itself. I can also supply my mouser cart with most of the stuff you need. I salvage the rest from boards I am repairing. These are USA made boards and are deep blue with gold electro plate contacts and traces.
For those wondering what it costs me to get them done I have no problem sharing that. I pay $309 per 5 boards. So I am not doing this to make a profit. I do it so others can benefit from getting a good quality board for a fair price that is tested before leaving the factory and will work if soldered correctly.
I’d like to thank everyone for all the support and patience throughout the year! It’s been a pleasure helping keep systems alive and well, and I look forward to what 2020 brings us all!
Some of you mail have noticed I have not sold any adapters, relocators or other projects I’ve built myself over the last couple months. Mostly this is due to the SLOW shipping from my parts supplier in China. I have just about given up on ordering some of the things I use from China because of this. I am currently looking for a better source for the bulk parts I get here in the US that will help speed things up. The issue is the price. Most of the places I find are just re sellers of the same types I get direct from China marked up double or more.
Also, I have been having a lot of issues sending small packages to the UK. Twice now I have a package that just goes missing once it leaves the US with no tracking updates after that. I may have to resort to sending it a slightly more expensive rate if this continues.
It’s no fun when your most used tips for you micro tweezers suddenly decide they are done. Right in the middle of a job I hear an alarm from my soldering base station and see the dreaded S-E error screen. Time to spend another $70 on a pair of tips. Bah!
It’s not often you do an A1000, but they sure look fantastic with a new set of caps on them and all cleaned up! This one should go another 35 years.
