Full Day of Soldering

It’s been a busy and long day. I’ve managed to get quite a few boards done and out today. I’m taking a pause with these on the bench for tomorrow morning.

CD32 Ready to Go!

This is one of the more rare NTSC units. Happy to say it’s working awesome and will continue to do so for years to come after a recap. Thanks for being so understanding and trusting me with all of your machines. It really does mean a lot to me having all of you put so much trust into my work and being understanding of the extended times it can often take me to get them back.

Home Again

I just got back from an exhausting month away. Rest assured I will be finishing up the last few of the repairs I’ve had in soon. I’ll need a few days to get back in this time zone. I’d also like to finish up what I have before taking anything else in for a short time.

As always, thanks for understanding and it’s good to be home.

Away Again for Work

For anyone looking to get things looked at, quotes or status updates I will not be available after today for about three weeks. I may have a slight chance to check in on Facebook but wouldn’t count on it. I should be able to get back to answer any inquiries about March 22nd or shortly after. Thanks as always for understanding.

Greetings Everyone!

Its been a rough start of the year for me. As you all should know, and those that don’t I hope will understand the repair of classic systems isn’t a full-time job for me. I do this work mostly out of the love for the platform and to ensure they continue to live on. That being said I have had a lot of things sent in over a very short time. With my full-time regular job taking my time, me just getting over a massive case of the flu and a long trip scheduled to start on February 24th through March 23rd things WILL be returned slowly. I just want to make sure you are all updated and know I am working my best to get things done. As always if you can’t wait I fully understand and just ask you contact me so we can arrange for a return before I leave on the 24th.

The Next Replica Project!

Several of you have been asking what will the next replica project I take on be? Well I think a lot know the answer to this now, but let me share with you. It will be the 4000T! Things have been put into motion already with the same place I had help me get the 4000D boards completed. I have lots of data collected and turned over, a blank NOS board on it’s way to me from a friend and I have had some of the daughter board modules made so I can supply blanks for them to reverse and not need to take apart an assembled set.

The next phase of the project will be to get a quote from them on the cost of this. I will once again be on hand to help with all I can do which will lower the cost down in the same way as it did before. I will also be making a batch of boards again to sell off once complete to get the price per board as low as we can for the first of you interested in them, and finally it WILL all be posted open again on GitHub as a project for anyone to do with as they please, just as the previous one is.

Once I get a price quote and have an idea of what it will be you will all see the GoFundMe page go live. I am also going to start another PayPal account specifically for the project for those of you wanting to help with donations this way. Just understand that it will be difficult to show credit on the main page of who has made a donation this way. The solution I may do is to post weekly updates and list all of them by hand in that.

Thanks again for all of your continued support! I will be posting anything new as I get it in.
