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.
I’ve managed to get completely caught up with my back log of work. I’ll now be accepting work on a limited basis. Seeing as it’s the holiday season please understand it will be slow to arrive and return. I’ve also got plans to go out of town for Christmas like many of you.
If you are in need of a recap, upgrade or restoration please feel free to send a message.
I did some me time today and decided to build myself a matching A3660 in black for the A4000 I I did not long ago. It is working great and looks great too!
This Golden gate card had a bad suspect 486 on it. Let’s swap it out!
