  1. Projects building up again.

    A couple of months ago, I was worried that I was running out of projects, not now.

    My XT 5160 is a bit battered, but the bezel is glued back together and the case has been hammered back into about the right shape. Just need some car body filler to remove the surface defects then it will be time to paint. Not sure how to make the splatter, might experiment with nozzle modification of rattle cans. Reading up, a nozzle fitted with a short straw can be used to create a splatter.

  2. World of IBM, Intel multibus plus a new PDP 11 !

    My PCW9512 is sort of working and the Gotek is installed and was at a bit of a loss what to do next

    I managed to obtain a rack mount Micro PDP-11/73 that will need some care before powering up, but also saw a basket case 5160 on Ebay that was near enough to go and pickup, so went for it and now its mine

    The front bezel is split in two and the case is bent on the right hand side, just where the Hard Disk is , so that unit is very suspect, but hey ho.
