    Good to know I've got options! Thankfully, it seems like FOG liked double density and that's all been a snap for my go-to disk authoring machine to write out. I hear certain 16-bit SCSI/FDD...

    Where does the Exmon pack into all this, out of curiosity? Mine's got DD, but doesn't have integrated composite out (only on the Exmon dongle). I also can't get external video at all (though...

    Thank you - lots of stuff to take in on that FOG collection. I just need to figure out how to write those single density images, now...none of my PC-based hardware have controllers that're up to the...
  4. Osborne 1: Non-stock and user-made software

    Anyone know where I might find some software made with an Osborne 1 in mind, ideally as loose files for transfer via KERMIT? Right now I only have the non-optional, double density-friendly CP/M...

    Chicagoland's an absolute suckfest for that kind of thing, somehow. At any rate, let me know how the cleanup goes! I've been working on a Osborne 1 myself, though it's the newer revision while you've...

    Just a flywheel swap, actually. Gonna have to find something compatible then, from the sound of it. At any rate, next call to business: the weird contact issues i'm having that're causing the machine...

    It's surprisingly readable, but understandably a bit cramped for extended use. Monochrome CRTs never fail to surprise me. As an aside, should the external video activate automatically? I notice the...

    Did a quick test swapping the spindle with one from a parts Tandon TM-100, and it worked in spite of the slightly smaller size! Read/write LED is out, but we're a step closer to home. Due to the...

    Yeah. At this point I'm thinking swapping in TM-100-1 mechanics is probably my best bet. Only thing is, the MPI drive is really badly documented so I don't have a pinout on the connectors...

    Aye. At this point I'm wondering if I can just swap out the MPI mechanics for the mechanics on my TM-100. They look very similar and the connector count is the same, so that just leaves the...

    Heat didn't do anything and an initial pass with the Kroil loosened things up a bit, though not enough to be usable. There's also an unusual amount of friction when it does move, too... Still trying...

    The 512 and 640 even made it stateside - Shame none of their more original fare didn't. The 640's got quite a novel form factor and it really doesn't feel that bad to use considering it was a budget...

    Yup. I think I need to lubricate the area, but I can't get to it without pulling the 6-32 screw. As for gently heating it...I hadn't thought of that. Would a regular butane torch of the sort used to...

    MPI 51M spindle badly seized

    So, I got my hands on an Osborne 1a and things have been proceeding essentially smoothly. However, I've hit a snag - the spindle on the A: drive is so badly seized from thirty years in an attic that...

    More VCFMW stuff: TRS-80 III or IV

    I think I wanna dabble in TRS-80 stuff, and feel VCF Midwest (Elmhurst, IL) will be a good place to make that happen - anyone happen to have a III or IV they'll be bringing along? thanks!

    New location in Elmhurst's pretty much a straight shot for me - two towns over. I'm hyped, and hoping to bring some interesting new machines home!

    From what I can tell, the Octane 2 was largely just a rerelease of sorts with slightly higher baseline specs and a different color case?

    Ah...I was expecting something more in the $200-$250 range. That seems to be the selling price for most readily available VC systems I've found, generally speaking, and my budget maxes out at $1000...
