    Aw, I built through-hole stuff for years with a cheap 2-temperature iron that I bought at RadioShack in the 1990s. Main reason I bought a new one was that it was getting difficult to find tips for...

    A cheap ISA VGA card off ebay will get you going. Since you have a 16-bit ISA bus, you have a lot more choices, so that's good.



    If everything looks good, I'd just plug it in and try to power...

    Is it the card itself that doesn't work with CDROMs? I have an XTIDE BIOS on a network card in a 486 machine (to make it support LBA hard drives), but I am using a 16 bit IDE controller rather than...

    I have a parts board that is missing some keycaps. If RadRacer can't get you one, let me know and I'll look.

    Where are you located? I'm in the east. Shipping may be prohibitive if you're in the...

    Yeah, I only have one circuit up here at the moment.

    "Decent" ammeter, you say. My tools are made of only the finest Chinesium. I trust them implicitly (not). :3

    I'm trying to decide what to work on next. Which project would best entertain y'all with my incompetence? :3

    (There is also a PiDP-11 kit to assemble, but I forgot to mention it.)

    Hi. I'm here from that other thread.

    I don't have an RLX, but IIRC whenever I install a hard drive of any sort on my HX (via a PLUS-to-ISA adapter), be it 8-bit SCSI or XT-IDE, it completely...

    Alright, thanks. I have the thing buttoned back up and on the shelf, and something else on the bench at the moment, but I am sure I'll get back to this soon. I'll also try to measure current...

    WOW! What a find!

    Please keep a restoration log and keep us informed, if it's not too troublesome. Beautiful machine!!

    Well, I checked on this today, but didn't make any progress.

    The PSU is a very simple linear supply with 3 different secondary windings.

    If you are only interested in salvaging the data off the floppies, it would probably be best to get some kind of 2000s-era machine that is new enough to run a modern Linux distro, but old enough to...

    How exactly is it giving you trouble? The only speed bump I had with mine is I didn't realize at first that I had to re-flash the rom with different settings if I changed the dip switches.

    There was some kind of "JaffyDOS" (not Jiffy) that Adrian mentions liking best in one of his videos, iirc. At least I think it was him that did the video about all the different DOS...

    Oh yeah, alright. I was having a dumber-than-usual moment, heh. Thanks again.

    Alright, thanks! I don't think I have any that big on hand, so I guess I'll order some and keep using the terminal in the meantime. I wouldn't think it would fry any of my other equipment without...
  19. 50 VAC between terminal chassis and logic ground?

    Hey guys.

    So I have this Zenith Z-19 serial terminal. I was trying to look at some serial waveforms earlier in the day to suss out a mistake I made on a cable, and discovered a sine wave...

    I used to do that kind of stuff in a little prefab storage shed in the backyard, back before I moved back out to the countryside into this old shack. Buried an extension cord out to it, heh.

    I have the 70MHz Hantek. Supposedly you can convert it to 200 MHz by removing two capacitors and flashing the firmware.

    It's alright, but I still use my B&K 1510 or Eico 460 whenever I can. They...

    Yes. In fact, the XTIDE BIOS will support LBA PATA drives just fine (although MSDOS won't let you use more than about 8Gb; FreeDOS however has FAT32 support...). I currently have an XTIDE BIOS...
