    Hm! All I know for sure is, both the ones I've opened up had foam.

    Yeah, if it works I wouldn't mess with it, unless black dandruff comes out when you hit it with the air chuck. D:

    Ha, nice. :D

    Me, I'd sell the PGC and use the proceeds to fund the rest of the project, lol. But iirc those PGC cards can drive a VGA monitor (if it accepts composite sync), if you make an...

    I'm in the same boat as you, in the middle of rebuilding one with disintegrated foam. Indeed, the nasty foam is the only reason I took it apart to begin with.

    I assume that the purpose of the...

    This is what I've been using lately, since I retired Old Faithful. It's definitely pure Chinesium, but it hasn't caused any trouble so far. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RY5XWVG

    My dad kept the farm books on a Rev B Apple IIe, using software that he wrote himself, from 1983 until the spacebar broke in 1997. So I put together a Win95 box for him, he switched to Quickbooks,...

    Shove it towards the rear of the case a little as you seat it, and it ought to go down in and line up fine. I've had boxen where the manufacturing tolerances were similarly loose that took a little...

    Yeah, but then you miss out on all the fun of assembling it and that sense of accomplishment when it's finished and working, if you buy a completed one. :3 That sense of satisfaction when you have...

    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.
