    Makes you wonder if they have enough of the IP and design documents to just make some more!

    The work that requires the building is industrial control systems, mostly for the semiconductor manufacturing industry. Big, heavy chunks of stainless steel controlled by basically vintage computers....

    I Finally Bought a Building

    Work stuff has finally gotten to the point that I can't really use my shop in the basement of the house anymore, so I started looking at buying a building about a year ago. After a lot of run-around...

    Depends on the machine. I've bought nonworking parts machines to finish either personal projects or projects for other hobbyists that cost a significant bit, like parts bucket Altairs. I typically...

    I've got an Altair 8800 for sale at the moment: https://www.ebay.com/itm/274079460643 Though, with all the time that went into repairing it and getting it 100% functional, I'd rather see it used than...

    Welcome! Grew up in southern WV myself :) There's a fair number of us in your general area.
  9. WTB: DTC S-100 Host Interface (SASI Board)

    Well, a few years ago I had a heap of these, and I sold them off really cheap because I'd been looking for schematics/manuals for years and no one had them. And, like a month later, someone posted...

    RetroHacker_ and I have cleaned dozens of RL01 and RL02 cartridges using the "just remove the pack shield" method with very good results. Some of them were very dirty. Use 99% isopropyl alcohol,...

    I wouldn't disassemble the pack beyond removing the pack shield. They can't be reformatted for RL02 service so if you get a misalignment with the sector notches on the hub, it's done. Simply cleaning...

    I link to my Tindie store in my signature, figure it's on-topic and therefore appropriate.

  15. FS: MITS Altair 8800, repaired/tested/working, unexpanded 2-slot system!

    link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/274079460643

    Just finished repairing and testing this one. It came to me totally unexpanded: only two S-100 slots, containing the 8080 CPU board and MITS 1K static...

    Finally bought The Orange Box. Discovered that despite having discs it's Steam-only. And XP isn't supported now. At least it wasn't expensive :p

    Be really sure someone didn't thermal epoxy it on. Some of the brands out there *really* hold on.

    Glad you got your money back! I think they're more willing to refund when it's a small item. And no, it hasn't put me off retrofits, just sort of put me off the idea of being able to buy mystery meat...

    Excellent setup! They are neat machines indeed, RetroHacker_ has mine nowadays. Very advanced design for its time.

    The Vector 3 was a similar system, from Vector Graphic of course. If it's a Cincinnati Milacron product, that'd certainly explain the industrial-ish design: they made NC and CNC machine tools.

    Yep, still looking for the cable! I'd potentially be interested in drives, too!

    I replied via PM, but I'll post here as well: a likely cause is that the original chip was one of the Dallas modules that didn't have the "clear CMOS" pin. Some motherboards will tie this position to...

    Just edited to add 16-bit options :) The EtherLink II TP is a fairly long 8-bit ISA board, and OP said he needs a short one for the Tandy. Otherwise, yes, it's a good option if you want 8-bit ISA and...
