    That's all I use is cheap DMMs. Right now have a yellow no-name for my general computer/guitar electronics stuff, and then a dirty older red one for my cars. The red one is about 15 years old. The...

    I'd never really look to a Fry's for "vintage" kit. I mostly saw them as a source for components. What kind of sucks is when I moved to Reno in 2018, our "Sandy's" was already dead (it was like a...

    If it helps make anyone feel better I have 1.5K Subs and I'm sure I'm doing lousy as well. Of course, most of that 1.5K is from over a decade ago when I started out before Google bought the platform...

    I don't really "display" anything like you would a vintage guitar in a glass case or a vintage car on a turntable. My stuff is used, and used hard.

    This thread reminds me of the IBM PS/2 Model 70 386 I picked up with my old bandmate in 2002. It was infested with spiders, rolly polleys, ladybugs, anything else you could think of. Everything was...

    I did not read the whole thread so sorry if it's already been suggested but this is what I do. I use 80GB HDD in most of my vintage boxes now....they're cheap, easy to get, and quite fast.

    Might be worth the save if you can find a keyboard. One thing I'm working on myself is possibly rehousing not one but two different extra guts I have for my NEC Versa machines using ACrylic. ...

    I'm not sure how specific you want, but you might be able to get away with a regular 10K Ohm pot with Linear sweep with the shaft reshaped to fit the Compaq Knob. I used to have one of these so I...

    Looks kind of like the boards the TwinHead Slimnote 486's had but for a 386. I've had two of those in my time.

    You know what, I hear about capacitor failures all day on vintage computers but so far I can only count on ONE hand the number of capacitor failures I've seen actually fail is almost nothing - this...

    I downloaded all of the NECAM FTP from Archive.Org (I have 3 486ish era Versa E/M/P myself) - I saw the Multispeed drivers and whatnot in the directories, so if you need those, I have that.
