    If you paid a reasonable price, you at least outbid him at some point -- I've had him bid on several of my listings, he never has a reasonable max bid, just looking for cheap deals.

    Sorry, ENIG is not a comparable or appropriate surface finish for card edges if you intend for the board to last. A layer of gold a few atoms thick won't stand up to a single insertion with high...

    They're still available from various suppliers. The ones pictured were removed from scrapped CNC boards, though.



    I have the tool for riveting them on with tubular rivets:

    Yes! The edges had to be dressed down with a file since this one was a prototype run, but I typically spec a 45 degree chamfer for production boards. I think conmega found the DEC-specified chamfer...

    RetroHacker_ and conmega were trying to figure out how to replace some missing boards in RetroHacker_'s VT05 and decided they would just make them by hand on protoboard. Unfortunately, Sark didn't...

    Hey there, it's probably mine you've found :P Many (most, in my experience) systems that came with a 1287 will work with a 12887. A handful won't, supposedly due to stricter timing requirements on...

    Yep, common use for XT-IDEs: copy the original onto whatever is hooked up to the XT-IDE, then remove the original and let the XT-IDE replace it.

    Well, Douglas's PCBs have actual hard gold plating for the edge connectors. That usually drastically increases the cost of a very small run of boards, so that's something to consider. Hard gold is...

    I've used Douglas's DEC-type extenders in the past, they do work. Beware that the connector isn't as deep as a regular DEC backplane connector, or at least the last ones I ordered weren't. Depending...

    Yeah, any of the originals will have dead or near-dead batteries. It's possible to cut into the originals and splice in a battery. The version you linked is considerably cheaper than the...

    The seller is a member on the forums here. Looks like a pretty straightforward DS1216 design. I'm sure it's not limited to Tandy applications.
