Will post later this weekend my new items of januari. All kinds of stuff, smaller and mostly just nice to have.
Anyway…a set of two breadbin’s, a monitor, printer, some joysticks and software and a hardware speedloader was offered on Marktplaats. The photo was not showing the monitor, and I was primarily interested in the hardware speedloader. Bidding went up to 130 euro..quit a lot, but I won and drove up to amsterdam to pick it up.
Long time since I got a set this dirty, but then again, if it is only dirt…Need to do some serious cleaning. On my trip to Amsterdam I was just thinking, what if the I get there and the monitor was a 1701. That would be nice 🙂
The monitor was a nice looking 1084s, compleet. The two breadbin’s where both failing, the assy was the 425 (meaning everything is soldered except vic/sid). While troubleshooting I misplaced a working PLA with the SID, ending up with a broken PLA.
The speedloader was a Mikrotronic Floppy Flash, some loose wires of the ribbon, we can fixed that. We also need a 1541 kernal, because it was not included (there was a 1541 diskdrive, but not the one used for the speedloader). And a need a socket for the 6522 to connect the ribbon to the 1541 drive.
Then I remembered that i did have some boxed speedloaders somewhere in my collection….I did a check up to find myself a brand new, complete Floppy Flash boxed. One of those days….there was no point in spending the time and the money 🙂
Will sell of the broken C64’s, the 1541, fix the floppy flash and sell it, and sell the other 1084s monitor I have and will keep this one in my collection. Keeping a joystick and some of the software (some original software disks, but no manuals etc).
So…end result. Five hours spend, 130 euro. A waste of time and money.
