8 bit corner - coming along nicely

Postby ViperSan » Sun Aug 20, 2017 11:25 am

So ..having built a play area /bench & shelf system in my playroom ..
Today I started filling it up.
The recently repaired PET 4032 and 8050 ...now joined by my Arfon expansion unit for the VIC20 ..
..again recently repaired ..as was the N model VIC20 ..
Had to replace a 6522 to get the tape to run ..and whilst it was in bits ..I did the S-video mod and made a breakout box for audio and S-Video..
The results on my LCD TV/Monitor are really rather good.
So here are a couple of pics to show where everything will eventually reside ..
Sadly no room at bench height for my C16 (also in need of repair) ...but there is room for the PET .. plus4 C64 and VIC ..
Nice to see them after 30 years in storage..

appologies for the bright-out on the monitor ..
forgot to cancel the camera flash .

Yep spacious is the key word. I wish I had the space to fire up all my stuff at once :(.
Congratulations on your PET setup BTW :)

Nice, I wish I had the luxury of an LCD. Here's mine: The C64 the 1541, 1525 printer, and the IBM PC, are under dust covers.
