Come to the VCF (Vintage Computer Festival) on November 4th and join in the fun by building a replica 1 at the replica 1 workshop. As a attendee of the workshop you will receive a replica 1 kit that you will assemble at the workshop.

Don't have much soldering experience? No problem, a mostly assembled version will be available upon request. Just bring your soldering iron, solder, needle-nose pliers, wire cutters and a multi-meter, and have fun in a class-room type environment. Ever wanted to build your own computer from scratch, now is the time.

The replica 1 requires a power supply, keyboard and monitor for operation. These will be available at the workshop for testing your replica 1 after you complete assembly.

Price of the workshop is $149 and that includes the replica 1 kit (A $10 savings from the retail price). The class is limited to 10 people so that I can spend as much time as necessary with everybody.

Visit the replica 1 workshop for more information:

Hope to see you there,

Vince

replica 1 kit

I just purchased the replica 1 kit. I have no soldering experience. The web site recommends building "basic kits prior to attempting construction of the replica 1" Could you recommend some specific basic kits that I could purchase and assemble prior to attempting the replica 1?
Thanks
