Well after gathering all the "outside" parts like a keyboard and making a few buying mistakes (rule 1 learned, never just buy old parts, buy whole systems for parts), My 11 year old an I began the adventure of building a working Apple I recreation.
We started by learning to solder last week. I had him create an Apple II plus to Apple I adapter and also create a Velleman kit from Radio Shack.
This week we actually tackled part of the Mimeo... The Apple Cassette Interface (ACI). Next week we start the motherboard, unless he gets his homework done early and we will do some in the week. We won't get work done every week, but hopefully we will finish the board by the new year!!!
