Apple IIe Diagnostics Card 2018 version!!!

Well,

I soldered the prototype of the Apple IIe diagnostics together today with the parts I sourced and it works!!!!

I included a picture of the screen and the card.

I soldered Machined sockets on the card so I can use it as a test Jig. Also, I didn't solder the black ROM socket either.

I am going to put a few more of these together this weekend, but you will see them soon on Henry's RM page to buy.

WooHoo!!!

Thanks,
Jay

I added another board I made from another fabricator and it worked too!!!

As already mentioned, I'm interested to buy one board, too. Maybe with parts like the switch and the 21** ICs if feasible.

Many thanks for your great effort.

Thanks Everyone! I am having

Thanks Everyone! I am having 5 assembled and 10 kits made for KFEST. Not sure of the price yet, but I will let you guys know once I run the numbers.

Not looking at making a killing, just want to recoup my costs.

BACK FROM KFEST - It was a blast!!!

Back from KansasFest and these boards were a hit.

I have one assembled board left and 2 kits left.

Asking $109.00 for the assembled board and $89.00 for the Kit

Both boards include a detailed assembly guide and a copy of the operational manual from the Apple Service Manual from 1983.

PM me if you want one. You can see what an assembled board looks like back in the first post. It will have a third ROM socket and have freshly burned Revision B ROMs.

As for selling just the boards and the hard to find parts (the switch and the 2112A RAM chips, I can possibly do this if I do another run. It will all depend on the demand.

Thanks,
Jay

2114A IC's

For those looking for 2114A IC's, see eBay Item # 152829423455 on sale for $1.20 each (12 for $10)
These appear to be Intel originals dated 1971. Great deal.

Also interested on bare boards...

Jay,

Good job on cloning the card. Please put me down for another bare board... If you are not planing to make another batch maybe you could publish the gerber files. Smile
I have hundreds of 2112s and the toggle switches, I could trade if you are interested...

An beautiful card, a great

An beautiful card, a great kit with excellent instructions. Jay is even so thoughtful that he includes a magic eraser in the kit.
Now I just need to find a machine with trouble so I can really diagnose something, all I know so far is that it pass both my working machines with flying colors.

Hi J,

Hi J,

I don't have the RAM chips yet... but if you have some spare it might be an option to get them from you, too.

 

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Torsten, 

Hi Torsten, 

 

Reason I am asking is that they are tougher to get than the switches.   Last batch I ordered from eBay, I thought I was going to be retired before I received them.  :-)    They were coming from China and got stuck in the "system".   I didn't think I was ever going to get them.  I am afraid to order another batch, but I bought a bunch of them a few years ago. Let me see what I have. 

 

I have been selling the "bare bones" kit on ebay which is the board, switch, 2 2112A chips, and the two ROMs for $30.00.  I could even burn you the German ROMS if you want.  I have one of those left on eBay, but I think I have enough boards to make one up for you.   What's you post code in Germany? 

 

J

Apple IIe diagnostic card

Hello Sir, 

I just joined this really great site and am looking for a Apple IIe diagnostic card. I see you offer one on ebay, which I can't seem to find. Would you be willing to send the link? Looking for the the "bare bones" kit which includes the board, switch, 2 2112A chips, and the two ROMs (US English). 

 

Any help would be great! 

 

Thank you in advance for your time and efforts,

hal9000 (Yes, I am a person and not the computer :) )
