Had a little extra time to finish a couple projects this July 4th weekend, one of them being a Phasor kit sold by Reactive Micro. Henry does a great job putting this together with all parts well organized and clearly labeled for easy assembly. I really enjoyed putting this together.
While in the process, I made a few changes (well, improvements in my way of thinking) that I thought I would share with the group.
All IC sockets changed to vintage Augat gold machine-pin sockets.
Changed all resistors to the standard color-band resistors that don't wash off with cleaning solvents.
Added an 8-pin socket under the DIP Switch.
Changed the 220mfd Capacitors to ones that would sit flat on the board as designed.
Added Tantalum capacitors in place of the vertical electrolytic capacitors.
Changed the Rockwell R6522 IC's to vintage Ceramac & gold R6522ACE chips.
Added two Votrax SSI-263 Speech chips. (cost me more than 2 Phasor kits! Ughh!!)
Re-Labeled the GAL's for easier identification.
Here's a photo to share of the build:
