I started an initiative few years ago to teach ourselves about computers, it was called msxmakers because was initially focused on msx.
our project try to teach ourselves how to build new hardware.
So, my idea is not focus on repairing old hardware but build it, some times using as older chips as Woz, sometimes adding new chips as long as we can study them and understand it, but new pcb designs and with gpl schematics when possible.
I was not looking to focus only on msx but I don't like names using "retro" and I though some people won't mind that.
I was confused, but I will create a new logo to fix this, called DIY computers as brand.
We use/develop new cases, new power supply and / or new card devices, buying old hardware do not give us any knowledge.
This is my new Apple II wooden case, please, don't look at my MSX logo and think I cannot pay an old US case, or I don't like to break a computer to build another.
Now is painted (an glued).
I used a rev 0 mainboard, charROM pcb replacement, Eprom pcb replacement, raspberry pico vga, Brainboard, etc.
DAM ][ disk board is not full working perhaps because it needs prodos and I still have not Languaje card.
I preffeer to build an SRAM, through hole, gpl design, but I might need to design it by myself.
Even I know electronics, I have not too munch knowledge on 6502 or Apple II general use. I started to read several good books fount on the net.
Thank you all.
