Thanks.  I'm pretty happy

Thanks.  I'm pretty happy with it so far.  I am going to do the Uncle Bernie super duty reliability mods next and then put together the transformers, power switch, fuse, etc..  Then build the Gen 2 ACI.  I have one of Newton Mike's Datanetics clone keyboards.

 

I'm going to make a wood case.  I have a period correct Radio Shack tape recorder and I'm looking for a Sanyo or similar 9" B&W monitor.

 

Anyway...  now that I read back all of that I've still got a lot of work left to do!

Yeah, those capacitors came

Yeah, those capacitors came from Mouser electronics up in Mansfielf, TX (near Ft. Worth).  I like them because they are close enough that I usually get next day delivery.  I also got the transformers and a bunch of other parts needed for an Apple-1 build from them.

The motherboard PCB came from

The motherboard PCB came from Newton Mike (who is a member here) and the IC kit is one of Uncle Bernie's famous ones.  I also have one of Newton Mike's Datanetics keyboard clones.  Right now I think this is about the best combination of parts you can get.
