I bought one of the boards on ebay from newton-computer with cosmetic issues and have been educating myself on parts, philosophy, etc. while awaiting delivery. I will be digging through a local parts surplus house for parts later today for some gems - we'll see if I have any success (sadly, they are closing up shop soon so I need to make as many future project wishlist purchases ASAP). Guidance and pointers are always welcome but I'm hoping to dig most of what I need from reading this forum.
