I finally build up the courage to start my build, having acquired all of the parts, watched way too many videos, and read / reread all of the available guides.
My build is using:
- Uncle Bernie's parts kit, and his ACI gen2.
- Newton PCB
- Newton keyboard
- P-lab jukebox
- Misc parts from digikey.com, anchor electronics, eBay, etc.
- Super high quality copies of the original manuals (incredible! )
- Eventually some kind of case and or display mounting. TBD
A huge thanks to this forum and all of the enthusiasts here and above who made this possible.
I'm going slow because the build (for me) is a ton of fun. I build as many retro kits as I can get my hands on since I'm an old heathkit fan.
I'll post my progress as I go, just a few components soldered down now. I test everything as I go, which usually improves my success rate.
