A bit of component scavenging from old boards as mouser order is delayed. Am finding this a lot from several places recently.

Still working on renovating the TT and realised it doesn't have a keyboard cable as I was using an MSTE keyboard I already had on the desk to test.

Time to improvise and build one up.

@Icky If you decide to get some of your new VME replacement PCBs fabricated, I would really like one to build myself, let me know if/when the opportunity arises I can send some money to help cover cost.

Hi Steve, It's still in design stages as other projects are getting in the way :)

I'll let you know when I do a batch.

Still a lot more refurbishments and updates to go. This is going to make someone a nice little TT when it's finished.

@PhilC consider yourself painted :mrgreen:

I am not sure how I am going to give this TT a new home yet but I am a great believer in pay-it-forward so watch this space.
