This project is way more involved than you think it is.

Buying one of these boards and just putting an external 70 watt power supply I already own in the case would be a neat and simple solution. I also realised I had already bought something from this guy, his Bob Rewinder kit that lets you refill dishwasher cartridges at home so I guess I already know he delivers. 2022-10-08 7:19 am Arawn Usually what fails in the Beeb’s PSU are a couple capacitors that blow, and usually it’s fixable with a capacitor kit: https://coolnovelties.co.uk/coolnovelties/bbc-micro-acorn/281-bbc-micro-model-a-b-psu-power-supply-capacitor-kit.html 2022-10-07 8:31 am Drunkula Nicely done! 2022-10-07 11:43 am spiderdroid I want to do the same with my old Tandy 1000 EX 2022-10-07 1:38 pm Flatland_Spider We’re missing the real news here. Authentic ’70s carpet still exists! Anyway, why this board is almost ATX before ATX would be an interesting dive. Convergence of form because it’s the easiest, or something else? 2022-10-07 4:03 pm spiderdroid IMO, it’s better than the usual IOS/Android news 2022-10-10 2:35 pm Flatland_Spider This is a cool article. I thought the carpet comment in the article was funny. 🙂 2022-10-07 10:25 pm CapEnt That RGB back illuminated board is just a treat for the eyes, brilliant! 2022-10-08 2:34 pm Athlander This looks great! My BBC B is looking a bit tired and is missing its PSU – this has given me some ideas!
