Mike posted via usenet comp.sys.apple2 a progress report on his Apple ][ Rev 0 recreation project, and hinted at possibly selling his extra boards off as kits. Mike’s announcement is attached, and we hope he’ll consider making more.
My Rev0 recreation project has had a major milestone as I received the first batch of 6 PCBs earlier this week. I have on hand, all parts, except the decals for the memory jumper blocks, which are on order, and Apple ROMs, which must come from a donor Apple II. I think that the boards look great. The only slight glitch, so far, is tight fit for the expansion slot connectors. I specified a hole size smaller than I should have. The fit is tight, but not impossible.
I’m in process of putting together the first one and it is going rather well. I have a link to a scan of the bare PCB on my recreation page.
I’ll be putting up some pictures of the assembly and bring up process as I go forward. I can’t wait to replace that flaky Rev 3 that currently resides in my Apple II with one of these brand new beauties.
I plan on keeping 2 boards and selling the extras. I am leaning towards selling them as kits, with all parts included to build up the motherboard, except the Apple ROMs. Part of the reason that I am leaning toward the kit approach, is the fun I’m having putting my first one together. Let me know what you think.
