Time for an update!? I think so!
Hey Everybody, sorry for my long hiatus. To give you an idea of what's been going on the last few months:
February 9th: Received the keys to our new home! My fiancé and I sold our house in November of 2021 and closed in January 2022. We finally got the keys...
Yeah, I'm sure things are finally going to start moving this week or next. Lunar New Year usually ends on the 15th... and I think we can all attest to the lack of drive we have after the holidays haha.
Hey homie, sorry for leading you down the wrong path. The blast city is a new beast for me. The PSU is already grounded it looks like but someone else could fill in if I'm wrong. As far as chasing wires, the arcade-otaku wiki has some schematics: https://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Sega_Blast_City...
Hey homie, yes it does have to be on, so make sure you're ungrounded! Beyond that, I'm new to that process so I'd follow GeeDee's article and this video:
Glad you're already using a fume extractor, though! :)
- I started out with the Hakko FX-888D and it was a cool little device. It still isn't great for micro-soldering, but it gets the job done and I could do basically anything up until PS3 boards. (Still possible, just a pain in the butt).
- Another good option if you're on a budget...
He really is. I told him months ago I was in the market and he reached out to me so I was grateful he remembered. My fiancé and I are going to get an AirBnB and drive out to pick it up — Make a little weekend trip out of it. We’re really looking forward to it!
