    I’m fully expecting to have to restore the entire machine. But when supply is limited, the person that got my money was the person that was willing to sell me something. That person was Yaton.

    Unfortunately there just isn’t much to choose from. Especially when I was ready with cash-in-hand.

    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.

    Well I’m glad to be helping a bit by de-mystifying the process for you! Lunar New Year celebrations end tomorrow, so shipping should start moving along. I’ll update as soon as I speak more with James.

    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...

    @misteraddons has some :) https://misteraddons.com/products/sdram-xsd-2-9-128mb I was going to DIY myself, but at $60 it wasn't worth my time and shipping cost to DIY it.

    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: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyGPws6Eu4Y Glad you're already using a fume extractor, though! :)

    Soldering Iron: - 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...

    Just to have one in the tool set. I’m sure the internal will work just fine; but I figured if I’m buying arcades, I’ll be buying / working with other CRTs and cabs down the road.

    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!
