D12 is a little too tiny for regular work, here’s the D16: https://au.element14.com/hakko/t18-d16/tip-soldering-1-6d/dp/1829165

It’s worth getting a bunch of tips to see what you like personally though. Stick to the genuine Hakko ones. They last forever, just add a bit of solder on the end of the tip when you power down to stop oxidisation.
I was looking at the Mektronics website as they were the cheapest retailer at under $10, but they sold out of the 16 model.

The next cheapest is https://core-electronics.com.au/hakko-t18-d16-soldering-tip.html.

Have you ordered from them before?

I haven’t, but as long as they’re genuine tips you can’t go wrong really. It’s why I stick to places like Mektronics, Element14, Mouser, Digikey, etc. because they don’t sell the copycat stuff.

I see. I would have jumped into the Element14 website, but their shipping at $15 is a killer.

If you're Brisvegas, I could use a couple of things and happy to join in if you need to get over the free shipping threshold :)
Already placed my order. Turned out there were quite a few things I needed anyways :D

Sorry mate.

All good, thought I'd jump in if you needed to get over the line - I've got a list going and I do an order when I have enough to cover free shipping

Hope all is well lads :D, just wanted to know if there is a better source than ebay/aliexpress for the altera usb blaster (clone??) in aus. Only require it to update my cps2 av board but I'd guess it'd be good to have nonetheless. P.S where is the best place for an aussie to order a cps2 multi kit :P, somewhat out of the loop. Cheers!

Who got the NNC? :D

Definitely cheaper than zax and the 110 shipping would've made this a great price with that Toshiba pf

Me!

First off hi! been meaning to introduce myself. Been a lurker for some time and have been pestering Murray about some Exceleena II stuff ':^)

I own a few cabs now, IIDX, Pop'n Music, a Beatmania Mini, remnants from a Pump It Up cabinet and as far as candies go, an Exceleena II, a NNC and an Astro City 2. I'm mostly a rhythm gamer these days but shmups is what started it all, so I've been getting back into the swing of things with Ketsui (Thanks again Tim!)

So about that NNC.

Quick rundown
  • Came with this JAMMA harness installed https://www.rs2006.co.jp/e/jamma_harness/index.html
  • No burn in, but picture was a wee bit dim, sent the chassis off to Jomac and have been using a spare in the mean time.
  • All JVS wiring, boards, PSU, etc, it's all there.
  • Never taking that risk again. Becaaauuuuusee...
I went on to grab one of the Astro City 2's as well. Pictures and video will only tell you so much. But I knew for a cabinet from 1994 there's gonna be a few things terribly wrong.
  • Original tube with some burn in, chassis was swapped with a Weiya C2929.
  • Chassis was ziptied to the monitor frame, just 1 ziptie, you could hear it clanging as we pulled the tube out.
  • No original wiring, all been replaced - poorly.
However I'm a sucker for restoring things, and no matter what I want this thing living and breathing again. So I've been slowly chipping away at it.

But after having spent that much on a lemon instead of a cave PCB or multi, I think I deserve a dunce hat.

I'll post a family photo soon ':^)
Nice to meet you all!

As long as it's a Toshiba PF, that's all good! Joey works on the Toshiba PF? Makes me want a NNC more now! :)

I have a naomi universal that I've restored and I don't think I'd ever let it go, so the goal is to get a Toshiba PF just for that cab.

Welcome aboard mate..

If any Aussies have an AxunWorks CBOX *without* button remapping and wants to upgrade, please let me know. @drfunk2k has sent me chips for users down under. They’re free, just pay a couple of bucks for me to ship one to you.

Hey guys I’m keen on a header and move strip that’s on Yahoo Japan. What do people use to buy from there? I’ve used import monster before for shipping stuff but just for a postage item I’m sure there’s an easier way. Any tips appreciated thanks.
