Jaycar taking the piss. $129.95 for a 500g roll of that crap?

Had to buy some supplies for work and was shocked at the prices of most of their basic stuff now, let alone all the AliExpress AIO arcade crap they’ve got there.

Bring back Tandy and OG Dick Smith any day. I still have a battery card from Tandy I wanna cash in this month ;)

Indeed. Used to be more expensive than ordering online but not unreasonable, especially if it meant you could have what you needed today and continue on with whatever you’re working on

$130 for a roll of no name brand solder is way out there. My local Jaycar store has really reduced a lot of their range too, not sure if that’s happening at all stores or they’re just out of stock of things

A long shot, however does anyone have an old Datapath X4 video wall controller they would like to sell?

@xb74 Thanks mate! Big fan of the Kanji buttons! Not sure this is the perfect cab for them but still like them a lot.
Mate those buttons look great on that cab. They turned out so well!
Thankyou again for the support, very much appreciated.

I’ve got some faulty PCBs to move on, some may be able to be fixed but I don’t have the time - others are parts boards.

Let me know if you’re interested in anything and I can send through photos

MVS 4 Slot (2)
MVS 4 Slot - Top board only (3)
CPS1 - Faulty A board (3)
System 16B - Motherboard (3)

I may have more, I’ll add it as I find it

Interested in the cans of spray if there’s any vintage Tuxan, Krylon or Rusto’s ;)

Nah, seriously looks like a goldmine of info and stuff there. Any tubes, rejuvenators or things useful to arcade peeps. I’d be keen on any late-early 80’s PC stuff and definitely any PVM, etc.

Documentation and books on repair like the one you posted too.

Dump some photos up!

Deceased estates of a relative are such an emotional roller coaster.

Good luck with it all. I'm sure there would be wide interest on here and also Aussie Arcade for equipment too.

Got someone in Adelaide with issues with issues getting his CPS-1 multi up and running.

Was wondering if anyone down there can help give it a look or has a spare CPS-1 stack/A-Board for him to test on / or even sell?

Let me know. I have people in Brissy, Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne to call on, but Adelaide is slim pickings.

Cheers.

@orio1 I have a can of the dark blue Tuxan here that I give a little spray every year or so, just to bring back the good old memories… there’s really nothing quite like it! Instant throw back to the late 80’s.

Awesome shots of the monitor in action , please take my money .... :)

I love that washed out faded retro look upstairs, really increases value :)


Correct me if I wrong , but it’s news to me about the manufacture of NAC’s in Taiwan ??

At least the panel looks original and “ un-punched” ...
