sounds like a perfect evening after the kids go to sleep!When I did my collection, I first inventoried PCB revision of all the B boards so that I would know how many of them needed the extra power wires. Then I pre-cut/tinned the wires before-hand so it was a smooth operation the whole way.
haven't seen one recently unfortunately. It took more than a year to find a blue one
Yep. It's pretty random. Sometimes you'll see Progears pop up on YAJ a month apart and then there will be a drought for the rest of the year. I had the inverse problem with Powered Gear. Looking for a long time and then all of a sudden like 6 of them surfaced over a couple months.I guess patience is key.
