Some odds and sods in my collection

Heres some of the odds and sods in my retro comp collection, this is a miniscule fraction of what i got.

Some of my Amigas...



A1200 Desktop Dynamite Pack, fair nick, keyboard has some yellowing tho



A500 Plus... this is in fantastic nick, no yellowing whatsoever. bought it from a old guy, it was his grandsons, was only played with occasionaly when he visited his grandads shop, it was kept in a dry dark celler, hense zero yellowing.



My "good" A600, compare yellowed as hell A600 keyboard beside it to compare colour, i forgot i even had this one till i came accross it today in one of my retro comp cupboards. note weird mouse, it isnt like the usual a600 type, nor is it the usual a1200 type, it is amiga, and it is made by commodore.. tried googling part number and amiga hardware guide to no avail.



mouse underside.



C64c i have two of these, this being the tattier of the pair, other is in mindbenders pack and mint.



My 2 Blizzard 1230IV Boards, one with FPU and 16mb, other no FPU and 4 or 8mb (unsure as unused for a long while) both @ 50mhz



Mixed Ram, most 1mb 72pin, 2x 4 mb and 2x32mb EDO (these 32s are to thick to fit my 1230s, as chips on both sides)

Now for some real nasty stuff (well to amiga diehards)



Mega ST2 and 520 STfm... these were some of my development machines (i used to do 68000 assembler ports back in the day) so hense amiga, st, and sega development hardware.



Some of my ST Spares Machines



I also have another 3 x A1200, 1 x A600, 2 x A500 Boxed, spare A1200 and 600 motherboards, Casings, Keyboards, external drives, Mice, Joysticks, CD Drives, Squirell SCSI (i found it today so not looking for one now, knew i had one somewhere! still need zappo CD drive cable tho)

ive a vast collection of other hardware, 2 x Sharp MZ's (80a and 711) 5 snes, 3 nes, 3 x saturn, 2 x dreamcast, 2 x ps1, 3 x megadrive, N64, etc etc etc... you get the idea

Items i am looking for... Commodore C16, plus/4, Boxed Breadbin C64 in good nick (i have a loose tatty one) C128, Disk drives for C64 and 128. Atari 800xl, atrai 2600 240v PSU. ZX81 boxed with proper sinclair ram pack, and Speccy 128 (not with built in cassete) and Sinclair QL. willing to trade, barter, or buy outright.

Indeedy Zetr0, have had that mega ST2 since it was new. forgot to mention its also upgraded with 16mb, tos 2.04.

here Zetr0 in your collection of bits, would you happen to have a CD drive suitable for a Squirrell? ie 50 way centronics? i have an external CD writer from my old mac but its the 68 centronics plug, same with the 10 gb external HDD, 68 way SCSI 3 tis a pain, lol all the terminators i have are 68 way as well also looking for 3.1 roms for A1200 and 600 im planning on going to os 3.9 (i picked up a cd) but at moment no CD drive or the required 3.1 roms... bah!

I have a spare zappo cd cable somewhere, i got the polarity wrong on the drive power supply so it doesnt work anymore but i'm guessing the pcmcia cable should be ok.

How much you looking for it Doog? and out of curiosity, what is the correct polarity? i have only a universal psu for multi voltage and positive or negative polarity, dont wanna blow this drive, its the one the guy gave me with the zappo yrs ago. i did find my squirell scsi interface, but would need to fluff around with gender changers and pinout changers to get my old mac external cd writer going with it, so figured the zappo is a more viable option at mo to try and get 3.9 on my 1200

its yours for postage when i find it.

If i recall, the center pin is negative, i assumed it was positive but alas.....killed it.
I only had the universal supply with it too but "borrowed" it for something else and didnt note down the original polarity .

I found the squirrel to be way better anyway, the speed was faster and cpu overhead greatly reduced in comparison to the zappo, although squirrels take some messing about to run in os3.9 properly.

Your (what appears to be) tongue and groove flooring seems to fall short of the skirting board.

Is that because you spent all your money on computer hardware?
