Those are well known boards:

* A Big Benny real time clock
* A 16kB ram extension board

Re: Today I received.....

The disc pack has it's power lead cut off, which is a bit of a worry. If the pack PSU would have deemed been beyond repair for this man it would be a challenge to fix. It may be the case that the mains lead was cut off to use on something else. Apart from the transformer, everything else in the PSU...

Re: A slightly dog-eared Atom

Wim - Thought you might, I've actually ordered some Elk key switches as a plan of last resort - the only problem here is that I can't install such a fix for the M key, as a switch here would interfere with the space bar mechanism.

Re: Faulty Atom

IC23, which does the ROM select decoding, looks like it's been modified significantly. I'd try to understand what's that's trying to achieve. Any chance of a close up photo of that area?

Re: Beeb to go... (Portable)

My guess (left to right): Fuse holder IEC mains inlet Mains On/Off switch (rocker type) Mark I can understand this if there would be a internal psu for the floppy-drives, but, there is a original gap where a wire goes through for the external (from the Beeb) 5&12 V power of the floppy-drives... :-k...

Beeb to go... (Portable)

Hi,

I received this nice Beeb housing a few months ago... :D

Can someone tell me what need to be put in these three holes at the back of the housing? (last picture)

I presume the square one on the right should be a switch... :-k
