Re: IDE podules - 8 and 16 bit versions

Hello

Missed the boat by miles perhaps but as I’m hoping to acquire/ fix up an A3000 I would love an 8bit board for an A3000.

If there’s a wait list / wish list! I’d love to be on it if ok

Tia!:)

Re: Anyone remember a four colour ballpoint pen plotter?

It was a great little printer, same mech used in the Atari 1020 as well

The gears age and crack so don’t move the paper

They can be replaced with a particular part from a model helicopter... I can search it but google Atari 1020 gear model / radio control and I think you’ll find it

Cool idea daniel. Power pins are a must as some of us are reckless enough to want to tap power from inside the host computer rather than a usb psu :)

About how much current do these draw anyway?
