Sold: Acorn BBC Micro model B with 1770

Post by cmorley » Mon Aug 05, 2019 5:21 pm

Hello All,

I am trying to do a bit of decluttering so I have this Issue 4 Model B for sale. The case is OK but the black plastic is broken. There is a chip at the back of the lid too. The machine works but needs some TLC from the new owner.

The D key is a bit dodgy - I squirted it with contact cleaner and it works again now but it probably needs a propper clean.

The audio is quite noisy on this one so recap if you care about that. Otherwise working fine.

It is fitted with a 1770 upgrade. Recapped in 2017 by me with Kemet caps (no paper RIFA rubbish in my machines [-X ).

Machine £100 (ex fees). Will be decently packed - UK P&P £10 (via UPS) or collection from Oxford/next ABUG is OK.

I can throw in a user guide and a Welcome tape too if wanted. Can combine P&P if you buy the disc drive too :)

Chris

OP (original post). No. No it is PAL.

If you want a warranty then speak to Mark at Retroclinic. He does high quality refurbs. This machine is as is.

Since this didn't sell on eBay I fixed it up a bit:

I cleaned the keyboard and washed all the keycaps. All the keys work fine now.

I fitted it with one of Tricky's SD card readers. I also fitted one of my 32KB sideways RAM modules and a 64KB EEPROM module preloaded with MMFS and SmartSPI.

You can have it in a box with polys if you want.

£140 (ex fees) + £10 UK P&P (UPS courier). I will ship internationally at cost.

Nice machine electrically with some cosmetic damage to the lid unfortunately.

Would it also be possible to post some closeups if the damage to the case and keyboard area?
Pretty sure I can 3D print a black plug to fill that hole by the keyboard. I would like the box and polly’s As they will be great for shipping. Cheers!

The original Acorn speech upgrade came with a black plastic plate that clipped over the hole left when you removed the cutout for the cartridge slot, so the slot was covered when not in use (which was all the time, given that Acorn never made any cartridges).
May be a nice thing to reproduce so it looks official.

Can provide measurements and photos if required.
