For sale: Master and lots of other bits

Post by LordVaderUK » Tue Jul 14, 2020 1:07 pm

Hi all,
I find myself once again looking to offload all my retro stuff. My circumstances have changed this year (even more than everyone else!) and I don’t have the time or physical space any more for tinkering with lovely retro gear. Before I stick anything on fleabay, I wanted to offer it to folks here first. No reasonable offer refused! Please PM me if interested.

First we have my lovely BBC Master, recapped, and retrobrited back to its former glory...

The Master includes a SCART cable for connecting to a monitor.

Also, a lovely custom made cloth cover to keep the bugs out!

Rechargeable battery circuit, plus battery. Never got time to solder the two together... :roll:

Gotek drive, modified with display and rotary knob, complete with power lead and 40pin connecting cable. SOLD

I would like the ring bound manuals and the Gotek please.

And also the game Elite, if it's the disc version.

Lots of boxed Acornsoft software. Mostly tapes. In varying condition, none of the tapes or disks have been tested. If there’s a particular title here you’re interested in, let me know and I can provide photos of that particular item.

*bump* Master and many other bits still available. I’ll also stick it on eBay but would prefer it to go to a true devotee here on stardot.

I'm also interested in the BBC Master if you're prepared to ship to Guernsey (it's normally only a few quid more which I'd cover).

I can't PM you yet as I just joined the site. Are you able to PM me first so I can reply?

You wouldn't be able to reply via PM yet either (unless you use the "contact us" icon at the bottom of the page to ask an Administrator to enable it), but you could ask LordVaderUK for an email address instead.

It’s a lovely example of a Master, I’ve been eyeing it up on eBay too. In the unlikely event it’s still there when I get paid, I don’t think I’ll be able to avoid the buy button :D
I'll be highly medicated and my humour can be twisted, so when I offend you, its not intentional, honest :lol:
