Forum rules
You're welcome to trade Acorn-related stuff with other forum members here - the rule of thumb to follow when trading, is that items or services offered should be of interest to our Acorn community. Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of. This forum is not for advertising items you have for sale on ebay or other third party marketplaces.

Yes, it is.
The extra board (the 2nd processor board) is however supposed to be fitted to the main board.

CPC have the Duratool Desoldering station at 25% off the normal price, which works out at £59.99:
https://cpc.farnell.com/duratool/d00672 ... /SD0138408

This offer is valid until 19th October I think.

Good price! I have been really impressed with mine, it doesn't behave like the cheapo thing that it is.

We were just having a similar discussion.

My guess is minimum £5K but haven’t run the numbers. What a nightmare lot to auction on eBay though, given the frequency of winning bidders just deleting their accounts and other shenanigans. Presuming it’ll get cancelled as soon as someone makes a sensible ballpark offer offline.

Hmm. Maybe ten to fifteen people off here putting in a couple of hundred quid each.... But then how would you divide it all up?

If it were to run to auction end, and given it's already near ₤2,000 with eight days to go, I could see it pushing toward ₤10,000...

Looks like an Acorn Atom Disc Pack's power supply (no floppy drive or controller card) converted for some other purposes.
