Re: Falcon with SD FB HXC Rev F / 14MB RAM

This is the best way I have come up with for doing 2 IDE drives on a falcon. See pictures My boot drive is the CF card. with a IDE to CF adapter on one channel and a SD adapter mounted so it fits out the back of the case on the 2nd channel. Somethings to look out for: Not all CF cards are the same. ...

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

I sold this Falcon a while back. It was too much for me to deal with.
But I's like to make these change to my main Falcon. Can you post a couple pic of your mods? I have a Exxos new design PSU in it and this change may fix some intermittent problems I have on boot.

Re: New TT + FALCON/ST PC-like case.

mrbombermillzy makes a good point. I also do like the TT/MSTE case as is. But re-casing ST/F030 makes some sense to me.
But i have no idea what would be a good design. The keyboard seems to be the issue with me. 2 cases? CPU & Keyboard? Then we are back to TT/MSTE case for ST/F030?

Re: New TT + FALCON/ST PC-like case.

Suggestion for back plane to help keep costs down. On the inside of the back plane, have molded stencils of the holes for TT or MSTE with a center divot. We can drill the holes we need ourselves. The correct drill bit sizes could be molded in, as well as the model (TT, MSTE) that hole would be for. ...

I pulled out a 520st with a 1MB upgrade, but there are parts soldered to the Shifter area I am not sure about. It might be parts of the mem upgrade. This is just outside my wheelhouse of knowledge.

This person already emailed me back. They use Nichicon Capacitors. Are these good? and they use 20% grater values than are on the caps being replaced. Is that good for our ST's?

Re: Screws!

Be careful of the screws at the front of the case. If they are just a bit to long, you will get a bump on the top of the case, as the screw pushes up on the case plastic. Worse they might pop through. I use 3/8" screws for the front.

Re: FS: Capacitor replacement kits for Falcon030 motherboard and PSU.

What would be a fair price to have someone do the motherboard recap for you? I am NOT offering to do it. I would probably kill the board!
But just in general, what would be a fair price for such a service?

Re: SD vs. CF memory cards for IDE interface

One thing I have noticed is that all the current SD adapters have the SD slot oriented 90' to the pins. So it can not be easily made to have the SD card removable from the back of the case. Also, for Falcon's, there is the 44 to 40 pin issue. Yes there are adapters, but then you have to split the 5V...
