We'll see. My Pa was injured and have to make a mid month air trip and decided to just list it. Kind of munged up the auction, I had make offer, and a starting price, but didn't realize the make offer went away after a bid. Didn't want to mess with figuring a BIN price..

Hope your father is OK, my guess is it will go for between $900 to $1000 based on how fast it jumped up. I imagine the real bidding will start in the last half hour of the auction and I am sure it will go for more than I was ready to spend, good luck hope you get a good price.

I liked your TT because it looked so clean but I didn't really need the VME adapter and ET4000 card, I have a Nova adapter and an ATI Mach32 and a Mach64 sitting in my parts closet just waiting for the right computer.

For the Falcon? I see Frank is making more of those. It's a keen setup. Have a Mach 64-4mb for the Afterburner.

I missed out on an offer disappearing after the first bid. Fair offer, and would keep the VME setup for a PAK030 I have in my closet :) Having a hard time sourcing a DIP to PLCC 68k socket adapter for a MSTE setup. TT is packed, now back to the Falcon. Blows, but gotta see Pa :) Not like I'll go without.

I mean I think your TT could go for that, Falcons go for a lot more depending on how much has been done to them.

I have a bare PAK30 board I bought but have not even tried sourcing parts for it yet, not too fond of soldering small parts but I do have a microscope for that.

Curious. Whenever I solder, I put everything in, then use a multimeter to make sure the connections are all good. I would think a microscope would mostly be useful for repairing pcb microcracks, right? (Not an electronics expert by any means)

Your NOVA :) Is it for a Falcon?
Use to be able to solder without magnification....years ago.
Thankful most hardware now drops in, and days of installing components like the Nemesis are long gone.

Ok, was confused about what you were referring to, the vme adapter is for a Mega STE or TT, I have a Mega STE.

Parts are getting so small now I can barely see them, I have a head mounted magnifier but it is not good enough for the really tiny parts.

It depends on what you are soldering, some smt parts are so tiny it is hard to see them let alone solder them to a pcb.
