Some ZX spectrum 16/48/+ circuit boards spares and repairs to raid for bits
Couple of ZX spectrum + cases.

ZX microdrive bought spares and repairs, works fine once I made a cable to connect it to the IF1.

Tandy Multicart interface, allos the connection of multiple carts to the CoCo, should also work on the Dragon.

Cheers.

Phill.

Indeed, this is the one : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120939985008

Apparently they where quite a popular addon for the Coco in the US, but that's the first time I have seen one in the UK.

Cheers.

And even if it isn't, fault diagnosis of spectrums is quite easy, and well documented, most common fault seems to be one 9or more) of the 4116 RAM chips and TR4 + TR5.

Not forgetting the odd dead Z80 - all of which can be fixed at RCM HQ (we have a few spares)

Decent trip to a car boot sale today - a Playstation 2 (£15 in good nick - couldn't be bothered to haggle for that kind of money), cassette recorder (£2) and possibly a great find (haven't tested it yet), a Sinclair 16K ZX RAM expansion which i got for 50p.
