When I Get A Round Tuit . . .


Some of the accumulation of old PCs I might get around to fixing one day.

Over the last 5 years I've repaired and sold ~120 old PCs I'd collected
over the last 25 years, but I've kind of lost my motivation to continue.

I think there are about 120 left to do.

On the upside, my kids have the local dumpster supplier on speed dial.


They've taken over the garage . . .

There are 4 rows of shelving with PCs, but only the top 2 are visible on the left wall.

I've really got no idea what's hiding on the two bottom shelves on the left wall - most
likely old stuff I collected well over 25 years ago now, so probably 286's and 386's.

The Acorn and MACs work, not sure about the 286.

g08

Caps in all the compact MACs have carked it.

g09

The Amstrad PCW was working OK when last checked - the CPC 6128 has a PSU issue (maybe caps).

Another glimpse of shelf #2, looks like a group of 286's.

g13

A box of old PC keyboards including a few early IBMs.

g14

The Acorn works, I just never got around to putting the cover back on.

g15

Most of the boxes on the table are floppy disks, including 8".

g16

More old white CRTs - the boxes these are on and others near them are full of car sales brochures, mostly AU models.

g17

100 or so small IDE drives.

g18

Shelf #3, probably 386 & 486

g19

A peek at shelf #2

g20

A box of MAC keyboards and mice.

g21

Another glimpse of the top of shelf 2

g22

PC stuff still boxed from a previous move

g23

g24

Mainly boxes of floppy disks on this table, including 8" new and used

g25

g26

g27

Some leftovers from the motoring magazines pile - thought I got rid of all these.

g28

Misc cards etc.

g29

A 286 case with a 386 M/B sitting on top of another 286 (cases behind), both working

g30

Dabbled in bookbinding, so there are 40 (or 50+) sets of brass and lead type plus accroutements and finishing tools.

g31

The workspace in the garage - most boxes under the shelf are full of car sales brochures.

g32


And there's quite a lot of PC spare parts in the house - although slightly more organised..
