Happy 2019 Everyone!

So I’m off to a good start in 2019. I’ve finished most of the December backlog and got most of that returned to customers. More jobs on the way should mean its going to be a busy month again. What can I show so far? Well here’s another RGB modded PAL n64, and a fully recapped and RGB modded DUO.

What else is new? Well I got a few cool presents for Christmas.

First I got the Neo Geo Mine arcade machine. Its actually very fun to play and the little screen is very sharp.

Secondly we now have a 3D printer! This is amazing and I’m already thinking of lots of uses for it. No doubt I’ll need it for future projects.

just for fun I’m making a model Tie Fighter I found on thiniverse.

Christmas Shutdown

Shutting down work over December

I’m planning to keep most of December free to spend time with family. Its been a very busy year and I feel satisfied with all the repairs and upgrades I’ve got done for people in the last 11 months.

Finishing up the current consoles I’ve already started is the plan, then time to relax 🙂

Please feel free to email if you need help, or want work quotes for next year.

Happy retro gaming over your Christmas break!

Overloaded

Until further notice I cannot accept any more console repair or re-cap jobs, with the exception of UniBios installs.

I’m currently at full capacity for booked in jobs, and instead of telling people to expect a 2 month+ wait time to get their console back, I’ve decided to temporally stop accepting booking for now.

This will not affect requests for official UniBios installations.

I’m delighted that I’ve been getting so many repair request, and I’m always happy to help people with their consoles, but for now I need to concentrate on clearing the backlog.

Thanks for your understanding. If you still need to contact me for help, advice or recommendations on your consoles or projects, please do so.

First update of 2018

My first update of the year and already almost 1 month in. This month I have been busy working tough a few commission repair jobs.

I just wanted to share some photos of another NEC Turbo DUO I saved from certain death (or something like that). The capacitors always go bad on these machines and often damage the audio and power systems. Luckily this machine was fixed in time before any damage was done.

I also installed an RGB amplifier to replace an old direct RGB link to a wired-in scart cable.

Next console to show off is a nice early serial PAL Neo-Geo AES v3-3. This unit needed a fix to the power connection, 50hz jumper removing to get everything playing in 60hz and Unibios installing. I also installed a red LED in the reset button. Now you can see when the console is switched on!

Please note. I’ll be super busy through February, and may not be able to start any more repair jobs. I’ll still be contactable on email if you want to contact me.

Right tools for the job

Finally got round to ordering a replacement soldering station. This time I got a proper rework station complete with desoldering gun. My old kit was getting a bit warn out. This should save me loads of time when working on console repairs and replacing through hole caps.

It’s like a new toy at Christmas.
