Look what's just arrived, my latest acquisition, a Commodore PET 2001-8.
PET microSD disk drive to load it, I need BASIC 2 or BASIC 4. But first I will need to fix the IEEE-488 port, as that doesn't appear to be working.
Update:The pins fitted to the current stock of boards suit all socket types, so the long pins are no longer required.
2022 Update: The LCD project never happened as I wasn't able to get a reliable supply of good LCDs. But the principles used in it led to the development of the Mini PET.
The redesigned small version of the PET ROM/RAM boards are still available from TFW8b.com
