Just a quick note. I do own my own CNC machine, surface grinder, and small engine lathe. So, if someone needs some parts made, just let me know. Maybe we can work something out.
I’m in that trade myself!
You should be! I’m a level III+ tool and die maker! Lol!
I have some knowledge of interfacing a Raspberry Pi GPIO to a CNC machine … maybe we can discuss this? It’s something interesting!
I have several Raspberries shelved mainly to build a few retro computer consoles. I’ve also dabbled with FPGAs to a small extent. I built a retro C65 computer using an FPGA project board. I housed it all in a 64C repopped case. I’m into the old Commodore 64 and 128 computers. I’ve owned several since 1983. I like to refurbish and mod old dead…[Read more]
It’s been a while since I’ve done it, but yes, I used a 40-pin EIDE cable (to prevent pin bending) to a breakout board …
And my retro computer of choice is the TRS-80 Color Computer. I have the 26-3127B, or the Korean made CoCo 2 w/ 64K, Extended BASIC and the updated Motorola 6847T1 VDG (Video Display Generator)… still works.
I use my RPi4…[Read more]
The TRS-80 Color Computers were cool too. A couple of school friends had them.. I just always like the Commodore computers especially because of the 6581 and 8580 SID sound chips. There is still a big following for the C64. There are several small companies in Europe that build new motherboards and cases. Not to mention all the enthusiasts…[Read more]
Motorola MC6809 > MOS 6502. (/opinion)
Well … there is the CoCo3FPGA… https://www.brianholman.com/retrocompute/files/coco3fpga.html
It’s becoming difficult, if not impossible, to find working bare metal CoCo 3’s anywhere anymore. There’s eBay, but finding one is like the lottery. You might get one, but expect to pay a pretty penny. Most of…[Read more]
I my add a 3D printer to my garage machine shop. I do have a CNC, surface grinder, and a small lathe. I will eventually expand. A friend of mine built a 35 x 55 polebarn with radiant floor heating. I will end up there and then we can buy even more machines. I currently work at a machine shop as well. I have over 25 years experience in the trade.
