For sale or swap

  • IBM Thinkpad floppy drive. Taken from an IBM Thinkpad T20. FRU P/N 05K9206.
  • Western Digital MyBook Pro 500GB. This thing tends to give me I/O errors after it's been mounted for a few days, but it's about a 50/50 chance that's down to my PC's crappy USB handling than the drive. It's got a USB2.0 and Firewire interface, so if nothing else you could use it as a smart new drive enclosure.
  • Brand new Acer keyboard and mouse. Came with my Acer Aspire Revo, but I'm using it as a headless server. Both are white, and still in their packaging. The mouse is optical and has a scrollwheel; the keyboard has that flat-button style that Apple keyboards have these days. It's a little smaller than standard, but not as small as a laptop keyboard. Both are USB devices.
  • Electric guitar. This thing's an undeniable clunker. The action is pretty shit, the electronics could do with a soldering iron to make the connections less dodgy, and the paint job is nasty. It is a body someone rescued from a skip and bolted a new neck to. But! If you wanted a cheap way to try out the guitar, or smash one up without spending too much, or try being a luthier, or just leave it lying around the house to impress girls – this is the guitar for you.


  • 3.5" internal floppy drive.
  • VGA cable.

I've donated a mountain bike to the workshop (it's in there with a sign on). Please feel free to take, use, cannibalise and hack it to bits. It's got two flat tyres and a loose/damaged left pedal crank, but otherwise isn't a total wreck, so I hope it's of use to someone. Taken

Looking for an **OLD** electric frypan, griddle or whatever - to cook SMD boards.

I have a new pristine one, that I am reluctant to use because it will get poisoned with lead.

Rob Kam

Give away (or swap if there's anything you think might be interest):

  • Yamaha Portasound PSS-470, works, just needs a wall wart. OPL3 type sounds. Child size keys. Not MIDI.
  • MK61 MIDI keyboard controller, untested, needs +5v via a DA-15/PC gameport type connector. Full size keys.
  • JVC KB600, and service manual. No generic ICs or I'd have kept it. Three keys are a bit smashed. It can be played but I couldn't get a sound out of it when it was plugged in to an external MIDI keyboard. Mains powered.
  • HP LaserJet 4050n printer, with duplex unit. This is a decent old style B&W office printer but a plastic paper stop in the paper tray will need need fixing, it doesn't fix in place. It still prints if fiddled with everytime you load paper. Cumbersome and heavy. Parallel port connection, no network card.
