Sad news today…..
Over the last few weeks I’ve been putting the finishing touches on several small projects that have been sitting on the sidelines. I plan to have these projects up for sale by Cyber Monday. One project was started over two years ago, but I kept stalling out on it, or my time got switched to […]
I believe I nearly have the finished .stl files. I’m doing a final fit print now and into tomorrow morning. There will be two files, two parts, a bottom and a lid. It may not be the best solution, but I dare say a better one than in the buff as it is now. 🙂 […]
Progress on the 3d files. First preliminary fit printing went well. Found some obvious errors in dimensions. Fixed them. Now I am ready to do a secondary fit printing. But…… the original filament cartridge that came with the printer is about out. I have 3rd party filament, so the next adventure is going to be […]
Today is a mismash of things. I partnered with mytekcontrols to bring to simi-mass market his creation TK-II Stereo Bundle. Essentially it is a PS/2 keyboard/Atari 8bit interface with the added feature of a stereo Pokey feature.

I was on my workbench when a minor tremor began. I thought at first that my cat had headbutted my leg. He’s prone to do that when I’m ignoring […]
Well another summer has come and almost gone. Just have to get through the dog days of August. 🙂 Today I get to announce new hardware for sale. It’s literally amazing what the Atari 8bit computer was able to do some thirty years ago. And the ability of some genius engineers to pull the most […]
I grew up listening to this man. I know it’s not hip anymore, and it was a different era then, but there are days now I turn off the tv and radio and fire up my old record changer and crank the volume up. Ole Possum, Buck and his buckaroos, Whispering Bill, the Man in […]
New Atari 8bit development pcb tool is available. Some might find a use. Others may think it is useless. I’ll be adding additional development pcbs in the near future so stay tuned.
Post four in the continuing saga of the new 3d Printer. So far I’ve fixed a misaligned Y axis, discovered how to level the print bed, how to use the slicing software that came with the printer to get the gcode to the printer and printed a few objects of increasing complexity and print time […]
