It looks like it to me - from the schematic, he's using old National
chips (8838, etc)... not a bad trick for a one-off, but not so easy to
manage for, say, an new community design. Personally, I collect all
of the NS 8xxx chips I come across (a handful per year), more to
repair old boards than anything else, but someday, if an interesting
design crossed my path, I'd have parts to build one.
