Yes, I agree Ian. I've got everything I need for joining them together.
My chief interest in this hobby is the historical aspect and a stand-alone
poly (although they can be used that way) is not how they were used back in
I think the problem with the second one is just old capacitors. Just a
matter of identifying and replacing. A good project for sometime next
year. This year has been a busy one with many (non-computing) projects. I
hope to get more time for THIS hobby next year.
