Yep.  The project from Bob is very easy to do. All through hole parts.
Mine worked pretty much first time after replacing a dead osc.

I added a 4 GB hard drive from one of my dead laptop computers, and
it looks like ~1600 RK05 packs. Bob's virtualization software for the
hard drive lets you mount any 8 packs at a time. With 1600 of them,
You get to have a lot of scratch packs :-). OS8 runs fine on it.
