After a two year pause due to my wife having been ill but now fully
recovered I am back to starting making pdp-8 front panels again
I have some stock:
pdp-8/e (type A - vertical selector switch start mark)
pdp-8/e (type B - selector switch start to left of vertical)
As pdp8/f but no /f marking. - doing a /m overprint for it
I am looking for scrap pdp/8 panels (might trade for a new one), hi res
front (and back) dead center pictures (panel on its own) and accurate
dimensions (including holes) of any pdp-8 panel to aid me in offering
the complete range.
PDP-11 ? Not at this time but maybe later
I am busy at the moment with artwork redrawing.
The UK winter is not kind to making screens.
Even in good warm weather the exposed and washed out screen in its frame
takes 24 hours to dry.
Then after printing each layer (up to five per panel) takes 24hrs to dry
before another layer can be added.
Authentic panels produced the exact way they were in the '60s and '70s
ain't going to be quick or cheap.
But the result is sure worth it.
