  1. Then there is this set that look a little better. https://www.amazon.com/Bakelite-Handle-Female-Thread-Insert/dp/B08837SRT6/ref=pd_sbs_4?pd_rd_w=DrQUB&pf_rd_p=5e0f7f8d-f321-4a3e-bdac-3142fcd848d7&pf_rd_r=5AFEVE5ANEDD31BVSEWX&pd_rd_r=465e692b-6c77-4f9b-8945-aa1c6f8d1e9e&pd_rd_wg=Ca5DX&pd_rd_i=B088326T3G&th=1
  2. SWEET!!!!! Thank you so much!! I ordered these a few days ago, and they were supposed to be here today, but now it says tomomorrow. No biggie as I still have work to do on the cabinet. Not the best looking set in the world, but the price is right. 10 for $7.39. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071GZ4BF5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. I am working on a project where I am adding a Taito Space Invaders CPO, Joystick and fire button to the front of a control panel. as I played a LOT of it as a kid. I know the ball was very small. Do you happen to know what size it was? 30 seems to be the smallest I can find anywhere, but that is only 5mm less than the standard 35, and I want to say it was smaller. Any idea?? ALso, and idea on where I can find the ball top?

    2XL emulator

    Anyone remember 2-XL from when you were a kid. Two versions exist. The original was an 8-track tape player, and the newer one was a modified cassette. Wellllllllllllll both versions along with every tape ever released have been emulated for you to enjoy. https://www.2xlbot.com/. Sadly, this is an online only emulator. It would be nice if there was a way to emulate it on your own devices incase when/if this page ever goes down.
  5. Hey!! My Buckeye brothers!!! O-H!!! From the burbs of Cleveland!!!
  6. Love my BLW. Installed it, never had a problem since. Well worth the money.
  7. I have no problem running Missile Command when I disable the keyboard. Works great.
  8. Fred, You do not need to apologize. You have worked your can off on these things, and II am sure I speak for the rest of the community when I say thank you.
  9. OK, dumb question..... I will be getting a donor Pokey chip from a fryed 800XL over the weekend. I know there is a screw holding the concerto together. What is the process for opening the shell? I assume there is some kind of trigger in the slot close to the screw? Just do not want to damage it after waiting years to get it. TIA.
  10. Got it in mail yesterday. Worked till 1030PM, so Did not get to try it till this morning. Took forever to find the RF plug. Wrote the SD Card. No dice. Tried another SD Card and struck gold! This thing ROCKS!! Version .92 firmware!! Thank you Fred!! Merry Christmas!!
  11. After 10-11 years of dreaming, mine is out for delivery today!!! Suprisingly with the mail being so slow, it got from Oregon to Ohio a LOT quicker than I anticipated, even without the slow down. Merry Christmas!! Thank you Fred!! Merry Christmas to you and yours!!
  12. I have an 800XL, that died due to an Ingot power supply many years ago. I have been meaning to schedule surgery for it, but have not had the time. I am assuming the pokey chip in the XL series is the same # of pins, and configuration as the concerto? If so, I will just use it until Fred's replacement chips are available, and then put it in the Concerto and the real one back in the 800XL.
  13. I had one of those back in the day. It was pretty cool.
