    Default Kasmin card

    Allright, as some of you already know i got lucky in obtaining this beauty from dibs. http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?t=5222
    Now, this card needs some careful work to be done. But since it appears that your daily (or nightly should i say) thirst for hw prOn is not yet quenched, i figured i'd present the item...
    Well, here she is, in all her green glory!



    The card arrived in the box you see, which was inside a parcel, which was inside another parcel, which was inside a poly cover, which was surrounded by other cardboard boxes, and the whole thing inside a much bigger box!
    That goes to say that dibs has done a great job to protect it.
    So, here's the "enemy" i have to face:

    That's at the front, just above the RAM chips, probably nothing to worry about, but seems to require a continuity test here and there, and some cleanup.


    And here's the big part.




    And a closer shot of the traces. I only wish i could resize them pics here, but the resizing tool doesn't seem to listen....




    Well, that's all for now. Once the repairs are finished i'll explain what i intend to try using this card for... Stay tuned!!

    @ salaxi54

    Looks like a job for the old 30AWG wire.. it shouldn't be too difficult to isolate the damaged areas and bypass them.

    That looks like fun - it might be worth just jumping wires from points rather than replacing those tracks in situ, as they look quite close together and single strands of wire are rather challenging to hold in place - especially when they're close to each other.

    @ salaxi54

    That's the stuff!! Kynar wire iz teh r0xx0rz!!

    @ Chiark

    I know what you mean, Kynar wire can be quite springy; Sellotape or Blu-Tak is quite good at holding the main length of wire still until you can tack the soldered ends in place. A dab of hot glue finishes the job off and ensures that the wire doesn't break free.

    LMAO!!!!


    If i may I use a slightly different method, thats more inkeeping with restoration.

    I would use a fine abrasive rubber / cloth and pull back the laqure over the tracks...

    I would then clean the area and TIN the tracks...

    Using bare 30AWG that (has no protecive sheath) I would tack one end, hold it down with a small set of tweezers and then solder the other end to the track.

    Once thats done I would hold the oposite side down and run the iron over the other end to confirm its position.

    and as they say rinse and repeat =D

    there are many uses for blue tack, but I dont find these in soldering lol.
