  • For Sale 2x Short ST's both fully serviced, upgraded to 4MB & socketed CPU's

    Hi guys,

    I fixed/serviced a couple of short ST's (the original before floppy drive/psu was enclosed) and am selling them.

    * Both include original PSU re-capped with top-spec Panasonic caps (they are both UK 240v)
    * Both are in good cosmetic condition with only a little yellowing
    * Both have been upgraded to 4MB of ST-RAM (agranlund design) So none of that dodgy marpet plug rubbish, solid and reliable soldered directly into the motherboard.
    * System B had both it's PLC sockets replaced with brand new 'funky' adaptors from Exxos store, as the originals were faulty.
    * Both system A & B have had it's line driver chips socketed & replaced
    * Both systems have been re-capped
    * On both machines many of the sockets have been replaced with new double leaf sockets for reliability
    * Both systems have socketed CPU and Shifter - to make it easy for a user to make future upgrades (Cloudy/Stormy/Rainy usb/ide/altram? Pi-RGB? Maybe Pi-Storm if it gets Atari support? Etc you get the idea!)
    * Keyboards fully working nice and clean
    * Both systems have original TOS
    * Both systems fully tested for stability
    * Both systems fitted with full shielding (not pictured)
    * Note: These revision B models of ST do not provide 12v on the monitor output, making some VGA adaptors incompatible. I have succesfully used the STVGA from centuriontech and is the only adaptor I can guarantee to work.

    Payment accepted either by bank transfer, or paypal friends & family.

    Even though there are literally weeks of work I put into these units, I'll only ask a low special price of £150 each <Snip>

    Please message in this forum thread to declare interest, as in: 'Declaring interest in System X' and I will PM you.

    note: If you are international I do not accept any responsibility for the current state of international postage, the last item I posted to Germany took 3 months even though I paid for priority 3 day shipping.

    Thank you, photos:

    For anyone who doesn't know! You can get an external floppy adaptor from 5voltsupply! Then you can either plug in a real drive or a Gotek etc:
