Hi all!

As title says, i have literally tons of SIMMS modules of all kind/MB

I have 1MB, 4MB, 8MB, 16MB, 32MB....and i think thats about 90% of what i currently have

I have promised 2 members of this forum already 2 of this memories, but...if you are looking for something in particular, you can have it just for postage

It would be better if you choose more than 2/3, it costs you the same in shipping and you can have more.

Please, once you say what you need, allow me a couple of days to test them in one of my Amigas, so im 100% sure they work, and that you wont be receiving a useless memory, only good for a nice geek keyring :D

Its not greedy at all Mike. Its better that they find a good usage rather that being sleeping in one of my hardware boxes. And thats the main purpose of this thread ;)

As i said, just gimme a couple of days, to test them properly, and i send you all details via PM, including pics if you need

Cheers
Sebastian

I would be interesting also in 2x32MB modules for my CS MKII if that's possible. Also it would be nice to know the postage to Greece. Thanks m8.

The only ones I'm after are those used in old Macs which resembles like a GVP SIMM (same 64pin, same pitch, totally incompatible).

They are for a special project.

Hi there! Here i am
Well, i have what you, scrappy, harrison, phantom,P G need

Rogerio, i dont understand exactly what you need? 30 pin simm? send me a PM or email and explain me which one you are after specifically. If you can provide me a link and/or picture, it will be perfect.

More important thing: postage. As you may now (at least the ones who have done trades with me), Argentinian Post Service is not the cheapest in the world.

I have found that if i send 4, 5 or 10 simms, they will cost exactly the same that if i send 1 stick

So, we are talking around 10/15 euros per package. Package is a smal envelope filled with bubble wraps, and antistatic bags for the memos

If you guys agree with postage, please send me a PM with the exact amount needed, i will make a list, and i will begin sending the packages not next week, since im overloaded by totally unexpected (but very needed) work to do, and i will not have pshysical time to go to Local Post Office.
so, if you can wait 8 days, memories are yours.

PM for more details if needed

Thanks!

Sebastian

I'm looking for some odd pieces: 64-pin SIMM. Those was sold in old MacIntosh/Apple computers and are not compatible with GVP SIMM, albeit the very same number of pins and same notch at the same place as GVP ones.

I already have a pair of those which I'm corroding the traces away to make some GVP compatible unit in wire-wrap.

Actually, 90% of them are 72 pins, suitable for any Amiga accelerator (not GVP ones, of course)

I have found at least 50/60 16MB sims, about 10 32MB, 40/50 8MB, 40/50 4MB and about 10 of 1MB so far

I still have to dig in 2 big boxes.
I guess this weekend will be "Testing-Memories-In-Amiga-Day"

What a relief, my girl is going to another city to visit parents
:)

---------- Post added at 12:15 ---------- Previous post was at 12:13 ----------

OH, BTW, forgot to tell this
I have spokne with my "·friend" at Postal Office in my area.
Shes says that it would be possible to send between 4/6 simms in one single small envelope covered with bubble wraps inside, for smallest postage.

so anybody who has shown interest in only 1 or 2 simms will be receiving 4/6 simms as "bonus". and no complains here!! I need to make room!! lol!!!

I will keep everybody interested updated!!!

@All: i think its time to do an update here (im sending also PM all interested.

so far so good,this is what i have:
- 20 simms (32MB), tested and working in a Blizzard 1230/IV.
- 20 simms (16 MB) tested and working in a Blizzard 1230/IV
- 10 simms (8mb) tested and working in a Blizzard 1230/IV
- 6 simms (4MB) tested and working in a Blizzard 1230/IV
- 4 simms (1MB) tested and working in a Blizzard 1230/IV

The 32MB simms are double sided, just in case you want to know. Also the 16MB are double sided in their majority

Many of them are HP, Siemens, IBM or Kingston.

I have managed to see what would be the best way of sending them anywhere in thge World.

For about 12 euros, i can send you between 4 and 6 of this simms, any size you want. Everything is included, you just pay shipping costs, wait around 7/10 days, and you will have fresh simms for your miggys.

Of course i will respect first came, first served order, and would like people interested, to contact me on PM to make final arrangements.

I still have to test around 200 simms, which i will be doing during the next week for sure

Any more questions, feel free to ask

Thanks
Sebastian

I made a mistake on my original request. I'm actually looking for 2x 32MB 72pin SIMMs and 4x 1MB 30pin SIMMs. So if you have, or manage to find any 30pin 1MB simms that would be brilliant.

So far so good, you and one guy from Australia asked me for either a 64 and/or 128 MB.

If i find them, i will send you pics, and see if you are ok with that

Allow me please until monday (argentinian time, of course ;)) to check everything

My friend: i have managed to find 10 1MB 30 pin SIMMS.

I have no way of testing them (where could i do that?), but the guy who sold me that stuff promises that "all is working"

I can send you all , no problem, but i cant test them until you tell me how/where

Let me know

Sebastian
