Look great. Socket hole is a little too short and needs to be filed down. Not bad though.

      2 IN-12s or IV22 (? the VFD version) on the carrier. These are the super cheap, plentiful tubes. I don’t like the plain #s, but I have a ton of rarer symbol tubes with different stuff in them :) Goal is to jam as many tube types into one assembly so I actually enjoy them instead of having a box under the bed :)

    I’ll look forward those, good job guys, those old tube are a pain to work with IMO

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
