      Hi,

      I was wondering if anyone might know where I can get the logo artwork
      reproduced for the front on my Altair 680. This was an original computer
      my late brother bought as a kit back in the 70's. I helped him build
      this and we sure had some fun programming this. I'm finally getting
      around to restoring this. I dug it out from the last trip visiting them.
      All my stuff was stored in their garage since we moved. The logo
      silkscreen has faded away alot there's nothing left that resembles a
      logo. I was hoping there is some way to restore this, either by
      replacing the front panel or getting this repainted(or silkscreened). In
      the meantime, I can get the hardware cleaned up and hopefully get this
      to run again.

      thanks,
      =Dan

        Hi,

        I saw from an earlier post on here about using PhotoEZ to silkscreen
        front panels. That looks so great to use and easy to handle. I'm going
        to get some of this to restore my other machines too. But now I have to
        find somebody who has scanned a good version of the front panel for an
        Altair 680. I hope someone who has an Altair 680 could offer this.

        thanks,
        Dan

                The blue "ALTAIR 680" lettering (see Tom's scans) seems to be one of
                the many variations of the "Peignot" typeface. I once bought a few
                sheets of Peignot rub-on letters that were a perfect match (I can't
                remember the manufacturer) from an art supply store.

                In another variation of the 680 front panel, the lettering was white
                instead of blue.

                          General hints for using PhotoEZ:


                          Don't bother buying the clear plasric "frame" they sell
                          on the website. What you want is a nice piece of window
                          glass. The basic idea here is to hold the printed template
                          directly against the sheet of PhotoEZ while it is being
                          exposed. If ANY space is between the template and the
                          PhotoEZ, light will creep in behind and ruin the exposure.

                          Don't bother hunting for clear acetate to print your template
                          on. When printing using a laser or inkjet onto those
                          clear overhead slide sheets, the printing rarely comes out
                          completely opaque - more of a gray - and that lets too
                          much light through. Instead, just use cheap white printer
                          paper and print onto that - it will be darker and will
                          work better anyway.

                          The printed page go printed-side down facing the PhotoEZ
                          during exposure. DO NOT FORGET to remove the frosted
                          protective sheet from the PhotoEZ just before you expose
                          it. Under the frsoted sheet it is green and shiny and that
                          is the surface you place your printed page on, printing
                          side down.

                          The PhotoEZ should sit on something black while being
                          exposed, like a piece of black plastic or black cloth.
                          The stack will be in this order:

                          BRIGHT SUN
                          |
                          glass sheet
                          facedown printed page
                          PhotoEZ shiny green side up
                          Black surface


                          Do whatever is needed to hold the sheet of glass on the
                          page and the PhotoEZ immobile while it is being exposed.
                          I exposed mine for exactly 4 minutes in bright sunlight
                          and that was just about perfect. I actually taped my stack
                          together.

                          Once you have the stack assembled, cover it with something
                          opaque and take it outside an put it facing the sun. Have
                          a watch or clock with you with a sweep second hand. Uncover
                          to bright sunlight for 4 minutes - any longer and light will
                          start to creep under the edges of your printing. Recover
                          and take back inside.

                          When developing it in water, use water that is not too cold
                          and not too hot. Too hot water will dissolve ALL the
                          PhotoEZ, as I found out the hard way. They tell you to
                          develop for 10 minutes, and that's about right, but use
                          a soft artists paintbrush and lightly start to brush the
                          exposed areas after about 4 minutes (the exposed areas
                          will appear as a lighter green). After about 5 or 6
                          minutes you will start to see areas that are completely
                          clear of photoEZ. After all areas look clear, hold the
                          new stencil up to the light to find areas that still need
                          a bit of brushing - repeat until you have a good stencil.

                          Lay out your stencil on some paper towels to dry - shiny
                          side up (same side that was exposed) and DO NOT touch the
                          shiny side - it is very sticky and easily damaged. After
                          10 minutes of initial drying, I placed the stencil on a
                          clean flat surface (shiny side up again) and carefully
                          taped just the corners to the surface to hold it straight,
                          and then placed the stencil back in the sunlight to
                          complete drying and to harden it up. This took about
                          30 - 45 minutes. After that, the stencil is ready to
                          use.

                          When using the stencil, try and work in small areas at
                          one time and try and achieve close contact between the
                          stencil and the surface to be painted. The shiny side
                          goes against the surface to be painted. If using
                          spray paint, be sure to mask off other parts of the
                          stencil as well a parts of the surface not being painted.
                          I've had good results using Krylon spray paint, but
                          you can also use paints front tubes and apply using a
                          squeegee (I haven't tried this). After applying paint,
                          wait for a few minutes for initial drying, carefully
                          remove the stencil and clean the stencil in paint
                          remover and allow the area just painted to thoroughly
                          dry before doing the next area.

                          Anyway, those are my hints and tips from using this
                          stuff before. I'll be restoring my old 8800 front
                          panel this week and will post some before and
                          after pics.
