RE: [Friends of DigiComp] Re: Slow cutting
- View SourceBill,
Could I get a copy of your book? I got my version and have assembled it
(very carefully I might add) and am ready to go! I had one of the original
Digicomp I units when I was a kid but it got damaged. I never got another
one or a II but I sure enjoyed the I.

on-Toys, ~$50. But if you are determined to make your own, I suggest
geting/using a Dremel tool to shape the internal spaces on the clock
planes and support plates. They should be shaped exactly.
By the way, when you have a working model, I have written a book of
new programs to supplement the original work.
