Re: [midatlanticretro] Cromemco D+7A board wantedWhat is the resistance on the pots? Both Mouser and Digi-Key have suitable pots — not vintage, but workable. I’m guessing 10k, which looks to be pretty common. I remember that Rat Shack had them long ago...need to dig in my boxes.

The tough part of making a Cromemco joystick console repro is finding the
actual joystick module. After a lot of looking, I found that Futaba T5 series
RC model transmitters have joystick modules with the correct pot values and
look about right. I showed my Cromemco loaded IMSAI chassis at VCF East
last year. I think there are some pictures on the web somewhere that show
how my repros turned out. Oh, one other thing, if you find a D+7A without
the edge connector, I have a spare.

Subject: [midatlanticretro] Cromemco D+7A board wanted
After the CP/M workshop, I decided to pull out one of my Dazzler boards to see if it worked. The board I pulled out works (with an old Apple composite monitor) so I’d like to locate a D+7A digital/analog board used for the joystick interface. Does anyone have a spare working board they’d be willing to part with? I also have to see if I have the parts to make the JS joystick console.
I haven’t tried to load-up any of the Dazzler programs yet but I plan on doing that this week and I’ll report back.
