Just a FYI for anyone interested - Rob now has the Amstrad CPC boards and component packs ready for sale on Tindie (as shown on Noel's video "
Building the World's Newest Amstrad CPC")

Looks like there are 100 in stock (well 99 now my order is in).

Amazing job! This would resupply the stock of active Amstrad CPC's in the world!  :P
Only problem is where to find the IC's for it, especially the proprietary Amstrad 40010/40007 and the Roms, unless you have a eeprom programmer to burn them yourself. :)

The 40007 and 40010 are custom IC's, not EPROMs, you can't burn or program them.

I don't really see the point of these PCB's it's the part that's least likely to needed in a repair.

It's good to have ENIG expansion ports

As Bryce said. I have seen components falling but motherboards? I don't remember seeing any...

That said it does look nice, if it wasn't in the UK I would think about buying one just for looking at it😀

Don't confuse ENIG with the type of goldplating normally found on edge connectors. It's much thinner and wears off much quicker than proper goldplating. It's better than bare copper because it doesn't oxidise, but it's not as mechanically robust as standard HAL.

You should see one that was donated to me...

That is retro-business only... Nothing interesting here. Better to keep the parts to fix your good old CPC and avoid to seen the prices to continue to increase by entering into this little game.
