  • does any body need old 5 bords for chassis

    Hey does anybody need any boards that orginally
    went into the elco chassis if so I have have 16 lanes worth they are sitting on a shelf in my shop and I know some poor desperate mechanic somewhere has to be hunting them.They still worked when I pulled and replaced them with Omega Tek logic and expander cards so if anybodys interested I have em I hate to just scrape em I know they can be of some use to somebody...Email me or private message me thanks Kevin..........

    We have a mess of them as well... about 30 lanes worth + spares. I think they're still back in the storeroom somewhere.

        so i guess that means there is a surpluss because i have 24 lanes worth of cards that I dont know what to do with either!

            Off the subject, I have to convert some old five board chassis to Omega Tech boards. What all is involved in this process?

              Piece of cake [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] If you are just using the MK-70 without the expander, you just pull the 5 boards out, chuck 'em, and plug the "jumper board" into the PC-3 slot, the MK-70 in the PC-4 slot &amp; the other board Input board - connected via wire to MK-70)into the PC-5 slot. You are done! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img] If you are going to use the expander with scoring, basically the same set up with the addition of a cable that is wired into the C1 socket &amp; to the Sweep contactor. It is all explained in the manual(s). The expander basically makes your S/S chassis a MP chassis (short sweep cycle, sweep reverse, etc).IT IS WORT THE $$$!

                Jon nailed it! It's that easy!!

                While you're there you might as well remove the aux. board. The MK-70 doesn't use it but it is still in the circuit &amp; can cause problems if it malfunctions. Just clip those 5 wires where they connect to the mother board.

                  Later on, when you get bored or finally go nuts, you can also remove the three CP capacitors and the spider triac/heat sink. Not used, still in circuit (exc triac), but can cause trouble (rare).
                  Sure cleans up the chassis real nice. I also remove the plate near the relays that supports the board slot plates. More room to get your hand in there to replace the relays.

                  BTW: I have 40+ sets, and know of at least 100 others nearby.
                  May be good for apprentices for soldering practice.
                  Can anyone think of some other uses for the boards?

                              They make great frisbees - especially the 4 board (cos it's more aerodynamic I suppose ;-).

                              BTW, how many of you removed the Aux board while you still had the 5 boards in use? We did - they only caused trouble (and they weren't even that good for frisbees).
