MSDs galore!

Corroded caps and others from 2 drives

With Ray Carlsen repairing the last two MSD SD-2 drives I had, now I have an embarrassment of too many MSDs! The MSD SD-1 on the far left pictured above has JiffyDOS, as does the MSD SD-2 on the far right. The two center SD-2s have the CLD AutoCopy ROMs plus added memory for the convenient copying of disks without the need of Commodore computer.

Commodore P500 revealed

(Photos by Ray Carlsen)

At the July 28-29 CommVEx we exhibited Larry Anderson's Commodore P500, the "Colour PET". Unfortunately, Murphy's Law struck, and the machine would not display anything; its green power LED didn't even come on. On Thursday, August 2, I left the P500 for technician Ray Carlsen to examine and repair. He e-mailed later, writing that the machine worked for him perfectly. He sent me the following pictures. Enjoy!
