So it was the PSU that smoked?
I'm just about to plug in the Duodrive again for another try.
Soldering is quite far beyond me – I've played about with socketed chips, ribbon cables etc, but that's about it.
Monitors terrify me – CRTs hold volatge in their capacitors, don' t they?

Before I pull-apart the power supply,
- Do the blocks plug in or solder in?
- Is this exactly the same for the monitor?
(And does the CRT monitor have to "rest" before I go touching the insides to avoid electric shock?
