5 Commodore Amiga 500's saved from recycling!

Postby Trinitronfan on Mon Oct 26, 2015 9:41 am

A while ago I said to a friend who works in a Ewaste recycling centre to look out for any vintage computers for me and he said he would, he found me 5 Commodore Amiga 500's which did originally come with the monitors and power supplies but has since been scrapped before he found them, at least he managed to save these! I'm on the lookout for any Commodore Amiga 500 power supply, the unit at the very back is a parts unit he found which is only missing the keyboard and the Motorola CPU, I am not sure if it should be a donor for parts or be restored.

Nice work! Glad they dodged the shredder.

Thanks! do you have any spare power supplies for these? I've been looking for one to test, otherwise I suppose I'll just have to order one on TradeMe or wire one up with a regular more modern (20 pin) ATX power supply to test all my Amiga's
