I've also got an old Checktronic tape drive if any one is interested. This thing is quite big 480x620x230mm and heavy 30-40 kg but I'd hate to strip it for scrap if there is interest in it. If you are keen let me know and I'll set an auction up.

So much good stuff. Hoping to bid on a machine or two there (I have no room, but I can't help myself).
Popped an ST238R and WD1006 controller in that IPC AT you sold me, running great :)

Good luck with sales, I see that Bondwell already has healthy attention.

Thanks :D I'm just happy these machines are going to homes where people will use and enjoy them. I did think the bondwell might get a bit of interest.

Just added a Sanyo MBC-890 this afternoon. It's a bit of a mystery machine as I can find almost no information about it online. There is some information on later Sanyo MBC machines but all look very much different from the one I've listed. Anyone had any experience with these machines?

Because I'm interested in it (as always) I did some digging. From what I gather, it has the original motherboard installed (even though it looks small in the case) - and it should be an 8088 @ 8Mhz with 640KB RAM. That 20MB NEC is a good model drive too. I think the reason this machine isn't covered on the interwebs very much is because it's your usual Turbo XT clone - a bit different to the unique 550 models.

But I was really posting because IF you were curious, connect a TV to one of the RCA outputs on the video card.
Depending on the switch configuration it may not display anything, but if you're bored, worth a go!
One will be black and white (clear) and the other will be colour (with artifacts)
