Default Kit 6550 on FleaBay

Noticed a 6550 on the flea bay, much modded and interesting wiring hookups from the pix. However cheap enough at the mo.
Worth a look if anyone interested

Probably worth it for the Sowters alone. Great project for anyone wanting one

Yes great pity I can not afford it at present ☹️. Just bought other stuff but always wanted one of these.
Could put it back to original and then re do the mods if worth it, should be enough spares there.
Someone is going to get a bargain

I notice it has a DC blocker wired in, has any one else tried this mod?

So it went really cheaply £375 grr should have bid. On the down side a 6 or so hour round trip from Wales so maybe not such a good idea.
Someone got a bargain Iíll just have to wait for another one when Iíve got less to do.
Iíll carry on with the DV when it gets here. In the meantime Iíll get the iron warmed up
