Once assembled it worked 1st time. Very happy with the product. One item is not included in this pack which is the power supply pins. I unsoldered from my old board to install on this board

The kit arrived quickly and was well packaged. Requires skill for assembly with great attention to detail, particularly with regard to chip installation (would recommend using sockets* for the chips - not supplied, but next to nothing on eBay - with sockets there is no danger of overheating pins directly on the chips!) Also a soldering iron with a fine tip is required. It's a joy to see a machine built in the 1980's given a new lease of life selecting needles across the whole bed! Thank you redpinkgreen - great piece of kit! (NB. if using an external power supply take special note of the polarity! A PSU with negative centre pin is required) (* 18 pin DIP x4 required - care needs to be taken on insertion to make sure all pins align before pushing home as the pis are delicate!)

Thank you so much for your patience and help. I had never soldered before, knew nothing of electronics. Your wonderful help was so awesome and now I'm up and knitting again! Yay!!

Fast shipping, once it shipped I received it in 1 week! First time soldering so the first try wasn't great but I am sure I will get it next time when I get more soldering tips in. I am excited to get this working!
