Even More Retro goodness (Repost)

So the Pi1541 arrived and I am amazed how useful it is. It’s not 100% compatible yet, but gets better every week. I LUFF it.
I’ve built the PSU for the 1541 floppy drive and that drive is currently formatting up disks in the background.
The C128D monitor is fixed, but I need to build a stand for it as otherwise I won’t have any desk at all. I also need to replace the failed switch with a working switch I just found.
I’ll need to order parts for the second 1541 PSU and C64 PSU. I’m really tempted to build a “pure” C64 PSU as per Greisis Workshop
After that it’s probably time to rejoin Artifactory, except for the small issue of their laser cutters being out of action AGAIN.
