OPTION FOR DO IT YOURSELF METAL CHASSIS FOR PASTIME PROJECTS 6V6 MC KIT

February 15, 2021

THE 6V6 MC KIT WHICH PASTIME PROJECTS MANUFACTURES AND SELLS OUT OF OHIO USA USES A METAL CHASSIS. RECENTLY AN AMATEUR OPERATOR ORDERED A KIT WITHOUT THE METAL CHASSIS. THIS SAVED THE COST OF THE ALUMINUM CHASSIS. IT ALSO SAVED THE LABOR (MACHINE SHOP) FOR ALL OF THE METAL DRILLING, THE HARDWARE FOR MOUNTING THE BOTTOM PLATE, THE SPECIAL BOTTOM PLATE, AND SO ON.

THAT’S A LOT OF MONEY! WE HAVE ADDED A PRICE OPTION FOR THE 6V6MC KIT – WITHOUT CHASSIS – TO OUR WEB SITE – http://www.pastimeprojects.com – FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE IN ORDERING. AS, ALWAYS THE PAYPAL OPTION IS RIGHT THERE FOR YOUR USE. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT! IF YOU ARE “OLD SCHOOL” AND USED TO BUILD RADIOS ON MOM’S PIE PANS, THIS MAY BE YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO GET OUT THE OLD DRILL AND HAVE SOME FUN. BEST REGARDS – GLENN B FOR PASTIME PROJECTS.

Pastime Projects – Special Sales – Keyboard Keyers

February 3, 2021

On our website https://pastimeprojects.com we have a page for used equipment which can be reached by using the “buttons” a the top of the home (index) page. It is called “Special Sales”. We have a lot of used equipment to list. We will try to describe it as honestly and accurately as possible.

Today we are listing (2) used MFJ – 451 Keyboard Keyers with manual. These send messages through ham radio stations by converting typed letters to Morse code and sending its output to radio transmitters. We looked up on the internet and saw one recently sold for $67.00 . We also have a Zenith ZKB-3 163-86 (an IBM -AT Compatible keyboard) which we purchased to try with the Keyers. (Being advertised on the internet for $170.00)

We tested these units with the keyboard and had good results. More photos and description will be added to the “Special Sales” as time allows. We are not expert at solid state devices, computers, keyboards, and therefore cannot fully test these items. We will guarantee you will get an honest evaluation before you buy.

If this is the kind of thing you like to play with, please make us an offer directly to our email address. No offer will be binding until you and I agree on all transactions.

Regards – Glenn Brown for Pastime Projects.
