Clearing out the attic

A couple of years ago, before I got embroiled in the madness that is OU study, I rescued a Compukit UK101 off ebay for about £60 and painstakingly found the parts and re-learnt soldering to make it work properly again. I came across it in the attic again a couple of days ago and when I get a few moments, I’m going to see if it still works.

Three photographs of mine (taken after it had been restored) are below:
