Very nice restoration Brent. That must have taken some time.  :notworthy:

Now we have the Restoration section, I think it's time to have an award for the best restorations. Like the Mamey, we need a "Restey" (although that sounds very silly).

I nominate Brent's PP. That Power Brick alone should justify it ! Totally amazing !

I hate the Atari power supply in my Pole Position.  Is there any way to convert it to a switch?

Because it isn't as pretty as BR's ?

Every Atari Power Supply I've seen so far was actually working fine even before the rebuild.
It's not a piece of poo. Maybe the one you have is....

The problem is you'd need a range of "unusual" voltages that modern switchers simply don't supply.

LOL Big A!  You originally told me about this.  Well, now that I have 3 laying around from Dean, (power switches) maybe you could enlighten us all.

PS-  I hope you burned the check!  :laugh2: :dizzy:

I can't upload it here.  It exceeds the maximum files size allowed.  I've linked to the file.  I presume it's okay to post this as it was freely available to download from StarTech Journal's website once upon a time.
