So does anyone have a spare board from when they ordered from the pcb production house? I have no problem gathering the parts/building, but I don't actually speak Kicad (a weakness, I know). I'm in the US, and I would be happy to purchase a blank board from someone.

Else, I suppose I have to learn KiCad at some point...

The video is amazing. I never heard before your videos about Rejuvenator, possibly because I never owned an Amiga 1000. Is great learning new interesting stuff about our beloved computers. Thanks techzpod stream free movies

What did you folks buy for the machined pin headers> The BOM states they should be round machined pin headers with an overall length of 16mm, which are super hard to find.

I can't find them anywhere.

I went with standard length round machined-pin headers, and then generic dual wipe sockets inserted into the existing motherboard sockets.

The end result is the Rejuvenator sits a tad higher on the left side, but you don't risk damaging the existing motherboard sockets with larger than expected pins.
