There's no doubt the Apple 1 is an iconic computer. We decided to re-create this classic machine with the help of an unassembled kit. Find out how we got on.
The exceptions to the "install sockets in any position" rule are the two 16-pin sockets: one is specifically for an ASCII keyboard.
I've just started to solder my ASCII socket when I realise I have it in the wrong position. Briel and I are able to remove it but then have to 'punch' the correct socket through the solder left over on the back of the board from my previous soldering job.
After soldering in a 1MHz oscillator, I next install the .1uF and .01uF capacitors in a fashion similar to the resistors.
