Re: ZXmore - questions and answers (FAQ)

Hi, Im getting the parts together for my ZX More. One chip I cant seem to get is a 74HCT85

Farnell dont stock them. eBay sellers want around 4.50 for one. What is the chip used for and can anyone advise where I can get one at a sensible price?

Re: ZX81 case screws

They are called plastite screws. I think they are 3 x 12 mm. Got a pile of them from the scrap bin at work. I'll try them tonight and post if they work or not.

Re: ZX81 case screws

Thanks for the link. While I like Sell My Retro, 6.49 inc post for 7 tiny screws is crazy.

ZX81 case screws

Every time I open a ZX81 I lose 1 or 2 screws. Can anyone tell me what type/size of screws to buy?

Thanks
