Mystery dumpster teardown time! With the most amazing mechanical mains power switch you’ll ever see! ...


  1. Dave,

    Would be interested to see if the in circuit programmer works.

    Love your work!! keep it up



  2. Heh, the original version didn’t program the 8Mbit EPROMs either…

  3. Dave,

    Hope you still have it. Please do some 74/54 and 4000 series IC tests with this puppy… Hope it would be a great one for all tech.s and eng.s out there….

  4. After watching this review I bought one!
    For what it’s worth, application of a little snake-oil reveals the MCU is a Microchip PIC18F87J50.
    Seems to do everything it says on the tin…

  5. The only site that I’ve ever used that didn’t get my youtube video removed was youtubeviewseller.

  6. Thanks for the review. In covering the EPROMS and the PIC16F877 you touched on precisely the devices of most interest to me, along with the old GAL devices you listed (but didn’t demo). Great job! I really enjoy listening/watching your reviews.

  7. Nice hardware, nice software, but be sure to check the (limited) device list to make sure your chip is supported. For example, the common flash chip, AMD AM29F004XX (chip id 0x01 0x77) isn’t supported.
