Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Bought a Casio Palmtronic LD-81 calculator at a flea market today. Works great and its in great condition.

In case you dont know the specifics, its an old calculator with the early 70's type VDF round tube display.

EDIT: Lets get one thing straight, they hadn't mastered the fine art of soldering back in 1975. Took it apart for cleaning. All the wires from the battery to pcb came off. And i was wearing my fragile object hand at the time. Bugger all, bring it on!
