Vince Briel’s Replica 1 workshop

Posted Mon, Feb. 2nd 2009 in News

Vince Briel, the creator of the Replica 1, an Apple-1 clone, has volunteered to run a workshop at KansasFest 2009 to help attendees build their Replica 1 kit.

To offer this workshop, there needs to be enough people interested in signing up. The cost would be $149 and includes the kit, meaning you would leave KansasFest with your own working Apple-1 clone.  This price is the normal retail value of an unassembled Replica 1 kit, and the workshop, included in your KansasFest registration, would take 2-3 hours on the morning of Saturday, July 25th. You would need to bring an inexpensive soldering iron (or we could have some extras on hand).

Vince has offered this workshop at other events, such as the Vintage Computer Festival East last September. He is a patient and skilled teacher who makes assembling an Apple-1 clone easy for soldering veterans and newbies alike.

If you would be interested in having Vince attend KansasFest to offer this opportunity, please let us know!
