I had a great conversation with him the week before ship, and we've been trading emails. He's ordered the caps. We talked about the other machines I'll need serviced once I can get them, which may be as soon as gas prices drop.

Quick update, more to follow when I can get into it. The estimable Mr. Thomas Andrews of Amiga of Rochester
has completed the recaps to my specifications, as well as the fan mod, and my boards have arrived back home. He refuses to charge me for work until I test the boards. (Have shaky hands and need recaps? Contact Thomas.) I am hoping for a sunny day to reassemble because of poor lighting in my hut, and I think it will probably happen tomorrow, forecast partly sunny. Attached are Thomas's images. It only appears he replaced my logic and analog board with brand new ones, but these are OEM (mostly).

Looks very nice. Love those purple top polymer cans.

Is C6 not needed? Or is there a cap there I can't see clearly in the photo?

I saw that in the image, which he sent before a few days before he decalred he was done. I haven't yet had a chance to look at the board itself, still packed. I keep getting distracted, and don't want to be interrupted when I reassemble. I'm just assuming it's there. When I get to it, I'll take my own pics and add them here, first thing I'll do when I unpack.

I looked at the board, and C6 was missing. I contacted Thomas, was confused by what he said at first, and then I had to look closer. (There's considerable artifacts from the messed up plastic loupe I used to get this image, the board is clean as a whistle.)

Sorry for what amounts to a tease, idk when I'll have time for getting this online. I have a bunch of stuff to do, but suffice to say the hardware works, and I'm very pleased with the result of Mr. Anderson's assistance. AAAAA++++ Recommended! Will use again!
