    OK - I'll ship out today. Should easily fit a USPS Small Priority Box

    Do note: I am using the label to recreate it in MS Publisher for our club project - so even if you cannot remove and reapply your label, I'll have recreated ones down the road (not self-adhesive so you'd need Scotch 77 spray glue which is what I use for all my "fake Heathkit" panels)

    Box just shipped out with OEM case, 2 sets of OEM clip cables, and 3 of the LCD displays. Should be there Monday/Tuesday

    The one shown in the photos appears to have a backlight -- see the white PCB with the two solder pads on the left side of the second photo? And the pads labeled A and likely K on the third photo.

    What I have is what I have - from AADE and Mr. Hecht's estate.

    Either it will work for Bill or it won't - but those are the displays that I have at my disposal

    Yes, the LCD itself has a backlight but the device isn't wired for it.
    And thanks Dave!

    Hi again.
    The NOS display works as it should. Good contrast like before.
    There's a little Murphy wrench in the works, though. The bezel, actually the LCD component on the board itself, is thicker than the original by about 1-2 mm and that prevents the case from closing properly.
    I don't know how Neil dealt with this but tomorrow I'll take the Dremel to the mounting bosses molded in the case and trim them down a mm or two. That should do it.
    Dave, do you have the plastic buttons that press onto the pushbutton switches?

    A second box? No, but I haven't checked the mail today.

    Oh, sorry - I missed that you got it. My bad eyes :)

    I'll check with the guy at the club for the button covers...

    Did the box fit OK? They used 2 or 3 variants over the years. Just like with the display board.
