For Sale/Wanted, Suppliers / RV4S for sale.... Shortly!
« on: February 14, 2020, 02:29:28 PM »
We are looking to replace some of our Versatronics lines soon so I will have some machines and ancillaries up for grabs.

The first machine that we will be taking off line is a Silver RV4S. This machine has been in use for many years and is totally reliable. It has a reasonably new PC (built 2018) with SSD, TFT monitor, keyboard with trackpad, full set of PCB supports and tools.

This machine will be going with 1 x Vib feeder and 3 x 10x8 feeders, all recently refurbished / serviced.

If you are interested please message me. The last one that I sold to this spec sold for £1500 with a VAT invoice.

Also, we have about 60 feeders of various types which we will gradually be servicing and selling, if you are interested, please let me know.

Ref the USB mass storage driver, have a look for nusb36e - seems to work OK.

There are a few sites where you can download this but some seem to come with viruses. The .exe should be 970Kb (to fit on a FDD!)

For Sale/Wanted, Suppliers / Couple of RV's for sale
« on: January 14, 2019, 11:03:51 AM »
I have a couple of machines which I am looking to sell. We currently run 3 RV's but I have 7 machines in total and have been using these for many years so we know a bit about them. Machines for sale are:

1 x RV1S offers around £1250 plus VAT
1 x RV4S offers around £1500 plus VAT

Both will come serviced and working with 1 VIB and 2 x 10 x 8 feeders. PC'S will be a fresh build with SSD, TFT monitor, trackpad keyboard and ready to go to work. We will also supply both the Versatronics and VSMT manuals on paper with the unit. We could also offer installation if that would help.

We have A LOT of feeders, probably 40 banks or so, happy to put a package together for you to suit. All feeders have been recently serviced or will be serviced for sale.

If you are interested, please drop me a line.

With regard to Mikes OS that will not boot, I have seen this a few times when copying onto SSD.

I suggest that when you are testing this out to start off with, try installing W98 rather than copying your existing drive. To be honest, its really fast with an SSD, I have built machines from the ground up in 20 mins with an SSD rather than the usual 3 - 4 hours that it takes with an HDD

Im glad I wrote this, it seems like it has sparked some interest!

The reason that I used a raid card is that it has its own BIOS and mounts to the BIOS of the motherboard as "just another drive interface". I have tried other ways to achieve a reliable connection to a SSD, the described method has worked on every motherboard that i have tried so far. 

Another option which works sometimes is to use a PATA > SATA adapter, here is an example:

As I said, this seems to work with some motherboards but not all. I think this uses the same chipset as the one that Mike suggested.

I have been using WD Green SSD's, I havent tried any others. I like the idea of trying a PATA SSD, I may order one and try it out.


RV Hardware / PCs for RVs

I have been working for some time to find a solution to the eternal RV PC issue. We have 3 RV's in daily use and I need to keep them running yet the biggest problem that we have seen is with the PC. I now have a solution and have all of our machines running new PC hardware with SSD's, all are networked and they seem much more stable than they have been for years.

This is not a cheep fix, I recon the PC's end up costing around £500 each but its amazing how much better they RV runs!

OK, you are never going to get away from W98, but it does run well on decent hardware and I see a bootup time of 4 seconds due to the SSD, even on a P4.

If you are interested please let me know and I will write it up and post it on here
