WHILE STOCKS LAST !|
I had a wonderful time for 13 years sourcing, making and selling all sorts of upgrades and accessories for the BBC Micro and other Acorn Computers, but at the end of 2016 I had to put it all to a stop.
I wish I could give you facts and figures on how many 8271 kits, BBC B Econet upgrades, BeebMaster Econet Clocks, Econet Modules, Sideways RAM modules or Econet leads I've sold since 2003, but I never kept an accurate record.
In April 2018, after insisting (once again) that there would never be any more BBC Model B Econet kits, I began the hunt for parts once again, and by July 2018 I had enough components to put together 30 kits, with a reasonable degree of certainty that I could do more if they all sold. I allowed a bit of time to fulfil some advance orders and to let some early interest come to fruition, and in September 2018, the remaining kits of the July 2018 were listed here. I've also restored listings of the BeebMaster Econet Clock, BeebMaster Module, Terminator Plugs and Econet Leads to help complete the BeebShop Econet hardware offering.
I'll keep this page here for as long as there is demand for items, and stock available. It could be weeks, months or years - that depends on the 6 billion of you out there; you might also be able to find some BeebShop stock on E-Bay here.
Here's a bit of a nostalgic look at some of my bestsellers - the 8271 Disc Upgrade, the Sideways RAM Module and Disc Power Leads.
Ordering from the BeebShop couldn't be simpler! In fact, I've tried to make the whole process so painless that it's a wonder other websites aren't making it this easy too! You don't have to register with me, or subscribe to any monthly newsletters and you don't even have to tell me a whole load of personal information and half of your life history! Let's face it, you don't want to tell me and I don't want to know, so let's skip all that guff and go straight to the Buying bit so everyone's happy!
Yep, all you have to do to buy from the BeebShop is click on the "Put in my BeebBasket" button next to most of the items and then you will be shown the contents of your BeebBasket using a secure Paypal shopping screen. You can then opt to carry on shopping or pay for the items you have chosen via Paypal.
At any time, you can click on the "Look in My BeebBasket" button at the top of this page to see the items you are currently buying, and change quantities or remove anything you don't want.
That's all there is to it! Did I mention that you don't have to register or subscribe for anything or subject yourself to receiving oodles of junk mail from me or buy things you don't want because of a minimum order level or tell me your telephone number or date of birth or annual income?
All prices above exclude postage and packing. A charge for UK first-class postage & packing will be added when you check-out - please enquire for overseas postage rates. Tracked and signed-for deliveries are available on request.
PLEASE NOTE: I do not offer a same-day dispatch service! Most items will be sent within 3-4 working days of receipt of payment. If the dispatch time is likely to be any longer than this, I will endeavour to notify you.
All items are new unless specifically advertised as used/second hand and are subject to availability.
Clicking on the "Put in My BeebBasket" buttons will take you to a secure Paypal shopping screen with the current UK postage and packing rate applied. For enquiries about other items, or overseas postage or recorded delivery on items, or alternative payment methods, please contact me at BeebShop@BeebMaster.co.uk.
I endeavour to respond to all genuine e-mail enquiries as quickly as I can, but I know that sometimes people can have a little bit of difficulty in receiving my reply, so please check your junk mail box before thinking I've been ignoring you!
