BeebMaster - Reviving the Acorn Winchester Disc

Reviving the
Acorn Winchester Disc

Although I had put together a dual Winchester disc system in February 2005 with my Acorn Winchester remains, this was a temporary rig-up which, as you may have seen, had required two additional power supplies, one to power the discs and one to power the host adapter and Winchester controller boards.

For most of the time, I used my Winchester remains as a test setup for trying out different SCSI and ST506 drives. However, by pure chance in late April 2009, I was able to revive the power supply inside my Acorn Winchester disc remains, which gave me the opportunity to convert it permanently to a dual Winchester disc: this picture set shows how and I hope you will click on the picture links above to learn more.
