I am about to refurbish my clipboard by replacing the old rusty clip mechanism with a shiny new one and I was wondering what other people had made from un-needed PCB's?
My clipboard is made from a circuit board that I laid out in the 70's using the old crepe tape and dot on mylar method that didn't pass incoming QC. It was for a 6809-based data acquisition system. The fuse holder on the clip was a bad idea for a pencil holder that I don't intend to add to the refurb.
The inset of the reverse side shows a properly routed "star ground" in the analog section, just for the heck of it since star grounds have bee atopic on this forum. That big 32-pin pattern was for the ADC80 a/d converter. State of the art for the time!
Has anyone else re-purposed old circuit boards?
