BeebMaster - My Beebs


My Beebs

I have an ever-expanding collection of BBC computers, including Acorn machines before and after the BBC micro and a multitude of add-ons and peripherals.

I hope you will click on the picture links below to learn more about my collection:



My Econet

My Econet is a permanent installation of 3 Masters, 1 BBC B, a FileStore file server & hard disc, an SJ Research MDFS, and spare outlets to rig up ad-hoc additional 8-bit and 32-bit stations as required.

My SJ Research MDFS

My MDFS Tower is now connected to my main network after years of living on its own. I've gathered quite a bit of MDFS kit over the years - take a look at all my MDFS main units and expansion boxes here!

My Domesday Machine

I am lucky to have my own BBC Domesday System, which I put together over a number of years from original parts starting with a basic BBC Master 128.

My Master 512

In fact, I own two Master 512s, and this section takes a closer look at this rather interesting machine, available as an upgrade to the standard Master 128.

My 8-bit Machines

From BBC computers like the Model B and Master 128 to pre-BBC Atoms and Systems.

My Cheese Wedges

My collection of these distinctive-looking 8-bit add-ons is here. Also you will find third-party cheese wedge add-ons and second processors.

My Electrons

I have a small collection of Acorn Electrons and add-ons which you can see here.

My Econet Bits

File Servers, Clocks, socket boxes, terminators, interfaces and modules - it's all in my Econet collection!

My Hard Discs

From fully-working Acorn and Technomatic Winchester Discs to my collection of old ST506 and SCSI discs and controller boards and host adapters.

My 8-Bit Peripherals

Anything and everything that connects up to an 8-bit Acorn that isn't covered anywhere above!

My 32-bit Machines

Here you can see my Archimedes A410/1, A420/1, A3000, Acorn Network Computer and A4 laptops!

My Nexus Kit

I don't know much about Nexus, the 32-bit networking system devised by SJ Research, but I've got a few bits, and probably enough to have my very own Nexus network, if I knew how to work it!

My Greatest Find

Every now and again I am offered a collection which is irresistible. The greatest of them all was in May 2003, just after BeebMaster first began!

PC Downgrade
