NOS Bare Boards: What to do?

One other thing, before soldering stuff onto that board, make a copy
of it. (Do photocopiers make decent prints of bare boards?) Once
a board has chips soldered onto it, it can be a pain to figure out
which things connect to what. Having a bare-board print could help
a lot in reverse-engineering the schematic (although I suspect there
are still MP-A schematics to be had out there). And who knows, you
might someday want to clone that board.

] it until needed.
] Building it won't be a priority, though. The MP-A wasn't exactly the

] couple of scarce parts for its companion video board.
