Though cramped, my Amiga workshop is a place where I enjoy using and testing my Commodore collection
Alternative methods are used to add peripherals to base Amiga models to improve performance. I make every effort not to break up or cannibalise machines
Big box Amigas are tested regularly but kept in safe storage. Though these machines are not used in the workshop I do protect and maintain them at all times
I am always on the look-out for rare machines and constantly scour web sites, auctions and local press for worthy additions to my collection
I would like to have one of every Amiga model working in order that I can access hardware and software. This is the best way of answering questions about the various Amiga models. The A500 and A590 are of particular interest to me, as the A500 was probably the most popular Amiga
Early Commodore models are also fascinating, and some show the early development of the platform to the Amiga Though developed by a completely different group of people, the C128D I believe is similar in many ways to the A1000
Collected also are magazines, books, software, coverdisks and games and I am making efforts to put together whole sets of media I use these collections as reference sources and often assist others by supplying detail and copies of valuable information
No amiga collection would be complete without the various peripherals and hardware. To this end I have collected expansion cards, disk drives, CD-ROMS, interfaces, frame grabbers etc which on the whole are associated with specific computers
Ideally the computers are collected in their original box but sadly this is not always possible.
It`s also great having the odd expansion that you really have no clue what it`s for. Thatís when the Amiga Groups come into their own and help in identifying items of hardware.
I do collect from abroad, like Germany and USA, but you have to be aware of voltage differences and language
It is always better for the Amiga community to try and encourage others to keep their beloved computers. But if not possible I will try to obtain from sellers all that they have to ensure that the collection is kept as complete as is possible. I discourage people from separating computers from their boxes and then hacking them apart to sell in bits
