BeebMaster Econet Clock
|The BeebMaster Econet Clock is the ultimate network clock, combining all the best features of the earlier Acorn and SJ Research clocks: please click here for more information about the brand-new BeebMaster Econet Clock.|
Econet Interfaces & Upgrade Packs
|This is my own Econet interface upgrade kit for the BBC Model B. It contains all the chips and other components needed to perform the Econet upgrade. The kit is supplied with DNFS ROM and full fitting instructions.|
The final batch is now ready! It's impossible to predict how long this last run of Econet upgrade kits will last; it could be a couple of months or it could be a couple of years, but they are here as long as I've got them!
|The BeebMaster Econet Module is suitable for the Master Series and many of the Archimedes range. These are brand-new units which have been specially produced.|
|£35||I have a number of brand-new A3020/A4000 Acorn Econet Upgrade Kits, complete with the 32-bit style Econet module, A3020/A4000 Econet lead (15-pin D type to 5-pin DIN) and fitting instructions. Please enquire for further details.|

Filing System ROMs
|ANFS 4.18 ROM||£5||Brand-new chip containing Acorn ANFS 4.18, a version of the Advanced Network Filing System for use with the BBC Model B with Econet interface. ANFS 4.18 provides all manner of benefits over the original NFS 3.60, including additional commands in ROM such as LEX, LCAT, FS, PROT, UNPROT and using improved get byte/put byte processing to speed up file processing including EXEC and DUMP operations.|
|ANFS 4.25 ROM||£5||Brand-new chip containing Acorn ANFS 4.25, the last issue of the Advanced Network Filing System for use with all BBC Master Series machines with Econet module fitted.|
|DNFS 1.20 ROM||£5||Brand-new chip containing DNFS 1.20, the combined Disc & Econet ROM for the BBC Model B and BBC B+. DNFS 1.20 contains Acorn 8271 DFS 1.20 and Acorn NFS 3.60, and the Tube host code which is required to allow 6502 and other second processors to be detected by a BBC B.|
|DNFS 1.21 ROM||£5||Brand-new chip containing DNFS 1.21, with the modified DFS version 1.21 reducing some of the timing problems experienced when using modern 3.5" floppy disc drives with the 8271 disc controller, and NFS 3.60 and the Tube host code.|
DNFS 1.21 ROM
|£6||If your Econet file server isn't station 254, and your Econet printer server isn't station 235 - for instance, if you are running your network with a FileStore or SJ MDFS, which combine the file and print server in a single network station - then using NFS on a BBC Model B can be a bit of a pain: you have to tell the Beeb the correct server station numbers every time you switch on or press CTRL-BREAK. With this bespoke DNFS 1.21 chip, the correct station numbers are programmed into the ROM to eradicate this time-consuming and frustrating problem!|
Simply tell me the File Server and Printer Server station number in the Special Instructions when ordering, and I'll zap the correct numbers into the ROM for you.
27C256 32K EPROM
|£4||These are BRAND NEW 28-pin EPROMs which can be used as direct replacements for the old 2764 8K and 27128 16K EPROMs. They are suitable for holding 8K, 16K or 32K ROM images. They can also hold 2 16K ROM images for those programmers which can programme "high" and "low" halves of the chip.|
The programming voltage of these devices is 12.5V so they will work with any BBC EPROM programmers which use 12V. They can be erased with ultra-violet light.
|27C256 32K EPROM 5-pack||£16||As above, but five for the price of four!|
32K Sideways RAM Module with Utility Disc
|The new BeebMaster 32K Sideways RAM module provides twice as much sideways RAM storage as its 16K predecessor whilst still only taking up a single ROM socket inside your Beeb! The 32K RAM is arranged as two separate 16K banks of RAM into each of which a ROM image or other data can be loaded. The module comes with full fitting and operating instructions and a utility disc on 3½" floppy with routines for loading data into the module.|
32K Sideways RAM Module (no Utility Disc)
|The new BeebMaster 32K Sideways RAM module, as above but without a utility disc, for those who don't need it or who can make up their own disc from the disc image download.|
16K Sideways RAM Module
|BeebMaster's own sideways RAM module for the BBC Model B providing a 16K bank of SRAM. Complete with full fitting instructions and a link to download a disc image for you to make up a utility disc for loading data into the module.|
N.B. Following the introduction of the new 32K module, the 16K SRAM module is being phased out and will be available only as long as the present stock lasts.
62256 RAM Chip for Sideways ROM/RAM Boards
|£4||These chips fit into the sockets provided on certain BBC Model B ROM expansion boards intended for 8K RAM chips. There are usually two sockets and two chips provide a 16K bank of sideways RAM on board. No soldering required - just plug in and go! I am supplying the 62256 device, in fact a 32K RAM chip but suitable for all ROM boards which require the 6264. These devices can also be used in Master Series ROM cartridges to add an additional 16K Sideways RAM bank.|
|6264 RAM Chip for Sideways ROM/RAM Boards|
|As above but the 6264 8K chip which I have now been able to obtain.|
Brand New Spares
|I have a comprehensive range of IC spares for the Acorn Atom, BBC Model B and Master 128. The full list is available here.|
TV Aerial Leads
Cub Monitor Lead
|They're back after an absence of two or three years! I haven't been able to get hold of a supply of ready-made "Cub monitor" leads, so I have had some specially produced. These leads, made in the UK, are approximately one yard long with a 6-pin 240-degree DIN plug at either end, suitable for connecting a BBC micro to a Microvitec Cub monitor, or other VDU requiring a 6-pin DIN through-wired cable.|
TV aerial lead

Ribbon Cables & Floppy Drive Power Leads
5¼" Floppy Drive
|Ribbon cable suitable for use with BBC 5¼" floppy disc drives. These brand-new ribbon cables are approximately 3 feet long with a 34-way IDC header at one end for plugging under your Beeb and and edge card connector at the other end to slot onto the floppy drive. They are also suitable for certain types of ST506 Winchester Disc controller boards.|
3½" Floppy Drive
|Ribbon cable suitable for use with BBC 3½" floppy disc drives. These brand-new ribbon cables are approximately 3 feet long with a 34-way IDC header at either end to connect between the underside of the Beeb and the floppy drive. They are also suitable for some 1MHz bus devices such as host adapters or for through-connecting devices with a 1MHz out socket at the back.|
|You know how it is - the Winchester, which weighs 7 tons, is at one end of the room with 189 things on top of it, but the Beeb you want to use it with is at the other end of the room. What you need is an extension cable! These brand-new 34-way ribbon cables are 3 feet long with an IDC socket at one end for plugging into the Disc Drive or 1MHz Bus socket underneath your Beeb, and an IDC extension plug at the other end to take the device which needs a bit more rope. Suitable for floppy disc drives, Winchester discs and other 1MHz bus devices. Other cable lengths available on request.|
|Ribbon cable suitable for use with Acorn Winchester Discs and other devices which use a 34-way cable connected to a 37-way D-type connector. These brand-new 34-way ribbon cables are approximately 3 feet long with a 34-way IDC header at one end for connecting to your BBC micro and a 37-way D-type plug at the other end for connecting to the Acorn Winchester, Digistore or other suitable device.|
Single 3½" Floppy
|Power cable for a single 3½" floppy disc drive. These brand new leads are approximately 3 feet long with an auxilary power plug at one end to connect to the aux power output of the BBC PSU and a 4-way socket at the other end for plugging into standard 3½" floppy disc drives.|

|Power cable for dual 3½" floppy disc drives. These brand new leads are approximately 3 feet long with an auxilary power plug at one end to connect to the aux power output of the BBC PSU and two 4-way sockets at the other end for plugging into two standard 3½" floppy disc drives.|
These are a new batch of leads with a longer lead between the two floppy drive connectors; the distance between the two is now approximately 3 inches.
BBC Model B Keyboard DIP Switch
BBC Model B
Keyboard DIP Switch
|Brand-new 8-way DIP switch for soldering to the keyboard links of a BBC Model B. This switch allows you to change the keyboard link settings quickly and easily without the bother or permanence of soldering wire links.|
Especially useful for setting the disc controller drive timings to the optimum settings for modern 3½" floppy drives - see here.
Composite Video Colour Capacitor
|Brand-new 470pF capacitor for soldering to a BBC Master motherboard to add the colour signal to the Composite Video output. Also suitable for BBC Model B motherboards prior to the introduction of the colour composite selection link.|

Ordering Information & Special Offers
LOW STOCK WARNING
Much as I might wish otherwise, the reality is that the BeebShop isn't going to be here forever! I'm finding it more and more difficult to source replacement parts for many items at the BeebShop. Most items will be phased out when the current stock is exhausted. I've now run out of stock of BeebMaster floppy disc drives and 8271 disc upgrade kits. I only have limited stock of Econet upgrade kits. I should be able to supply ribbon cables and power leads for a good while yet, as well as Cub monitor leads, blank EPROMs and my Sideways RAM products. The good news is that the supply of BeebMaster Econet Clocks and Econet Modules will probably never run out.
When stocks reach a very low level for a particular item, or I am only able to supply an item occasionally due to difficulties in obtaining stock, they will no longer appear here but will be listed on E-Bay when stock is available.
If I've got anything to sell on E-Bay, please check here to see any current listings.
Regrettably, I haven't got any stocks of power supplies, keyboards, keytops or keyswitches, so please don't ask as I'll only have to disappoint you!
MORE POSTAL PRICE RISES
April 2013 saw the cost of first- and second-class stamps held, but for anything deeper than an inch, the price has risen from £2.70 to £3.00, meaning the cost has practically doubled from the 2011 price of £1.58. Additional size bands have been introduced to ensure that everyone ends up paying even more: the packet rate is now called "small parcels", and is only applicable for parcels up to about 3 inches deep. Over that counts as a "medium" parcel, costing at least £5.65. I have revised the postal charges accordingly, but I don't think it's fair that it will cost almost six quid to send a little box weighing almost nothing. In future I will be sending many of the bulkier items using door-to-door couriers on a 3-day delivery. This will reduce the overall cost of postage but may result in longer delivery times.
Ordering from the BeebShop couldn't be simpler! In fact, I've tried to make the whole process so painless that it's a wonder other websites aren't making it this easy too! You don't have to register with me, or subscribe to any monthly newsletters and you don't even have to tell me a whole load of personal information and half of your life history! Let's face it, you don't want to tell me and I don't want to know, so let's skip all that guff and go straight to the Buying bit so everyone's happy!
Yep, all you have to do to buy from the BeebShop is click on the "Put in my BeebBasket" button next to most of the items and then you will be shown the contents of your BeebBasket using a secure Paypal shopping screen. You can then opt to carry on shopping or pay for the items you have chosen via Paypal.
At any time, you can click on the "Look in My BeebBasket" button at the top of this page to see the items you are currently buying, and change quantities or remove anything you don't want.
If there is no "Put in my BeebBasket" button or you have an enquiry about an item, just drop me a quick line to Enquiries@BeebShop.co.uk and I'll get back to you with the price including postage and payment methods you can use.
That's all there is to it! Did I mention that you don't have to register or subscribe for anything or subject yourself to receiving oodles of junk mail from me or buy things you don't want because of a minimum order level or tell me your telephone number or date of birth or annual income?
I will ship most items worldwide but heavy or bulky items including BBC Master computers, printers, second hand floppy disc drives and monitors are only available in the United Kingdom.
All prices above exclude postage and packing. Very small items will be sent by First Class Post. Bulkier items will be sent by courier using a three-day delivery service. Tracked and signed-for deliveries are available on request.
PLEASE NOTE: I do not offer a same-day dispatch service! Most items will be sent within 3-4 working days of receipt of payment. If the dispatch time is likely to be any longer than this, I will endeavour to notify you.
All items are new unless specifically advertised as used/second hand and are subject to availability.
Clicking on the "Put in My BeebBasket" buttons will take you to a secure Paypal shopping screen with the current UK postage and packing rate applied. For enquiries about other items, or overseas postage or recorded delivery on items, or alternative payment methods, please contact me at Enquiries@BeebShop.co.uk.
I endeavour to respond to all genuine e-mail enquiries as quickly as I can, but I know that sometimes people can have a little bit of difficulty in receiving my reply, so please check your junk mail box before thinking I've been ignoring you!
