Sorry guys both 808's are spoken for. Myself and Vincenzo330 are the proud new owners.

Brilliant to finally see another accurate one photographed, it's helped clear up a few details I was still a bit sketchy on (like that odd round thing beneath the 1st black chip on the left).

Wait until you see the mod we are doing on an 808d with the digital display.....

I agree as we got two 808d's with two differant board layouts. It appears to me that the "socket" was added by the studio.

As far as I've seen, the 82d and 808d circuit boards look quite similar, and isn't the photo that JoeLuna posted at the top (along with Vince's second photo) of an 82d?

Plus the title of the thread is "Real Sanyo Calculator Board Discussion", right? So... I guess it seemed sort of relevant?

The picture at the top this thread is an 82d82d that we got along with our 2 808d's. I also have it for sale in the for sale section here on gbfans for about $1000 less than the one linked to on ebay.

They share some of the same parts but they look similar only in that they're both nixie calculators. The 82d is just wrong all the way around. Not a bad thing to harvest parts from but if we're gonna talk about accurate calculators we should stick to the 808D and its variants.

Ok so you all have seen my 808d with the digital screen. If not here it is.

Vincenzo330 and I decided to modify it to look like the screen used model. Over all the board is the same, but there are so many variations of the 808 board that they all have their own look. So after the mods here is what I have for a GB1 belt gizmo.

I am happy and don't think I will need a new gizmo ever again, unless I can get a true nixie 808d board....

Oh yeah, and later this week I will have an ICC-808d power cable. We will know for sure if it is the right coiled cord or not!

Everyone should check out this page. It appears that we all may have been searching for the wrong calculators. This Minolta Minolcom has the same basic board as the 808d, but the chip layout is identical to the resin boards you can order from Nick-A-Tron. I believe there were many differant style of boards used in the filming of GB1 so who knows whats right or wrong?

The Minolcom is a known variant. Spengler28 inadvertantly copied one not too long ago: http://www.gbfans.com/community/viewtop ... =4&t=25940

The problem with the belt gizmo is it changes based on how far into shooting the movie they are. All the NY scenes they have 808d's, rooftop IIRC it's a mix due to stunts and the sedgewick is mostly stunts/replacements.

Your gizmo looks amazing, Joe. I don't know what you paid for it, but I'd be afraid to wear it out for fear of it getting bruised somehow.

That Minolcom board is definitely similar, and is the one I also based my styrene board's layout on. I like the look of the nixie digits on that board a little better, as well - less "digital" looking.
