I have for sale 10 Atari 'Guddler' Jump Leads for an Atari cab;



FAQ

Q1. What is it?
A1. It is an additional +5VDC and GND points from your AR/AR2 to your PCB.

Q2. What is a 'Guddler'?
A2. Resident UKVAC genius and inventor.

Q3. Why do I need it?
A3. Because it can save your edge connector and edge pins on your PCB from getting cooked like below;



Q4. But I have already done the 'Sense' mod on my AR/AR2 so I don't need it right?
A4. What it means is that you are a mong.  The 'Sense' mod does not rectify the underlying problem.  It simply stops the AR/AR2 from cranking up the volts to compensate for poor conductivity, which in turn produces heat due to resistance. 

Q5. What causes the poor conductivity then?
A5. Usually a worn edge connector, which wants replacing.  Except you will never replace it because it is a soul destroying and boring job.

Q6. Are there any other benefits?
A6. Yes, it also improves grounding and has in some circumstances reduced irritating humming.

Q7. Is it easy to install?
A7. Yes, anyone can do it.  Simply hook one Red side to the +5VDC test point on your AR (+SENSE on your AR2), the Black to GND.  Do the same for the PCB side;



Q8. My AR2 does not have any tabs on the Test points, what should I do?
A8. Bring it to my attention and I will supply you with a couple.

Q9. What cabs can it be used on?
A9. Any Atari cab from the classic era that uses an AR/AR2.

The product has been officially endorsed by Mr Martin 'Guddler' White himself.  This is what he had to say about it;

"Since I started to use the 'Guddler' Jump Lead my life has improved dramatically, the curls in my hair have also tightened up.  Life is great."

Want one?  The cost is £3.00 for a Full Sized Upright and £2.50 for a Cabaret/Cocktail (please specify).

Postage & Packing is £1.30, add £0.25 for each additional item for multiple purchases.

PLEASE NOTE:  ALL SALE PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO UKVAC ADMINISTRATION

The Atari 'Guddler' Jump Lead is copyright of Guddler 2009.

I may consider building more if the demand is there.

Without this product the life of my Asteroids was empty and meaningless. 

Since purchasing the Guddler jump lead I've found that my cabinet is revitalised.

No longer am I having to suffer irritating humming

I totally endorse this product.  You will be 100% satisfied...guaranteed.

Thank you!

WTF??

But seriously, the points are valid. Grounding and supply issues are greatly improved and you SHOULD see a reduction in hum in the audio as well, though no guarantees there as there are other factors that could cause that too.

I'm tempted to buy one myself but to be fair, that would be highly lazy given I have all the bits here!
