Opinions Wanted On 555 Board Near Me.
« on: May 16, 2019, 10:43:54 AM »
I have been watching a board near me for a while. Finally down to a reasonable price. Before I make an offer I would like some expert opinions as to its condition. Is it complete? Can it be made to function easily? I am not an expert by any means on these things but as far as I can tell the only thing missing is a power supply. Can anyone see anything else? I am thinking of offering $100.00.
Thanks, Harry

This is a Leich L55 board a clone of a WE 555 board. I dont see any missing parts. The loose plugs are for  expansion. A 555 diagram will work .One more thing ,you will need a power supply. One for a 1A2 key system will work. Make sure it has a ringing generator

Thanks Robbie. IIRC the power supply should be a 20B1 or something like that? If I get it I will be looking for one.

Looks like a nice board Harry.
Even has the conference unit inside :)

The conference unit is highly desirable on WE 555's. I suppose it is on the Leich model as well.

Thanks Guys. I also put this out on the lists and got a lot of positive remarks there.
I made an offer of $100.00. I noted I will pay in cash on pickup. We will see. I will keep you all posted.

Thats a good find with the conference circuit :)   I just got my 555 operational last night.   It was relatively easy.

OK, The seller declined my $100 offer. The auction ended with no bids. I will wait to see what happens. From my understanding he is moving soon and can not take it with him. I am hoping he will change his mind about my offer when his move gets closer.
