  1. Good post. Food grade grease should be type 1 most seem to be 2 . Fuchs cassida eps1 is good. By service manual ,available on w.a.c.e.m. Files capacitor should still be .1 uF probably makes no differences. There is an original sky blue and white one on wacem. b is not official designation in manual 3 different castings. hope this helps Lloyd

  2. Love the writeup and the clear pictures. I’m also in the middle of an A700-B restoration. Would it be possible to contact you with a couple of questions?

    1. Sorry, I’ve been away and didn’t see your comment. You surely can ask questions – if you haven’t already figured out the answers!

      1. Hello , i am in the middle of restoring an A700 and very interested in the circuit board you have made by any chance do you have a spare 1 i could purchase ?

      2. Sorry, I just custom made a one-off board to fit the particular components I had, and how I planned to wire the mixer. Each mixer board was different. It’s not difficult to do if you have have access to a laser printer – I’ve found Canon glossy photo paper works well – but it can take a few goes to get a good transfer to the board. You have to iron it hot using quite a bit of pressure. To etch the board I use a hydrogen peroxide / hydrochloric acid mix, which are readily available. Alternatively you could look at other one-off methods like photo-resist. It’s satisfying making your own board – I suggest you give it a go!

        Hope your restoration is going well.
