A retro version of Yet Another (Discrete) Clock, with vintage parts

More retro stuff received:

And in the quartz it looks like only 3 wires are there out of 7 (some of them were connected together or not connected at all):

It's 2 contacts connected together for 1 side of the crystal and 2 separate contacts on other side of the crystal, so I cut all other wires to keep only 3 important ones...

Very neat ! some D311, MP-somethings, resistors...

I haven't cut everything, to prevent stress in the glass.

I still must better document my version of the oscillator, so you can make it yourself :-)

  Are you sure? yes | no

it's МП42А (MP42A) with 1 MHz limit

Hopefully it will be enough for the large crystal :-)
