Credit Where Credit Is Due, Eh

A project log for DEC H-500 Computer Lab Reproduction

Reproduce the Digital Computer Lab H-500, a training tool from the late 60's aimed at teaching people the basics of logic circuits.

I'm waiting for a lumber and stain order to be ready for "curbside pickup" so I can get started on the H-500 frame. In the mean time I thought I would jump ahead and make a very important part for the build.

On the back of each Computer Lab sold was a plaque with the model and serial number as seen above. What's important to me as a proud Canadian is that so far as I can determine all H-500s were Made In Canada. So I had to make sure that my reproduction had such a plaque.

Ready to go.
