Jeff, I see you've found them on fleabay but FYI Michael posted about 10 days ago that they were eBay item 273254508468 where I found them too. The cost of a set of boards is USD11 whereas the postage to AUS is about USD19 - hardly a good deal unfortunately. I asked the seller about any less costly postage and he said he was bound by eBay rules to have package tracking, hence the cost. I guess I'll do without.
Hope your postage costs within CONUS are a bit more reasonable!

Wow, thanks to all for your prompt responses! I found the adapter boards on fleebay and will order some and re-cap the 5 caps in the PS with newer technology. I have been away from my roots as a EE running a sucessfull IT company that pays more, but with quarantine and all i have had more time and interest in repairing old equipment. Component technology has sure changed since the big can capacitors we designed into the 48 v power suplies at the ITT phone company where I started. I remember a tech soldered one in backwards and I was up on a ladder debugging some wirewarap backplanes and it narrowly missed my ear as it shot its outer can off like a bullet.
Of course now that I have gotten reinterested in boat anchor tech the Hamfests are a distant memory. Hope they can start up again!
