Welcome to More Fun Making It

Hi, I’m Lee. I make awesome retro geeky things out of wood, electronics and patience.

I’ve also recently decided to regress to my teenage self. Much less squeezing spots and sleeping till the afternoon and much more obsessing over retro 8 and 16bit computers and consoles. My latest videos are much more about this new passion, but I’ll certainly be returning to woodwork soon!

You can find all of my builds here, the whole journey, including mistakes, awesome bits, mistakes, and the occasional stumble into success!

Playing on the finished products is so satisfying, but really, it’s more fun making it.

Samsung SyncMaster 940mw Repair

In this video, I show you how to repair a Samsung SyncMaster 940MW TV by replacing the capacitors in the power supply. This TV is a great choice for retro gaming enthusiasts, as it has all the inputs you need, such as VGA, DVI, S-video, and composite. You can use it to connect your old computers and consoles and enjoy the nostalgia. The Samsung SyncMaster 940MW is a 19-inch LCD monitor with a built-in TV tuner and speakers. It has a resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. It was released in 2006 and received positive reviews for its picture quality and versatility. However, some users reported that the TV would not turn on or would shut off randomly after a few years of use. This is a common problem caused by faulty capacitors in the power supply board. If you have a Samsung SyncMaster 940MW TV that is not working properly, don’t throw it away. You can fix it yourself with some basic tools and skills. All you need are some replacement capacitors, a soldering iron, a screwdriver, and some patience. In this video, I will guide you through the steps of opening the TV, identifying the bad capacitors, desoldering them, and soldering the new ones. You will be surprised by how easy and satisfying it is to repair your own TV. I hope you find this video helpful and informative.

MEGA Donation with Rare and Unusual Items!

John who used to work at the Thorn EMI factory where they manufactured ZXSpectrum 48k’s and SinclairQL’s dropped off a haul of riches and wonder. Including a very rare, possibly unique QL motherboard and a ZX Spectrum with a controversial mod.

Weird yellow ZX Spectrum 48k!

I bought this 48k ZX Spectrum for the upcoming charity auctions when I spotted that the motherboard was on of these unusual yellow ones with blue silkscreen. Hopefully someone will buy this for lots of money which will be donated to the Befriending Scheme charity fundraising.
