I'm *this* close to having a working Star Wars, but my HV board is
toast (big surprise). I could order everything to rebuild it, but it's
also burned pretty bad so I'm hoping someone here has either:

1) a spare working or n/w for sale that's a better candidate for
rebuild

-or-

2) a deal on a Wintron or PennTrans HV unit that they're not using

My other option is to design a replacement using a readily available
transformer on my own board, but that might take months and cost
countless lives....

PS- I've got 96 in 1 Multi Pac's for trade too.

Thanks for the tip Matt, I'd totally forgotten about that option and
still might go that route. Since this a keeper Star Wars in nice
shape, I'd like to keep it as original as possible, but I'd rather play
it than hunt for parts too :)

Strange, it was wavy for me when used in an Amplifone.
