I have also ordered a very low-cost EPROM eraser from eBay user techex_us. This unit also arrived quickly and well packed. It is definitely a piece of gear that I do not plan to leave connected to mains unattended. The entire device feels quite cheap. The AC power cord is thin and the rotary dial seems to have a mind of its' own. The one small piece that I do trust is the mains power switch. I can't complain for less than $25 shipped.

I have a box of Intel 8035L microcontrollers (from the MCS-48, 8048 line) that have been in my collection for a few years. They have a copyright date of 1977 on them. I plan to bring one of these processors online on a breadboard. It should be interesting to experiment with a processor that is nearly twice my age.
