Default Any possibility to have the Gerber files and a part list ?

Hello

I sent a e-mail to Grant yesterday asking exactly the same things I'm going to ask here, but figured I'd have more chance to reach him here.

So, this post is to ask if it's possible to send me the gerber files for the PCBs as well as a part list and, maybe, one of your manuals. (PDF format is better, but I can buy a paper one if you really want.)

The reason behind this is that I am a student and can't afford a 1k+ kit on one time.
I'm willing to build an Altair 8800 reproduction as a study project. (And, later, show it to my class for learning purpose.)
What I plan to do is to build the Altair piece by piece, to minimize expensive costs on a short period of time.
The problem is, considering that I don't have original Altair PCBs under the hand, I can't rebuild them from scratch. And there comes my little request.
Obviously, I won't sell any kit to anyone, if that concerns you (Firstly, I don't have the budget to maintain a kit-selling activity and I don't have the time.)

Also, beside the gerber files, could you send me a part list and, maybe, the PDFs for your color manual ? (I can buy the manual on paper, if you want, or even the electronic version.)

Thank you,
TimScampi

I'm also looking for Gerber files for Altair 8800... Is it possible to get them for non-commercial use?

Talking Kit Of The Month

Hi All;
I have a Grant Reproduction, That I would be willing to sell on a Monthly basis.... I have Grants permission, But, you would BE PAYING MORE for it than for the Kit from Grant.... Also, I would only be sending Some of it at a time, as Payment is made.... When All Payments are made You would have Everything for a Full Machine, that Grant would have Sent you.... I can do 10 or 12 Payments....
THANK YOU Marty

Default kit by the month

HI All;
Randy, I don't have any kits left, as I sold them, I am waiting for the check to come on the second one. At present, I have one that is put together, All ready built.... Since I didn't get a response for selling by the month, I went ahead and sold the kits all at once..... I have a second one that is Partially put together, that is also for sale.....
THANK YOU Marty

Hello.
I just wanted to ask if anything had been done on this front, as I am a 15 year old student and it seems that the kits are no longer being made, even though I wouldn't be able to afford it.
Thanks,
William
