I remember the OP - David Moss, and the Fujitsu interface board for the Micros. I have always wondered whatever became of all that? Dave, did you find a Micro through here - and get it working? Love to know how much of the old computer gear you still have. Drop me a line - CompuVision Solutions in Anchorage!

I have a Fujitsu Micro 16s if anyone wants to buy it. I worked for Fujitsu in San Jose in the 80s and bought it in 1985.

My second computer was a Micro 16s. I even bought the external SCSI 5 mb hard disk. I still have the entire system with original manuals, advertising brochures, software and original packaging. This has all been in storage since the early 1980''s, but it worked when I put it away. I would love to sell this system to someone who has a computer collection or museum. If interested, please contact me through this site.

I worked for Fujitsu in the 1980s and we used the Micro 16s. I don''t have the computer, but I do have a set of software floppy discs and manuals. They are for the CPM-86 operating system, Supercalc, and Wordstar. I was going to toss these out, but thought someone might be interested. They are free, but would appreciate being compensated for the shipping charges if out of Southern California.

Back in 1984, I worked for a Canon copier dealership in Austin, TX, that also began selling the Fujitsu Micro 16s. I was sent to Santa Clara, CA, and was trained by Fujitsu on maintenance and repair.

I''m not sure how many we sold over the next year, but I believe I only made three repairs$ all for the same problem. There was an issue with a bearing that was seated in the center of each of the 5.25 floppy drives. It either was manufactured with a defect or rapidly developed a burr that would cause high-pitched squealing of the drive when it spun a disc. The solution was to take a very fine nail file and remove the burr.

Aside from that, they seemed to offer no serious problems and worked quite well. That''s about all I can remember about them.

A sidebar memory was that my daughter was born two months premature while I was attending the school, so I missed her birth. I''m still trying to live down not being there.

during the 80''s I worked for a company called "The Computer Center" in Juneau, Alaska. We sold the Fujitsu Micro 16, mostly to the State. Due to the fact that it used ms-dos and not pc-dos (IBM version) it was unable to run such programs as lotus 1-2-3 and others that the state used, and therefor sales were slow. I developed a plugin emulator board and software to allow the computer to run many of these programs. We sold several hundred of the boards at about $600 each. I still have a few of them! I''ve been looking for a Micro 16 to add to my collection if anyone knows of one!
