I'll just leave this here! Using modern SMD LEDs.
Really love that set-up, Dann. If I ever end up doing one of these again I'll definitely go with SMD's.
In the meantime I'm very much looking forward to receiving the new PCB from DaveP. Sourced a few parts from early 80's calculator I might add to it and curious to see how I'm going to fit it on top of the mechanics.
Very nervous to cut into such a lovely piece of work though!
