    Welcome to the final episode of the ZX Spectrum saga! Ben completes the remaining mods for his completely hand-wired portable. Once all the electronic components are tested and working, Ben builds the unit into a specially designed case fresh off the 3D printer. Ben enjoys the fruits of his labor and enjoys some classic gaming on his new system - arguably the most complex project he’s ever tackled on the the show.
