Note that all magnet’s must have a diode across them for two reason’s.

1/. To protect the driver transistor’s.
2/. To make the magnet’s release as quickly as possible.

The 5 volt supply for the 74LS00 was provided by the PIO socket on the NASCOM, so that if a 12 core screened cable is used (i.e. screen = Ov), there will be ONE spare way.

The print magnet’s, R1 through CK, are underneath on the left, and from left to right are:–

T2   CK   T1   R2A   R1   R2   R5

As for the control magnet’s, it’s simply a matter of applying power to each one in turn and noting the effect. They are situated on the right hand side, underneath.
