Blue Boards are now unobtainable from the manufacturer, and second hand ones are hard to get. I have spare yellow boards. Can I convert this model to yellow boards? Any advice would most appreciated.

I think I might be able to answer my own question. I have done a little bit of experimenting, and it seems like it IS possible. The are only are two minor problems. The decals are slightly different, and the lid switch is by-passed.

The latter means that the machine doesn't stop, when the lid is opened. In my view, this is not important, unless one has little kiddies around, who might want to stick their little noses into the machine while it is going.

OK, I take your point. I will try to adapt the lid and reed switch from a yellow board machine to the blue board machine.
