    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    I wish the only thing this drive needed was a re-cap, that'd be a lot easier than trying to find this gear!

    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    Ugh....I guess glue might be my only option. Unless maybe somehow I could make a mold of the gear and cast it......

    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    Hello Everyone! I was curious as to if anyone has had any luck with this. In the mean time, the other idea I had to fix my gear was to use UV cured glue-it might work? We'll see!

    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    @jessenator- Thanks! I've never done any 3d printing myself (at some point I'll buy one). But yea, I'd guess you'd need a very small nozzle because of the tiny size of the gear. If necessary, I can take a better picture of it for you. @mattsoft- It could be. I actually do have another...

    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    @mattsoft -It's interesting that you say that because I have the exact same problem with mine. And I'm sure that the LED's aren't burnt out because I tested them.

    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    Yea, that's what i was worried about! It's such a tiny gear....every gear that has 12 teeth that I've seen for sale has a minimum diameter of 7mm....just a bit to big to replace this gear. I wonder if I could change some of the gears and simply use a slightly different setup.....

    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    Hey @mattsoft- It is the gear in the picture with my original post! Teeny tiny little thing that sits on a drive motor; I've attached a picture of where it goes to this post. It sound like we are doing the same thing to our AppleCD SC drive; I just got finished replacing all of the caps on the...

    Drive gear needed for an AppleCD SC

    Hello everyone! I've been working on restoring an AppleCD SC external scsi drive and I've hit a snag. Long and short of it, the eject/drive intake does not work. And the reason is that the drive gear on the eject/intake motor is cracked. It is a small, 4.4mm 12 tooth nylon gear. I've...

    Interware Booster 30-50F

    So I've been browsing/buying Mac stuff on Yahoo Japan for over a year now, and I have to say it is amazing how much old Mac stuff is routinely for sale on it!  My latest item that I bought is this:  an Interware 68030 accelerator, with the original box.....for only $100!  Well, at least that was...

    Interware device software

    @Alex- Thanks, that was the driver!  It is indeed nice to have the ability to use this card to it's fullest potential.  Here  are a few s hots of it running at 1024x768:

    My screen is blue (Radius Pivot SE/30)

    Hey @Bendix!     All I did was take the Red pin-which is position 2 on the board connector, and the Green pin, which is position 5 on the board connector (Counting off from right to left in this picture) and connected them to the Red pin on the VGA connector (which is pin one) and the Green pin...

    My screen is blue (Radius Pivot SE/30)

    I currently own two of these cards and I wondered, what would happen if you populate the other memory slots?  So I tracked down some Micron 24-pin memory chips on eBay, and.....voila!  For your extra memory (and money), you get a glorious 16 shades of grey!   I was hoping for 256, but I guess 16...

    More Video Card probems-Micron Xceed 306

    I tested out the 574 chips and found one that had some odd resistance readings on one of the inputs.  So i bought some new old stock SN74ALS574BN chips, and when I finally got them in on Saturday, I soldered one in place of the one I thought was bad.  Unfortunately, it didn't work :( The...

    AppleCD 600e not quite working with Perfoma 577

    Funny seeing this this-I just got done recapping one of my Apple CD 300's!  Listening to a Led Zeppelin CD with it right now.  With mine, the caps were so bad that electrolytic goop was underneath and around each one that I took off of the board.    I second @superjer2000-a good recapp is...

    More Video Card probems-Micron Xceed 306

    Hello everyone,     As I sit here in my electronics room/Zoom office, I figured I'd ask a question.  I have a Micron Xceed 306 video card that I bought off of eBay about a month ago.  The good news is that it somewhat works; but that's the bad news as well!       Half of the displayed video...
