    Unexpected ewaste find: MicroQue PDS4/Top Hat. Quad LC PDS Adapter!

    @olePigeon I wish I was, I’m here in the Midwest. Appreciate the offer though! To be fair, I probably don’t need more projects. It’s like some kind of addition.

    MacMemory MaxSave

    I can honestly say that I’ve never seen one of these. I’m curious what kind of implementation it might be. Engineers were really crafty back then due to their limited resources, so some kind of hybrid solution would make sense.

    PLEASE post photos once it arrives. I’m very curious of the structure on this upgrade.

    My newly arrived LC575...

    Using a expanding foam method like this with the tube face down should remove much, but certainly not all, of the risk.  But yes, regardless of the feedback it can still hurt sellers.  If I recall correctly, eBay always changes things, but last I recall late shipments will decrease top rated...

    iMac G3 - Capacitior List?

    I have a 700mhz iMac G3 that I'm looking to see if a capacitor list exists so that I can order and match capacitors.  Can any direct me to where such a list might exist?

    Reverse Engineering the Macintosh SE PCB & Custom Chips for 1:1 reproduction

    I just discovered male PLCC 84 adapters that might have saved a fair bit of trouble. Those could be good for building a PCB in the future though.    Does anyone know a “cheap” logic analyzer that has at least 84 channels and that a novice like me can capture/store data and sent to someone more...

    Macintosh TV Logic Board, Analog Board, and Tuner Card - Capacitor List

    Because I was having trouble finding Macintosh TV capacitor lists and lack the fine SMD soldering skills, I had @ymk assist me with the replacements.  He offers recapping services on eBay.  For those that don't know he also created the MacSD which has some really great features that the SCSI2SD...

    Reverse Engineering the Macintosh SE PCB & Custom Chips for 1:1 reproduction

    Some good news, despite my failures of desoldering (lesson learned), @ymk assisted me in repairing the issues with the board and correcting the breakout issues.  Now, we have a fully functional board with breakout.  @ScutBoy was kind enough to lend his Brainstorm system (don't worry I used my...

    My first “conquest” post

    So this is my first “conquest” post, though I’ve never really liked the term as it implies a loser is involved in a deal, but I still like the idea of sharing finds. Our very own @ScutBoy hooked me with some awesome gear including ProFile drives. I finally decided to set up my Apple III after...

    Reverse Engineering the Macintosh SE PCB & Custom Chips for 1:1 reproduction

    I’ve soldered together the breakout board it was quite tedious and I put a bit too much solder in the extension pins as I couldn’t get them to stay very well. I know everything looks like a very amateurish job but it works. I could have slowed things down to look better but had limited time.   ...
