    Apple eMac

    Ah nevermind... For some reason it wouldn't take my 10.2 disc. Upgraded to 1gb of ram and replaced the battery. Putting 10.4 on it :)

    So much for trying to make space.... But for $15 I couldn't pass it up.

    SE/30 nothing happens when powered on

    FOUND OUR PROBLEM! thanks to reading the thread posted by @techknight I did some poking around and sure enough, L14 is completely missing! Gonna grab that off the other SE/30 board and see if I can get this one fired up.  im also missing c74 and r35 (though r35 looks like it was never there...

    SE/30 nothing happens when powered on

    Yes it’s missing quite a few components. Not too worried about that.  After cleaning  off most of the garbage the traces are actually not as bad as I expected. It’s still got a long way to go but it’s getting there. At the moment I actually have more hope for that board than the other one lol.

    Reviving a Macintosh Plus.

    Got this one from Johnnya101. Had only a vertical line on the screen.  I snapped the connector on the red wire so I had to replace that... the rest was pretty straightforward. Just used a solder-sucker and got rid of the old stuff around the problem areas and re-soldered.

    SE/30 nothing happens when powered on

    There isn’t much else to explain except that literally nothing happens when powered on. I know the analog board and crt are good because I tested it with another board.  Picture of the board can be seen below.  Where  do I start? I’m sure even if the caps were bad it would do *something*

    2011 iMac

    Not sure how I end  up with such nice items for free. Some friends were getting rid of it and knew that I collected such things, but man I've been using it as my daily machine now! Upgrade to 8gb and a nice SSD and it should last a few more years.

    Apple Watch fixer-upper

    Only $40! Had all the goodies (box, plastic container for the watch, documentation, charger). Just needs a new display but is fully functional including force touch. Works just fine with a protective case to uhh.... keep it together.

    Boxed iMac G4 + PowerBook 1400CS

    This is part 2 of a haul from the same person. They have graciously donated these items to my collection free of charge.  The first two items were a PowerMac 7200/75 and a PowerMac g4. The second two items: a powerbook 1400cs/166 with 48mb ram and last east but certainly not least, a boxed...
