    CF Card in a Blue G3

    I used one of those janky ebay CF>IDE adapters in my B&W, with a bit of finagling. It wouldn't work set to master or slave, but CS worked. It's on the primary IDE by itself and a DVDRW is on the secondary IDE by itself. DVDRW is set to CS as well. I was able to install Jaguar & Tiger from CD no...

    What can cause an external superdrive to fail?

    hmm, I put my superdrive into an 800k housing too, and you know what? the SE it came from won't boot with it connected externally. I doubt it but maybe the cable in the housing is wired differently than the internal connector? Strange coincidence.

    Mini Quadra & AppleColo(u)r Display

    I added 2 additional models to the quadra files based on a twitter comment, I present the iici version along with it's button insert! Uses the same lid and fan holder as the q700 model. https://www.dropbox.com/s/tgif4inyhqzsggj/MicroQuadra700.zip?dl=0

    Internal floppy drive on iMac G3 - Firmware downgrade

    Just thought about this thread watching the latest Computer Clan video - and it looks like the prototype G3 imac doesn't have the unpopulated floppy pins, but does have and ADB connector on board Thought it was funny that they added the floppy port on a later revision if it indeed was not there. :)

    Macintosh SE Squirrel Cage Fan to 60mm Boxer Fan Upgrades

    What size fan is this for? 80mm? I might give it a shot. My SE has a 80mm fan and part of a PC PSU shell for a mounting bracket. Kind of shotty looking on the inside. I also (regretably) removed the shroud from the back case

    Reverse Engineering the Macintosh Plus PCB

    Doesn't seem like there is much room for additions on the board layout, but I'd imagine baking in a modified mac plus> PS/2 keyboard adapter (http://www.synack.net/~bbraun/mackbd/index.html thanks to @bbraun) would be a welcome addition!

    3D-Printed Objects

    they should hold it together! It’s not the most snug fit but it worked when I printed them! That looks awesome! I am glad to see the mounting holes worked! I didn’t have a chance to reprint after adding them (i drilled mine)

    3D-Printed Objects

    that's amazing!! I still haven't figured out a solution to keep the lid on if you stand it vertically, mine are spray painted since I had blue/black/red filament, but I also have this little stand (with feets!) that can help too. I thought about hot gluing magnets inside but haven't gotten...

    I never knew you couldn't download the models from P3D because I don't have a pro account! :-O Thanks to @Aladds for pointing this out! Here are the STL files in a zip file, also linked to my drop box in case this upload isn't allowed...

    SE FTP issues

    Hello! My Macintosh SE has a Farallon EtherMac SE card in it. This installation of System 7 has been used on and off for about 8 years, with no hardware changes. I have 4 MB of RAM installed, running 7.0.1 . I have used Fetch 2.1.2 many times in the past to download or upload files to my...

    Classic Restore

    Here’s a bad pic of a hard to reach spot... but here is a color comparison of how the white/gray putty looks dried compared to the yellowed front of an internal zip drive.
