    Scored a nice Apple coffee cup

    Got these at goodwill the other day. Not bad for a buck each. Both look brand new. The BAT1 cup is from Motorola. BAT1 was the Bump, Assembly, and Test facility that Moto built in Austin back in the '90's.

    Lisa Keyboard Foam Foil Pads Replaced.

    So this old Lisa KB only barely worked if you really banged the keys. It's in pretty good shape otherwise for being 38 years old. I finally got some new foam pads and replaced the old ones. The old pads literally disintegrated into dust when I popped them out. I had to do it over a trashcan to...

    IIci with a Radius bonus!

    Hey Ya'll.  I've been busy doing stuff for a while. Anyway, in the course of my recent travels I picked up this IIci and it came with a surprise... A 33 Mhz Radius Rocket card!  A card that I put in it 20+ years ago and completely forgot about. So the story on this IIci is it belonged to a...

    Weird problem with my Mac Plus

    So I replaced most of the caps on a Plus analog board today. I say most because I screwed up and didn't order all the caps I needed. But it was enough for the moment. I also re-geared the floppy drive while I was there. So I put the system back together and booted it from a floppy. It came up...

    Recently Acquired Items

    I'm trying to slim down but I guess two steps forward one step back. I found a guy selling a bunch of stuff locally. He had the entire guts of a Plus and this HD20SC, two external floppies, an ImageWriter II, and associated peripherals & manuals. Although very little software. He told me...

    ID Mac Plus 030 upgrade card

    From the more-stuff-I've-had-so-long-I-forgot-I-had-it category... So while digging in the garage I found several spare compact mac boards. Among them was a Plus board with this unknown (to me) '030 upgrade card. It looks like it requires extra power. It appears to be a 25Mhz '030. (I didn't...

    ID PB3400 memory card

    I'm pretty sure this is a 64mb card. Looking for confirmation. Chips are 4mb Mitsubishi. Anyone seen this brand module before? Thanks,

    Revived a Powerbook 520c

    So while I'm waiting for new caps to come in for the Fat Mac with the Hyperdrive I thought I'd dust this off and see if it worked. PowerBook 520c "BlackBird" I picked this up years and years ago and literally never did a thing with it. It's just been in a box in the garage for about 12 years...

    MDD Dual G4 ATX Power Supply swap

    Here's a project I did a while back. ATX power supply in a MDD Dual 1.25 G4. This is the FW800 model that won't boot OS9. I bought this system new back in '03 with the intention of overclocking it to 1.42 but I never got around to it. (I OC'ed a couple 1.25's at work with no problem.) Anyway...

    Motorola Marco now working!

    My Newton clone lives again! Well, I spoke too soon when I replied in to the Newton documentary thread when I said my Marco didn't work. My problem was lack of patience... Long story not-so-short, about 15 years ago I was given this Marco. It came with no power supply, nothing except the...

    Apple PowerCD "portable" CD ROM drive

    I found this while I was digging around in the garage. Apple PowerCD circa 1994. I thought I post a few pix since ya'll like the old stuff. Very cool design, ultimately not that useful.

    Fat Mac with HyperDrive revived!

    After the recent revival of my Lisa 2/5 I decided to drag out the Mac512K with the General Computer HyperDrive. I picked this up at Goodwill back in the '90's. (1996 if I can believe the file dates on the HD. That's all I have to go on.) I think I paid $120 for it maybe. (That may be what paid...

    Howdy! So I have this old Lisa 2/5....

    Hello! So I have this old Sun Remarketing Lisa 2/5 with a 400K floppy that I've had for about 20 years. It's got a 5 meg Profile drive that it boots from that's been rebuilt at least one time in its past. I don't think the Profile PS or HD are original to the case. It's got a Sun20 hard...
