    Interesting. I guess it being a much newer build helps. It’s great you’ve been able to get use out of it, looks really cool. I’m still hoping to build something in the garden for this purpose so I can get soldering again.

    External ZuluSCSI and SCSI2D collides with chassi

    Remove the bottom part of the case and it will then fit. That will leave some pins exposed so just be careful with it. Thats how I’ve been using my external SCSI2SD for a while now. Your modified solution is a good idea :)

    What sound is my SE/30 making??

    Analog board I think. Definitely worth going over your work again especially if it was OK before the recap.

    Durosity’s conquests and collection

    How cold does it get in your garage and how are you heating it? We just converted our garage into a room because it was so cold and unusable for anything else before. When I moved in a year ago, I was storing all my Macs there but they started to get damp/condensation in them over winter so I...

    I cannot stand the passive screens at all, active all the way for me.

    A little jealous, very nice. Looks like you've got a nice work space there, garage or workshop/out building?

    Battery bombed IIfx PSU repair

    A short / bad component somewhere. Test the diodes on the high voltage side. There are probably a few ATX based PSUs that would fit in the same enclosure.

    But that was from my CC II, remember? So that was haunted and my CC probably is too. We haven’t tried a parts swap with my CC yet.

    Lucky! The same for mine did not result in a working machine. I think my CC has a haunted analog board.

    Brittle Internal Plastics: 7x00 vs G3 Desktop

    It’s been done many times, but I like @demik’s G3 ATX build the best.

    Brittle Internal Plastics: 7x00 vs G3 Desktop

    Here’s a cursed thought. In 50 years time, all vintage Macs will live inside metal ATX cases. :devilish:

    Macintosh IIfx with ProNitron 80.21 V1.5

    Cap goo works in mysterious ways. Definitely make sure you replace all the can-style caps.

    Brittle Internal Plastics: 7x00 vs G3 Desktop

    They really vary. The only G3 desktop I had was not in great shape, the top case would not go back on properly anymore. All the beige plastics despite age/model suffer. The beige internal plastic on the iMac G3 is a prime example.

    Apple /// restoration

    That’s not too bad. A fully working Apple /// is worth a lot more than that.

    Blown fuse suggestions

    Oops sorry missed that pic. Basically +1 to what @bibilit said. The legs of the Egret chip are dirty and need to be cleaned. Also you should clean all other chips near caps thoroughly.

    Can you post some photos of your logic board please?

    Apple /// restoration

    Fair point, I hadn't thought about the stress on the board.

    Apple /// restoration

    Is there a legit reason to keep everything socketed these days? I guess stuff can still fail but it seems like it should be less likely?

    Apple /// restoration

    The problem is that the rust can go up the legs and inside the chip itself. I have no idea what chips were used on the Apple ///, but my guess is that most(all) of them are off the shelf and can hopefully be obtained still? That seems like a sensible approach to me. Eager to see the next update :)
