    mAcTX LC Boards

    I have been told that the original post got lost in a forum crash, so. Once again, here's the mAcTX LC KiCad project. Public domain, do whatever, yadda yadda; I just ask that you don't use the mAcTX name if you use this in your own project and don't sell for profit. This only covers the LC...

    ROM needed for an Asante MacCon+IIET

    Is it against the rules to ask for a ROM for a Nubus Ethernet card? The one in my MacCon+IIET catastrophically failed and the dump I took of it before it failed is a bad dump as it's 90% 00.

    At last, a IIfx

    So I was browsing eBay one night and I found a listing for a non-working/parts-only IIfx. Immediately snatched it up and got it in today! The case is trashed - lots of bent pieces, major scuffs, and it's even missing the top lid. I threw it all into my regular II's case and found out the soft...

    LC II - Second Floppy

    Anyone ever tried sticking in another pin header into the unpopulated pads on an LC II board? Just curious to know if the second floppy port is electrically connected at all.

    Proper replacement for C1 on 630-0102 analog board

    Hey all, I did a near complete recap of my 512ke's analog board, part number 630-0102. The only capacitor I did not replace was C1 - 50v, 3.3uf. While I have a brand-new replacement 50v 3.3uf cap in my parts order, it's a tiny 5mm radial instead of something much beefier like the 18mm original...

    512ke EMP blasting disks on cold boot?

    Just a little weird something I’ve noticed with my 512ke ever since swapping out the original 800k with a replacement 800k...   If I have my 512ke turned off and I insert a disk, then turn it on my boot disk ends up corrupted at the best and completely erased at the worst. I guess the solution...

    Just picked up a 512ke

    Literally a week after I found my 128, I found another great deal on a 512! Advertised as not working, I bought it because it was cheap and had something very special on the inside... Yep, MacSnap SCSI and 2MB RAM upgrade! Easy fixes on this one too - the entire analog board needed resoldering...

    Just picked up a 128k

    You never know what you’ll find when you’re browsing mislabeled items on eBay... Got a pretty good deal on this 128k! The only thing keeping it from booting was a single bad RAM chip which I removed and socketed. Now I’ve got it coming up to the missing disk screen! Unfortunately, the internal...

    Portable Trackball and Keyboard Pinout

    Hey all, I have a keyboard and trackball from a Portable. I've been reading the service documents and it says they're ADB in a 34-pin ribbon cable. Does anyone know the pinout of the ribbon? It'd be cool to use these with my desktop Macs.

    040 Recommendations?

    Hey all, what would you recommend as a decent 68040-native machine? I've got a Quadra 610 DOS Compatible that unfortunately the case breaks further if you even look at it funny; I'm probably going to part that system out and replace it with something. But with what? For obvious reasons I don't...

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    Hey all, just wanted to gauge community interest to see if anyone would be interested in an ATX to Mac 10-pin adapter board. I've got a IIsi with a dead power supply (surface mount caps got REALLY bad inside) and @Compgeke and I have been working on an adapter board that'll take any ATX power...

    [Mac II] SiClone no longer working?

    I recently picked up an early original Macintosh II which among other things came equipped with a SiClone Si3033 accelerator board. It's a two-part system with what looks to be a mostly passive board that houses the original 68020 and FPU and a second board that contains the 68030 and FPU. The...

    Mac SE FDHD - Repeated resetting on cold boot

    I picked up a Mac SE the other day (yes, that green SE) and it worked when I first got it but now has an issue on cold boot. See the attached video for a better idea, but basically when it's cold it will sort of start up, and then immediately power-cycle and it will do this until something warms...

    AAUI to Ethernet and System 7.6 - am I missing something?

    Hey all, I've got an old Quadra 610 DOS Compatible that I just finished repairing (needed new caps and a hard drive), and I'm trying to at least get it talking to my network. It's got an Asante FriendlyNet AAUI adapter which is plugged up to a 10/100 switch and it does recognize it as a 10mbit...
