    Rejuvenating plastics and/or 3D printable parts ?

    Hello, Is there some known way to 'rejuvenate' the plastic from the PCI-era Power Macintoshes ? Not for look, just to make them less brittle, they seem to break when you just look at them. Alternatively, is there some 3D-printable replacement parts or other solution available ? I'm looking at...

    Mac OS 7.1 drivers for USB 2.0 & FireWire 800

    @olePigeon No problem. I suspect that for A/ROSE and the Macintosh Coprocessor Platform, not many people know anything nowadays; it wasn't successful back then as it made for very expensive peripherals compared to more custom hardware. Third parties preferred to spend a bit more designing...

    3D-Printed Objects

    @Swolfington Quite an old request but just in case: the drawings for this part (Q800 CD bezel) are in the Developer Note for the Q800, as one of the foldout.

    Macintosh II Nubus Sadness

    @happymacunhappymac Indeed as @demik mentioned this seem to be an original, PAL-based Mac II and not the NuChip-based revision that Bomarc did the schematic for (the replacement circuit is zoomed on in photo 1971). The schematics and content of the (NuChip-replaced) circuit on your board would...

    Also Develop 04, the PDF is on vintageapple.org and the CD is on the Macintosh garden.

    Mac OS 7.1 drivers for USB 2.0 & FireWire 800

    @olePigeon Is there enough publicly available resources to do a new MCP device using A/ROSE ? You would need the kernel, the associated SDK to be able to implement the device-side of things, the MacOS extension, the associated SDK to be able to implement the host-side of things, all the...

    Reverse Engineering the Macintosh IIsi Logic Board

    @Trash80toHP_Mini The Bomarc schematics are my point in a way; they already exist to offer a purely 'visual' view. It might be better to have a 'nicer' view in a modern program, but it would be even better to add some semantic to the drawings by using a schematic-oriented tool. I'm not sure an...

    Reverse Engineering the Macintosh IIsi Logic Board

    Rather than a pure drawing program like Illustrator, might be worthwhile to redraw the schematics (e.g. from Bomarc) into a commonly available specialized piece of software like KiCad. Some of the components are already available as KiCad symbols from third-parties (e.g. the 68030 and 68882 are...

    SE/30 DiiMO accelerator cloning

    @mdeverhart Is it really necessary to _slow_ the signals? From the Atmel's datasheet for the G16V8, there's already a bit of variability there. XC9536XL in speed grade -10 will match the fastest of the two G16V8 speed grade, and will be at least as fast or faster on almost every parameters (/OE...

    SE/30 DiiMO accelerator cloning

    From my side, I wonder if we can leverage existing designs to create a 'modern' cache card for the IIci and/or other II-machines with PDS. With a lot of cache, as fast SRAMs are significantly cheaper now than they were then. And I assume no hard-to-find / vintage chips would be needed.

    SE/30 DiiMO accelerator cloning

    Would outputing something like that be useful? ISE seems OK with it for a XC9536XL (they are 3.3V but 5V-tolerant). module GAL16V8_U3 ( input CLK, input i2, input i3, input i4, input i5, input i6, input i7, input i8, input i9...

    SE/30 DiiMO accelerator cloning

    Have you found a solution for this ? Otherwise, I guess under the assumption "a=b" is combinatorial and "a:=b" is clocked, it should not be very hard to write an ad-hoc parser and generate a Verilog module for each GAL file. There would still be the need to connect them all as per the...

    MacSD - new SCSI SD card emulation tool

    I didn't succeed in installing NetBSD at all. Using the 'new' method (installer running in OS8), the un-tar'ing process quite quickly fails with an SCSI error. I've also tried the 'old' method, but I only have access to the first two IDs (due to ghosting) and an attempt to install went a bit...

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    I have a 3D printer so I only need the STL to make the brackets :-) However I'm in France, so shipping might be a problem. If that's not a deal-breaker, I could use at least two.

    Nubus Connectors

    Actually, neither of the two NuBus board I have on hand have 'mounting clips' on the connector it seems, though one has the plated hole on the PCB. So you may want to change 'Features' from 'Mounting Clips' to '-' if you need one without clips...

    Nubus Connectors

    The reference I have in eeschema for NuBusFPGA is 85003-0567 (or 85003-0177 with no fixing clip), it seems to be the right one to me but I haven't tried for real yet. They are not obsolete, unlike the -7005. No luck finding a document documenting the 85003 family and what all those suffixes...

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    @Compgeke Discovering this long after the fact, any chance of you making more, or sharing the design files with the community? (so we could make our own if you don't have the time/will to deal with this anymore). I have comatose IIci & IIvi that could use a replacement power supply for testing...

    MacSD - new SCSI SD card emulation tool

    I'll have to look more closely at the documents when the second one shows up then (current status being "Shipping Label Created, USPS Awaiting Item") :) I think it originally shipped with 1.0.0 or 1.0.1, I also tried after updating to 1.0.2 but got the same results. NetBSD is more likely to...

    MacSD - new SCSI SD card emulation tool

    @ymk What is the 'official' way of reporting bugs in the firmware? I'm trying to install NetBSD/mac68k on the MacSD in my Quadra650 (works fine, ordered a second one for a LCIII!), I discovered that MacSD seems to answer SCSI commands on two different SCSI LUN (0 and 1) for every defined SCSI...

    Yet Another Netatalk 2.2 Fork

    Then I can't help sorry; for me this settings enabled my Q650 to see and mount the share after I the same authentication error - but it's running 8.1 not 6.x. Edit: nice that it works for you now :)
