Cheap Classic

I picked up a cheap spares/repair Classic off ebay which has clearly seen better days. I did not need another Classic. I did not need another Mac. But none of that matters, it needed saving. I already know the CRT neck is smashed but the logic board/analog board are supposed to be "ok".

Some quick photos... looks like it's going to be a good challenge.

The yellow marking on the top that says SNC = South Nottingham College, so this belonged to them at some point. I wonder if they want it back. :p

Making progress...

Last tested in 1995, so it must be fine, right?

Ah, maybe not...

Thankfully this wasn't a surprise - I bought it knowing it had a damaged CRT.
