    86/9600 and G3 Case Specs

    The drive bezels are interchangeable. But despite the similar appearance few other external panels are interchangeable.

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    @PotatoFi wow, that’s looking good! Can’t wait to see the update.

    Comments: I wish I had more money to do so many projects.

    Finally found that numeric trackball for 128k/plus

    Maybe it was just a badly worded auction listing as it didn't use keywords for 128k, 512k, etc. I'm going to post mine on eBay for $150, if it sells I will let you know that you didn't over pay

    Anything special about those? Last one I saw sold for $1. I have one I would sell if it’s really worth $100 plus.

    ABD Keyboard and Mouse Options?

    BMOW has Wombat which I think allows both directions of USB to ADB. I like the wedge mouse. I am, however, bias since I am making a custom case for it, but still it’s great and period correct. The ADB mouse II (teardrop) was ergonomically the most comfortable.

    Farallon ETHERMAC LC NSC w/NuBus drivers in the SE/30 PDS?

    @Trash80toHP_Mini the map looked good to me. Are you saying you tested the wire wrap board and it gave the Simasimac? That little adapter board looked really interesting. Was that something like SE>LC?

    @Trash80toHP_Mini do you want me to do the exact same thing as last time on this file?

    Very excited about my $30 vintage Mac haul today!

    Wow, fantastic find! I think there is a large enclosed 40ft container that locally allows people to drop off stuff for free recycling. I wonder if I should venture over and see what is in there. I know you probably should not take stuff from there, but it would be fun to see.

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    Printing in sections and then bonding is a good option. For my first case prototype I printed the rear bucket in 4 sections then bonded them together and it worked quite well given the limited print area.

    Is an inverter bi-directional: 74LS04 specifically?

    Yeah I figured, that would require all new software even if PDS stuff was figured out.

    @Trash80toHP_Mini do you know how cool it would be to have a IIe Card work in an SE/30?!

    If anyone needs an extra card for testing, please let me know.

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    The drive enclosure should arrive there by the end of the week, don't worry guys . I agree that a scale prototype would be best. Once it is refined enough and if the OP wants, I will have a SLA clear printed case produced.

    Clear top for hard disk

    Sorry for my late response. I'm not sure where the issue originated but please accept my apologies if I have done anything wrong. I really felt that the platter cover was so highly related to the hard drive case (being able to see through both!) that I thought it belonged there. Then the OP seemed upset so I wanted to avoid clogging his post with something he didn't want. No offense intended. We all have the same goals, to make great things happen

    @Trash80toHP_Mini so sorry it took so long to do the double check. Everything I could check and felt matched was highlighted in the respective colors. Everything passed, no errors detected.

    Strange SE/30 Card

    I starting going through some of the many SE/30s I ordered for fitment testing today (finally). And discovered a strange card that had Ethernet and color monitor connector. I opened it up and it’s a Radius 030 Pivit Color Card, lacking extra memory (worth maxing out?). But it has a card below it that looks like it provides the pass-though and Ethernet in one card... Anyone ever see this combo before? on a related note the anode cap on the monitor of the machine appears to be leaking. Anyone see that before? Nothing shows up on the screen when powered. Just trying to diagnose the issue.

    Thank you for posting this, I'm certain others will have the same issues.

    @Trash80toHP_Mini thanks for the map and the explanation, I will examine it closer tomorrow and give it a good study to make sure I am fully able to check it out.

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    @PotatoFi I don't have a caliper handy, unfortunately. I think if packaged properly, sending one would be the best option. I'd be happy to cover @CC_333's postage and packing costs to make that happen. If I have one I'm sure its buried right now. @Cory5412 yes, if you could start a new topic "Custom Clear Hard Drive Lids" I would appreciate it to help clean up this thread. Thanks @Trash80toHP_Mini for the idea!

    Clear top for hard disk

    @Trash80toHP_Mini That type of drive top wouldn't be possible to laser cut, but other options might be possible. I was thinking the MiniScribe drives would be super easy to model, cut, and install. @PotatoFi Sorry about the thread hijacking! Sometimes, I get a bit carried away with projects. We sent our chat to PM already. If you do decide you need an HD SC to model, please let me know and I'll make sure that happens for you.

    I actually just ordered one of those AUGAT connectors for the 74LS04 chips I have. This way if we make progress with the SE/30 I can working wrapping the SE version. Looking forward to seeing what happens by this weekend

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    Sure, send me a PM with your info and I'll have one sent your way. If you have an SE or SE/30 you should be able to use it as reference. As far as thickness, it would have to be strong enough to insert the coupler and not crack, but thin enough to be screwed in. Other than that, thickness shouldn't matter much. We've made some great strides with the ProtoCahce+LC PDS Conversion idea thus far thanks to Bolle and Trash80, and Ants provided some good feedback for making it WiFi in the future too. That's whats great about projects like this, it brings everyone together.

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    Yeah, two holes for the screws and the main hole in the middle, probably the easiest think to design and cut. One sheet of acrylic could make a ton of these little parts. In the future I will see about making one with two WiFi antennas, but that's a bit far along. If you want I can send you one of these couplers to take a look at?

    3D Print Replica HD 20 SC Enclosure?

    Yeah, it should be straightforward I don’t have any software to create it but if it’s simple for you maybe we can work something out. Here is the tricky part it would actually just be a square to accommodate this coupler, that little clip would be the only hard part but really it should be decent. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Monoprice-8P8C-RJ45-Cat6-Inline-Coupler-Type-Keystone-Jack-White/40501021?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=1884&adid=22222222228028185259&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=m&wl3=60058075809&wl4=pla-94244636649&wl5=9016200&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=113139629&wl11=online&wl12=40501021&wl13=&veh=sem&gclid=EAIaIQobChMItpet8MX44QIVT7jACh24BQu9EAQYBCABEgKWpPD_BwE
