    AllMacs IIsi recap

    Is all Macs the one in Florida? Are you happy with the work overall? I have an SE/30, a IIsi, an LCII that need recapping. I don't have the equipment or the skill to do this so I'm looking for a source.

    Radius Rocket!

    I just got the 25i for my Mac II. Now just need a 24bit card for it.

    Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, ThunderCards... HO!

    I just got a Thunder II GX v 3.0.0 from Operator Headgap for $25. Not sure if it's 1152 or the 1360 but for $25 who cares?

    Fitting a SCSI2SD in a 68k Mac

    Thanks Mos, I'm going to put my SCSI2SD on my Plus as well. I'll be booting 6.0.7 though. I wonder how big a partition I can get?

    Can someone post a pic of a Mac II drive sled?

    I did, I just wanted a picture so if I ran across one on ebay. It's the same sled for all the double wide Mac II series.
  8. I just picked up a sweet Mac II from pathw that needs a hard drive sled. I could fashion one from sheet metal or just print one but I'm trying to restore everything to original. I just wanna know what the original looked like. Probably the same sled as the IIx and the IIfx. Thanks

    512k Floppy Drive won't eject

    Usually I spray WD40 in a sandwich bag and dip a small paint brush and brush it on. Then I get no overspray. I'll mess with it this weekend.

    0F0004 error on 128k

    I have a 400k floppy from a 512k that needs restoration. I'll clean and re-lube that one first, then if it works I'll swap the floppy drives and see if I can boot with either one of them. I need to mess with my Floppy EMU and figure out how to boot with that. If I can figure that out, I can bypass the floppy and determine if it's a floppy problem or a logic board/RAM problem.

    512k Floppy Drive won't eject

    Awesome, thanks! I'll work on it this weekend. I have the 128k I got from Dog_Cow that is next for restoration.

    0F0004 error on 128k

    I'm reviving and restoring a 128k. When I boot from a floppy, I got a 0F0064 error after reading the floppy and giving a smily face. I assumed the floppy was bad so I tried a few more and got the same thing. Then I read that the 128 would only boot from System 3.2. So pulled out a system 1.1 disk from my 512k and it gave me a 0F0004 error and ejected after the smily face. I tried booting from my Floppy EMU but it wouldn't even recognize it in floppy or hard drive mode. I tried it plugged into the back and directly into the internal floppy port. Now I get a consistent 0F0004 error no matter what floppy I try. Not sure what to try next to get it booted, any ideas?

    512k Floppy Drive won't eject

    I have a 512k that I'm restoring and the floppy reads fine but will not eject. When I manually eject with a paper clip, the disk gets stuck and won't come out. So I cracked the case and removed the drive and carefully removed the disk without damaging it. When I manually push the eject tab, the drive pops upward but does not propel the disk forward. Not sure if I can (or want to) fix it if I can find a good working one. If one of you guys fixes stuff like this, we could make a deal. I'm assuming it's a 400k drive since it came out of a 512k. Here's pics:

    For Americans, Amazon has "Cif Cleaner". I think it's the same thing. The bottle looks the same.
