    Solid State Drive for G3?

    This should work okay: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016498CK0/ It has screws on the bottom, which some 2.5 to 3.5 adapters tend not to.

    Solid State Drive for G3?

    OWC sells PATA SSD drives, but they carry a premium, or you can get PATA to mSATA/m.2 SATA adapters from eBay/Amazon and make your own. You will need to get proper 2.5 to 3.5 adapters with IDE pin adapter for the ribbon, but those are readily available too.

    Daystar Universal PowerCache P33 in SE/30

    The one I posted on Archive is from August 1991, and the one you just scanned is from April 1992. The most up-to-date Universal Manual I have is from March 1993 that covers IIvx, IIvi, Performa 400 & 600 as well. I plan to scan that one too for Archive soon. I also got a Cache exclusive manual dated from November 1992 that covers all the non PowerCache cards.

    Rear I/O panel for "Mystic" CC?

    Not as refined as the Retro ShoopBox one, but this might do the trick: https://www.ebay.com/itm/383136803765
  6. Excellent news! Glad it was just a cable and not a busted display. Enjoy the glory of pivoting.
  7. The cable is the wild card here, custom cable based on the link is the way to go as its how the product worked.
  8. Looked at the manual, lists DB-9 and DB-15 cables as options for FDP & Pivot cards. I should dig out the monitor out of storage.
  9. My greyscale pivot has the HD15 port too, and it was a Mac product. It came with a HD15 to DB15 cable.
  10. SoftPivot 3.2.1 only had official support until System 7.5.1. If you can try booting off a disc in 7.1 and soft pivot to see if it works. You can ways get the dedicated nubus card too.
  11. Did you try installing SoftPivot?

    IIci with a surprise inside!

    Brilliant find! Last year I lucked into a similar IIci and the same Sonnet Presto & PAS16. Here are the Sonnet drivers.
  13. @elemenoh The internal were upgraded to the modern board. I wanted to keep the external look original. I got a complete IIgs setup right at the same time so I have not spent enough time with the IIe.
  14. I had a similar problem with mine, but I just got it rebuilt: https://www.reactivemicro.com/product-category/power_supply/

    Are there any Macintosh vendors left?

    Ecommerce did more to kill the local computer shops than NAFTA which actually increased exports. The old business models were not tenable and manufactures skipped resellers and went direct to consumer. Let's not forget the 800 ton gorilla in the room... Amazon disrupted everything and continues to do so. Apple just saw the tea leaves before most and adapted their model in the late 90s.
