    2. Mac II, Quadra & Centris

      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • I have some screws, I also have a keyboard and mouse,  but your going to want to recap the motherboard and tuner board thats connected before you go buying too much stuff for it.  I have repaired a few, but it is the same vintage as color classics and LC's so the capacitors are going to be bad on the motherboard.
    • Haha nice!  I was watching that. Glad someone here got it! Listing said it woul sometimes have boot issues, but was likely a dead clock battery. Let us know if that was the case.
    • Here skip to 4:16 the part he is moving is not moving for me http://youtu.be/OCPcc2LiBc
    • Ok, it's all back together! Here's what the front looked like before cleaning and retrobrite:   o   And here is the final result:     Retrobrite notes: Cleaned with Dawn dishwasher detergent, water, and a soft toothbrush Scrubbed marks off with a wet paper towel and baking soda Thoroughly painted with Salon Care 30-Proof Hydrogen Peroxide Cream, wrapped in plastic wrap Placed under a CFL "Lizard" UV light for ~10 hours (room temp, no extra heat just the CFL) Rinsed, reapplied cream and rewapped Exposed for another 8 hours  Notice that the Apple logo was unaffected. I'm super happy with it! It's humming away on my desk with AfterDark running right now, so cool. Despite having a 1.44 MB floppy drive, getting files to it is a bit of a pain. Disk images are easy, I can just write those with DD in the Terminal in my Touchbar MacBook Pro. Individual files have to be moved over to my iMac G3 running OS X 10.4.   Plans for it: 4 MB of RAM SCSI2SD if/when the hdd fails Figure out some "cheap networking", either over serial or with a 56k dialup server on a Raspberry Pi
    • I carefully detached the springs to clean the top tray yes.  I reattached them to see if it would now work with the clean top tray but it was still stuck like glue and it refused to reject even with the gear box out. The bottom tray with the manual eject lever slides fine tough so i almost positive its the top tray. And yes the top tray is straight.
