  1. The school I work at has purchased a 3D printer that has a 10"w x 10"d x20"h (254mm x 254mm x 508mm) print area. That's big enough to print a compact Mac bezel (diagonally at least). 128k, 512kx, Plus, SE/x, Classic, and even the Color Classic should all be do-able. Immediate applications that come to mind - customized floppy openings for different media (Zip/Jaz drives, optical drives, Twiggy drives, SD cards), customized monitor openings and interior mounting lugs for for flat screens, simple replacement of broken bezels, Macquaria and Macsks, even whole new esthetic takes on the front
  2. 1/ Did you have any left over or bequeathed to you from back in the day? About 4 Mac 512s that I inherited from the school that bought them new in the late 80s. I hadn't bought many since the early 2000s, until the universe messed with me a few months ago and a $50 Plus in original box showed up at the recycle joint. 2/ When you got the bug and set out to acquire one, which model was it? I ordered 3 SEs and one SE/30 ("Osiris"), all with network cards, from a usenet post back in the mid 90s. $700 ($150x3 + $250) 3/ After you started collecting, how many refugees were si
  3. If you have a 520 available and easy, go get it. An external SCSI CD-ROM (although an Ethernet card would be a better $20 investment) and a 575 LoBo will do what you want to do until you can trade up to a full 57x later
  4. If you have a pre OS X machine, you can Get Info about the app, select the icon in the upper left corner and command-C copy it, then paste it into your image-editor of choice.
  5. Whoops. Misremembered what this thread was about. Nevermind. Sorry.
  6. They're back (not my auction), but the increase of rarity has had an effect, of course.
  7. There are occasionally 9" B/W POS SVGA CRT monitors on eBay that fit nicely in a Classic case. F'rinstance They fit and look much much more stock than any flatscreen ever will, but they are limited by lack-of-color and resolution (800x600 max).
  8. You should go back and get the other SEs. Then you'll have plenty of parts for a FrankenMac SE.
  9. Use the highest % isopropyl alcohol you can get. If it's actually caked-on muddy, you might want to start with distilled water, followed by the alcohol to speed drying
  10. The Classic and Classic II both had auto-inject, so if you mate an auto-inject with the 605 board (which works), your floppy will be fine. Keep the stock Classic floppy drive in there, and you won't have any chassis issues. Trying to put a manual-inject in the Classic chassis could also work with some shimming/offsetting/angling. It'd be easier to go with the floppy drive that was designed for the case/chassis.
  11. Yes you can. LCIIs and LCIIIs came with both/either without changing anything about the logic board. Further, I've accidentally switched them and wondered why floppies wouldn't fit in bezels right!
  12. It is a 10" POS monitor, so it just looks like a regular (but tiny) CRT computer monitor from the 90s. It's a Fujitsu; Type No: PB600441, P/N:80602101, manufactured by Action Electronics Co. LTD in Taiwan in April 2000. It has a lot of Dutch (or possibly Afrikaans) writing on stickers on it, so there's that... A previous auction where they were sold (in 2013-14) was titled "ebay.com/itm/New-10-Fujitsu-CRT-SVGA-Color-Monitor-1024-x-768-Resolution-Type-PB60044" As I mentioned, the tube might fit if you shaved the bezel wider, but it is 1 7/8" (48mm) too deep to fit in the Classic buck
  13. There used to be a really nicely illustrated thread on here about me putting at first a 605 (which fits perfectly in a Classic if you remove the fan shroud, you don't even have to turn it in sideways) and then a 575 (which is the same dimensions as a CC board, which in turn was clearly designed to fit in the (non-Color) Classic chassis) in it. The point was to have it be a c.1994 Classic III (I liked the name "Quadra Classic") with the manual inject floppy opening pout surgically added. Unfortunately the forum changed software in '14, the pictures went missing, and the thread is pretty useles
