  2. I'll charge up the DSLR tonight and measure/photo tomorrow - And first dibs if you want to take it (I'd like the space back too!) Actually it might be neat to have some good photos of the boxes (Plus was my first, and was unfortunately thrown out rather recently)
  3. I do, and oddly enough I was looking at it today wondering what to do with it. I do not have any of the booklets but the packing/outside is pretty good for 30 years old. I would even let you have it if you really wanted it (i'm near st cloud, mn, but come down every few months to the cities). Original boxes(outside of software) are not very interesting to me. I could also take some high res pictures of each side and insides. Let me know.
  4. Nice! I may have to add this board on my next mouser order. Looks like you need an external PSU to power the floppy too, but still great to see 800k getting some attention from a project like this. Would 1.44 mac disks work too? Or are they just read the same as PC disks in FluxEngine?
  5. Not exactly like this - but I was told a broken SE/30 had "$250 worth of gold in it if he recycled it" - so it's an oddly common idea people have. I guess just keep cool - she's going through a tough time/loss in her life and seems to feel like people are out to get her. (which it sounds like you're doing). EDIT: it sound like you're keeping your cool, not out to get her! wording!) I wondered what someone would do with my stash once I'm gone - hopefully my kids each take a few to play some games on, but the nostalgia train will be gone.
  6. At this time... I can not say. But I hope for one more trip in the near future.
  7. Went for an Aaui and scsi cable, came out with this....
  8. Nice! Never head of that before. Will give it a try, seems trivial. One thing I noticed looking at this board is that there are a lot of surface mount resistors/plastics around the caps. I'll need to be very careful when removing the caps with the hot air not to accidentally blow them away/burn them.
  9. Today I picked up an LCIII with a 14" monitor and StyleWriter II. Caps leaking all over but no battery explosion. Always liked the LC series, our school had a bunch.
  10. Why is that? I've the book (though of course old) specifically says to adjust it. Just wondering as I did adjust it

  12. Yes, my classic isn't open right now but it's right in the middle of the board - use a plastic or wooden tool to adjust. I had to do this as well on mine after recapping. I think the one of the old books has a photo/location, let me look.
  13. I have no PRAM batteries in any of my 9" macs and all boot fine (sans accurate time - only Mac I know of that is picky about the PRAM battery and booting is the 6100 series. It sounds more like unstable voltage at first glance - do you have a multi meter you can check it with? If you tested the analog board without load it may be unstable with - so check it at the floppy port with load.
  14. Hi all, I found a set of ROM chips - I think they came from a Mac Plus - I vaguely remember (I was probably 5-6 years old) my Dad pulling some ROM chips out and doing some sort of upgrade to our Plus. I know he did upgrade to 2.5mb of RAM, not sure what else. I've also included a photo of the chips currently in the Plus. Quick search on these part numbers didn't turn up much. I recently picked up a 512k, was wondering if they are "Plus" roms, if I could upgrade it potentially. A photo of the current chips in the Mac Plus T
  15. Thanks for the recommendation - I do have a lead on a replacement front bezel from someone here. I may try it this too, but cosmetic is not my strong suite. Lift a pad, break a trace, no problem. This is right on the front sticking out like a wart. I did try to "push" it back in, but it's very hard, would need a clamp to put enough pressure to push it back in I think (which may break something else If someone did have an example of a cosmetic fix in a visible area like this I'd love to learn more though.
  16. TIL the screws for the screen are a different length. Just had a pile of them and grabbed the wrong one, went in a bit hard but backed out, compared to another (wrong one) and thought maybe the plastic was stripped on the inside. I was wrong. Pretty disheartening since this is really not repairable after repairing everything else. Ugh.
  17. Picked up a working 512k, local pick-up from eBay. Floppy needs work, and screen needs adjustments. Earliest machine in my collection. Also since I was close stopped by micro center and got a Pi4.
