  1. Wow, absolutely incredible effort! Can't wait to build one!
  2. Also can confirm, the 110v supply is 100% compatible and will generate less heat in my experience which can only be a good thing.
  3. Yes, male solder cup connectors only. I was quoted a minimum of $25K to do the female board mount version...
  4. Is there any existing board layout for a 30pin simm? I'm not sure if it's just me, but I've started encountering a larger number of failing simms these days. I'm also noticing the prices starting to creep up on ebay for larger modules. It's to the point where I think it's worthwhile to try to fix them. I have a simm tester, but no adapter for just SOJ chips. I'm thinking to design some boards with sockets (which I already have obtained) on them to test individual chips from failed modules to use as replacements. Any thoughts?
  5. It’s working well for me with the exception of my mouse. The new version was supposed to have fixed it, but I still have issues where I have to unplug/replug it. Other than that once you install an ssd the mini is the perfect os 9 machine and is small enough to live on my desk full time.
  6. Have you tried some contact cleaner on the crt pins?
  7. I would say leave it intact and don’t do anything you can’t reverse on this one. In person I don’t think its quite as distracting as it shows in images. Really glad you’re happy with everything!
  8. Yeah, it was really common to reuse the os disk because blanks were so expensive. Unfortunately the canon MO mechanism is custom to these and their own branded version of the drive. Further the next optical encoding was done in hardware on a custom ASIC so even the canon drives sharing the mechanism are no help. Long story short you’ll need a revived drive in a cube to read them.
  9. That was an amazing deal! What MO disks came with it?
  10. You'll want to recap that "new" logic board as well...
  11. You can access over serial but the problem on the NeXT is that this option is not configured by default. You need to be able to boot into the machine to enable it which limits the usefulness...
  12. I think I got my stash from a s-100 RAM board. If you are patient you can probably find one cheap.
