    Rubber feet

    I found these feet on eBay, but you can find similar products anywhere.
  2. Incredible to see those big, almost useless and power consuming monsters that can now be emulated with great ease on a simple Raspberry Pi. Nice to see how it has evolved...
  3. It was a kind of metallic dust type of dirt. I managed to clean the HD and the surface of the motor (which you can see on the pic...), and it's now fully operational. There's a garage database on the HD with many license numbers, details regarding car repairs etc... from 1991 till 1994. That explains the state of the SE when I got it...
  4. So you did replace the battery with a similar 523 type 4,5v and cleaned the contacts of the holder? Because it seems the battery doesn't do anything in your case.
  5. I got all the pictures in my gallery, but here a photo of the monitor before the treatment:
  6. Sometimes, cleaning the connectors on the PB of the harddisk can ensure that it works again. I did restore the HD of my SE: it was not seen by the system at all, but after a good cleaning (it was REALLY necessary after many years in a garage!!!) and just a little contact spray here and there, it was working again. It's a long shot and it may not help, but it worked for me....
  7. Btw: this lamp doesn't like to be switch on and off repetitively, that can cause a defect. So when you put it on for the first time, keep it on for 30 seconds or a minute before you put it off.
  8. That will shorten the lifespan of the lamp for sure! I think you should seek for a safer option as the lamp isn't cheap....
  9. I think the price wouldn't differ much anyway, so rather choose for a bulb that has been tested and approved (by me that is). Just want to clear out that the combination bulb/Oxi Kallos 12%/plant spray to keep things humidified is working great for me. Except for the bulb, this is also the method I've used last summer with sunshine, and I even did a Casio VL-Tone (VT-1) and some other things which are now snow white. I can't tell if other methods or products are working as well: it may, it may not...
  10. I had no idea about this phenomena, it's all 220v here but It all makes sense now. So you'll need a 110v to 220v voltage converter I guess (dirty cheap though).
  11. Btw: is there a 110 volt version of this lamp? I didn't see one yet. Very important to avoid heating problems and worse fire and/or short circuits: use a descent lamp cage! The lamp cage must be able to handle the heat (300W). It's not that expensive: between $20 and $25, much cheaper than a new home...
  12. Here're the Apple systems that I've restored so far: - Macintosh SE/30 - Macintosh Color Classic (pristine and fully upgraded!) - Imac G4 (lamp), the latest and fasted version, also fully upgraded. - Macintosh Classic II - Macintosh SE - G4 Cube with monitor and USB speakers: again fully upgraded. - Apple IIc complete set with boxes. More to come...
  13. I found a German reseller on eBay who's selling this lamp for 39,- euro. (obviously, shipping costs can be too high for the US) But the link you're showing is from Svetilla: my lamp came from the very same company, and it's the best customer experience I've even had so far! Every step during the order, shipping etc was communicated to me so I was able to check the status during the whole process.
  14. For $50, I would'nt mind getting one for my collection...
