  1. Great find! You seem to have been getting lucky the past few months, between the NEXT setup and this! The Amigas are fun machines. 2 player Lemmings with 2 mice!
  2. edit: nevermind, i see in an older post its a color classic
  3. So from this picture, it looks like the blue and red are swapped around at the very least
  4. You'd need to swap the ROM chips, and the disk controller(the IWM) with ones from a SE FDHD. Might be worth seeing if someone here has a set for sale in the trading post(or a battery bombed SE FDHD logic board that the needed chips are still in good shape)
  5. the other option for a more "plug and play" solution for a 68k Mac would be the BlueSCSI which is a project of @erichelgeson(PowerPC Macs don't work with it as far as I know, or the Mac Plus) https://gumroad.com/l/bluescsi-1b https://github.com/erichelgeson/BlueSCSI
  6. Here's a link to a model for the CD bezel and a blank bezel
  7. Nice setup, and welcome! If for some reason the ifixit kit isn't long enough to reach down the handles, this is the screwdriver that I use for compact Macs https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BC56XFG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  8. I don't have an older Machine/OS handy to try on, but both audio and video work fine for me in Safari 14.0.3 on an M1 mini running Big Sur, along with on Quicktime 10.5 Player
  9. From what I've heard, the internal plastic is pretty much the same as what they used on the older Powermacs.
  10. I've heard that mixing baking soda with superglue helps make a much stronger bond this video shows it a bit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq5YJbZXaZk and this one goes much more in depth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1meoZaHYZo
  11. I ordered some PCBs for this project(rather than doing the direct wiring method) which should be here within the next week or 2, so if anyone is interested in a blank PCB or 2 for a few bucks shipped(within the US), let me know
  12. *nervously looks at the iMac g4 in my projects pile* Guess I know how I'm spending my weekend
  13. Didn't realize they were still using Maxell's in the G3 Era, but I opened up my Blue and White yesterday to a tasty treat. Luckily it seemed to clean up fairly well and I was able to boot to the flashing question mark at least. Not sure if the drive in there works or not, or if there's an OS on it. This week I'll remove the motherboard, desolder battery holder, make sure it's all cleaned up below it, and clean the rust/acid that made its way to the hinge, and pop in a new holder. Also check on my iMacs and remove the batteries in them I guess!
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2Z2bofrU2o Is this the clip by chance? edit: Maybe not, missed the FDHD part
  15. I'd be surprised if you find a PowerPC build for a Fortinet VPN that'd be compatible/have the right ciphers to connect to something modern.
