  1. Very cool! A Color Classic has been on my want list for some time. I pretty much gave up on that, though. So it's nice to see someone get a good one.
  2. Oh yeah, forgot about the keyed DIMMs. The eBay seller apparently didn't know what he took it out of. Hmmm..
  3. There is one on eBay with the same Apple Part Number and the listing says they pulled it out of a Quadra 8500. Haha. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-256KB-L2-Cache-820-0672-A-/114208727907 So probably for a Power Mac 8500.
  4. That really sucks. I usually try to match the series or at least get caps that are made for switching power supplies. Who knows what the ripple current is doing as I am no engineer. I think with PSUs or analog boards on Macs that don't support soft power it is probably not as big of a deal but it seems the ones that do have soft power it might be more crucial. I could be wrong as I am only going by what I have experienced myself.
  5. Perhaps you should try the audio out jack on the 6100, not on the CD-ROM drive. Have you tried that?
  6. I have a SuperCard Pro and a Kryoflux if you need someone to image it. Try it out with some Copy and image programs first and maybe you will get lucky. Come to think of it I will look through my software to see if I have a copy too. It could be the Amiga version but I'll check when I get home.
  7. The only problem I have with LR44 batteries is they tend to leak as they age and go flat.
  8. Will the card physically fit in the IIsi? I have wondered that myself...
  9. Wow, that is super cool. If you run into any other colleagues that need to downsize and you can't store anymore, let me know.
  10. Very cool that you kept your machine. I bought the same model back in 2000 too. I replaced my first G4 with it that I bought in late 1999, which was a G4 Yikes 400, before they lowered all the speeds by 50mhz because of shortages of the CPU, IIRC. Did you restore with the correct restore disks because these G4s came with Mac OS 9.0.4? Not that it matters because 9.1 - 9.2+ is a better choice. A number of years ago I found someone that was selling a very clean G4 dual 500 gigabit for $20 that was used in an office and snatched it up. I still have it and it is one o
  11. Thanks for the info. I will have to try the blanks that I have again. I couldn't get them to fit quite right so I thought they were using a different design.
  12. Thanks for making these. I don't have any bad ones yet but it is always good to have spare parts on hand. Considering the alternatives on eBay this is a great deal even with shapeways charging $9.99 for shipping which you could probably add this to an existing order to combine shipping and save more.
  13. Thanks for that. I edited my original post to make it clearer as to what i am looking for. I am looking for the blanks that go in the Rear Expansion Slots. The blanks you remove when you ad a NuBus card.
  14. Does anyone have any images or dimensions for the rear expansion slot covers on the PowerMac 8100? I guess it would be the same for the Quadra 800/840AV? I can't seem to find any information anywhere as to the covers. I know they were unique covers and clear or frosted IIRC. My 8100/80 came with one and I can't seem to find it. I must have taken it out and like a dummy didn't put it back in. I would like to model replacements if it hasn't been done already for 3d printing. Thanks!
  15. Yep I would do the same. Fortunately I have not owned a Mac model that had the battery with leads soldered on. One of the revisions of the Apple IIGS came like that and I would replace it with a holder too. None of my macs came that way. I did get one Mac used, a PowerMac G3 Tower beige that had a leaking battery that destroyed the battery holder and corroded the frame. It didn't do any damage to the logic board though, thankfully. I forget the brand but it was not a red bomb. On that Mac I soldered in headers so I could unplug the battery holder and put leads on it so it could be reloc
