    Wow, that's a very impressive unit.

    I think the reaction against JDW is a little bit strong. While it is inappropriate to ask, he was just curious and asked a blunt question, so the response I see here was not in kind.
  3. Welcome to the forum! I was the one (or one of the ones) who emailed about a keyboard. It's an awesome lot, I just couldn't justify getting it just for a keyboard. Anyways the boxed G4 Cube is especially awesome, congrats! - Caleb

    Wow, super cool, thanks!
  5. It's something in the soft power circuitry that is supposed to have a combination of semiconductors to pass off the power on signal voltage from the 6v PRAM battery to the PSU Power On pin until it's turned off, when the computer sends a "power off" signal to it and cuts the voltage from the PSU to the PSU Power On pin.
  6. I'm guessing you're in the UK? I have a parts IIci that's mostly complete but might be difficult to ship things to the UK.
  7. You'll probably be able to reach Rob Blessin at nextcomputers.org, but if not, I was able to get help from him three years ago at the email address on this site: https://www.blackholeinc.com/specials/contact.shtml and he was very knowledgeable.
  8. Pretty remarkable that you did that without a hot air gun. I sure wouldn't have wanted to do that.
  9. I can't help but wonder, how do I wire the amber CRT as-is to work with a signal? [EDIT] From looking at it, it appears yellow is a composite signal, black is ground, and purple is +12v, and that's all there is. Pic where someone has wired a composite signal to the black and yellow CRT connection:
  10. I have a similar but less dramatic problem, the speaker sounds very quiet and a little tinny at startup, then once in the OS everything is normal. I'm totally confused. It's a board that had semi-major cap repair.
  11. Very cool, and thanks for the stls! RE the CRT without tabs: I thought one might be able to spot weld tabs onto the CRT, but then again, you might just cause the CRT to erupt. There's one with tabs on ebay for less last I checked, though.
  12. could I possibly get a copy of the stl for the adapters? I had the same problem with a CRT I tried to put in, but don't have 3D modeling skills to make an adapter..,
  13. Putting in a random address in the Netherlands returns an estimated shipping cost for up to a pound of $23.28 USD. Its $13 if I select "large envelope" but... especially with a bezel, an envelope would be impossible.
