    Any chance you'd post the Newton and Emate (at my cost of course!) ??

    Hey old macs I would be pleased to post - at your cost of course. Are you interested in any manuals or accessaries that I may have?
    It would be fantastic to get them to someone interested.
    By the way I am not good at this reply and posting thing. If you could have patience with me as I work out how to have it communicate that would be helpful. Or should we swap emails? Any suggestions please.

    The only old gear I can get hold of are a couple of old white Intel based iMacs that a local school are disposing of as they have the screen line issue

    If they were cheap enough to repair I'd grab one for our (just turned 6) daughter to use for school as she loves doing Mathletics to improve her math skills and having her own machine to do it on would save her from having to use mine...

    Scored an LC630 for $50 yesterday, it didn't have a hard drive but it did have the full 68040 with FPU. I couldn't get it to play nice with a spare CF-IDE adaptor and any of my larger CF cards tho. Weirdly a SanDisk 32mb card was the only one that worked.

    So I gave up and dropped a 1.3 GB IBM laptop drive in and off she went. Installed Mac OS 8.1 and then swapped out the old 2x CD drive for a spare 12x I had lying around.

    So I finally got permission from my lovely wife to invest in a proper soldering station and hot air rework station and started the rescue process on my LCIII.



    The corrosion is bad in 2 places but the rest of the board is fine.







    The cap near the pram battery destroyed one of its pads and ate away the traces on both sides, lucky this is an easy fix with wire for one side and the other side is just to the nearby ground plane.



    All fixed:



    Other side:


    I'm just waiting for my stack of tantalum caps to arrive to finish it off.

    Hi all! I've been a bit absent for the last year!

    Any new developments in the vintage Mac world?

    Got an lc630 with no hdd, got her up an and running initially with an IBM laptop drive but now it's ruining with a 1 GB CF card via IDE adaptor. It has the full fat 040 which gets write warm so now I've installed a nice heat sink to keep it cool.

    I'm going to overclock it to 40 Mhz now that heat is under control.
