Apple II, IIe, IIc, and IIgs Parts question
I have been restoring Apple II computers for about a year trying to bring as many as I can back to life. I initially purchased a pile of broken units from a local e-scrap company for parts. They were all too far gone to salvage, but made great parts machines. Well, I am running out of certain items and wondered where people on this forum, who have a similar hobby, get their parts? I have a very early Apple IIe (the painted case kind and not the plastic mold injection kind) and it has a keyboard that is missing the "Del" (Delete) key. I tried for a keyboard on e-Bay and was outbid and it ended up going for an outrageous price (as most things Apple II are doing these days on eBay). I would appreciate any and all help and advice I can get from users on this forum. Thanks in advance.
Long live the Apple II!!!
As a side note, my 11 year old daughter wants an Apple IIe for her birthday. I showed her how to program in BASIC the other day and she caught the programming bug. It was a blast to see how excited she was.
