That is very nice!  So many

That is very nice!  So many questions: Did you have an Apple I to work from?  What method did you use to position the traces?  I'm curious to know how close this is to the original, and how it compares with the Mimeo 1.

Also, will this be available on GitHub?

The basis of my work are available pictures from the internet and hires pictures taken by myself at the CHM in Mountainview and Heinz Nixdorf Museum in Germany.

This work is my second shot, the first design was not so accurate (no curved edges, no teardops at the holes...)

Currently i am not sharing the files to the public
