So I went down to the basement to start working on some projects that I have been saving all year for our Christmas break and have finally realized as I am getting older and collecting more and more projects, that I now have enough projects to work on well past my 100th birthday. (I am 60 now, so that's about 40 years worth. :-) LOL!) It hit me that I now need to prioritize them and start letting some of them go, so that others may share in the joy of restoring vintage Apple equipment. So far this break I have:
- Recapped 34 Macintosh LC power supplies.
- Recapped Analog boards for my Macintosh 128K and 512K units.
- Finished my Disk II FLoppy EMU (Thanks Dave for this wonderful kit)
- Put together another one of Joe's Computer Museum Apple /// CPM card
- Recapped 6 Apple II power supplies for a friend of mine.
After doing all of this, I realized I have not made a dent in all the "projects" I have down in the basement. My wife will be happy, and hopefully some of you folks will be too. I have decided to list some of my "projects" over in the "For sale and Trade" forum first before putting them on eBay. I will be cleaning out the project room over the next 2-3 days and listing stuff here in this forum for sale with what I would consider fair non-eBay prices. If there are no takers in a week or three, I will put in on eBay. I am not sure what all I am going to find, as I have been collecting these for the past 25 years or so.
Oh yeah, I am not sure if people want any ImageWriter II printers, but I have more than a dozen of them and don't need nearly that many. I will be dragging them out and testing them and putting them up there too. I think I even have some sealed Ribbons for them.
Hopefully, there are things that interest this community and someone can take on these projects and complete it, or stick on their shelf for a while until they come to the same realization I did over this past weekend. :-) LOL!
