Re: Those Q700 feets

In all the past topics I have read about the mysterious quadra feet I never saw a reason to want any... However now that I'm seeing them on these machines I think my 700 is definitely naked without them.

Re: Those Q700 feets

Yeah, they kind of grow on you.  I've never had much reason for feet on machines before, but after this project, they seem kinda cool.

Re: Those Q700 feets

Well, I wasn't 100% happy with the fit of v1, so I tightened it up. I literally put it in a mitre box and cut it in half. Then glued it back together. The cutting alone removed .5mm from the overall length and tightened up the 1/2 cylinder against the vertical wall. I am very happy with the results. The new rubber should be here early this week. Inching towards the finish line.

Here it is in natural amber. Not the prettiest color, but just imagine a mosquito in there.. for you JP fans. smile

LOL Uniserver... my wife never wears heels. But we aren't city-style so it's no big deal.

CHC - that LISP deserves something more... I don't know what. I'll see what I can cook up.


Also, today I took my one lonely SE/30 foot and cloned it. Finally I will have a set. smile Here's the cloned foot in light grey with another cloned HCM.

Re: Those Q700 feets

So cool!

According to this, the original round feets for the original Mac had a recessed Apple logo.  As long as you're manufacturing them from scratch...  I'm sure there is a picture somewhere. Trash?

Re: Those Q700 feets

The Apple embossed feets were only on the prototype 128k's, they never made it to the production units. Given its collectable status I wouldn't put them on my 128k, but I'd happily consider them for my SE-turned-SE/30, which is missing a couple of its feets anyway.

Re: Those Q700 feets

Cool. Well, if worst comes to worst, I'll just carve out an Apple. It shouldn't be too hard, but it's lower on the priority list at the moment.

Charles, speaking of wives, mine stays at home and takes care of our 2 boys... I suggested in her free time she could crank out these feets. The look on her face was priceless....LOL

I'm pretty sure that macdrone's proto 128k has those logo'd feet.

Re: Those Q700 feets

I have great memories from the Big BAD ROTTEN Apple involving women walking across sidewalks between vehicles and fashion show/night club entrances in wonderfully ludicrous high heels. When I go out dancing now it's even better. I can sit at one of the tables of the outdoor mall (upwind of the smokers, BLECH!!!!!!!!!!) and watch them transiting about 200' of rough concrete in heels to get to the door. lol

Once they're inside it's not such a comedic experience. tongue
