Re: Cosmo's stuff

Found out that the earlier /// i have with 230V Powersupply, that the RIFA from the PSU had exploded sometime ago, it had some mess inside.... wonder it still worked, somehow.

So no swapping of the 230V to the US unit. I need to make the 115v->230v mod to the US PSU, new fuse and swap of one cable PIN (115V to 230V) that should do it.
Hope that works out.

Will order the Universal Powersupply when they become available again at Ultimatemicro.

Re: Cosmo's stuff

Maybe hit up Macdrone. I gave him one a couple of years ago and he's selling off a bunch of stuff now. He may be getting rid of it.

Re: Cosmo's stuff

Just obtained an Macintosh 128k (M0001P) P = International 220-240V-model.

It has an 512k badge in the back and 512k upgraded board inside - so it was upgraded to 512k pretty early on when it was sold. Luckily it wasn't upgraded to Macintosh Plus or 512kE like
my another "128k" i once got. Somebody upgraded it to Plus with locally made upgrade kit and CUT AN HOLE to the case for the SCSI connector in back.... not nice.

However this came with short keyboard, external 400k drive and a mouse. The internal drive was 400k.

Also some 100 disks but those were about 99% for Amiga and few for PC and Atari ST.

I have an spare 128k board which i can swap inside, but no "Macintosh" or "Macintosh 128k" badge to replace. This is built in week 51/1984 so i assume
i'd need an "Macintosh 128k" badge to the back.

Cleaned up and will test soon. Was working when picked it up.

Finally an real-deal 128k smile
