    I note that a mining motherboard locally has been available for the asking price of $20. It's a Biostar TB250-BTC board--even at $20, it's no deal, as it retailed for much less than $100.

    Bakelite is very durable. Too bad that it wasn't used for 80's computer cases.

    Why not use ultrapure lamp oil? (triple-filtered paraffin/kerosene). Much cheaper--odorless and used as a lightweight lubricant.

    Thanks for mentioning that, @Unknown_K.

    Acrylic can be flame-polished, but that's not the same thing.

    Where are the 3D printer enthusiasts?

    With the appropriate BIOS upgrade, should work on most smaller SCSI drives. ISTR something about adding a pullup resistor on one of these things, but my memory is a bit sketchy.

    Only mention the bit about the Trantors, because the fairly common PROM-less T13B was sold with CD ROM drives. My blog on cloning PALs contains the equations for the missing PAL (socketed, BTW). ...

    With what? Solvent? That turned the bits to crumbly granules. If you've followed my posts through the years, you'd know that I'm a big proponent of solvent cements in place of glue. Some stuff...

    Anyone with some of the late 80s self-destructing Apple gear might learn something. I tossed a perfectly good Apple color monitor because the case would spontaneously shed bits of itself with no...

    You did see the notice by the museum conservators rejecting the Retr0brite treatment--it apparently cause small cracks in the plastic surface. But hey, a Model D isn't as rare as a 2 cent Inverted...

    You may just want to repaint the bezel in a water-based acrylic paint. That will seal it and help retard further degradation. Just mask off the badge.

    I looked all over the web and couldn't find any 8-bit ISA Tekram controllers. Found some 16 bit ISA ones, though.

    I think the OP may be interested in something like a Seagate ST-01 or Trantor 128.

    I use both Siemens and Qume drives. They work fine. The Siemens is essentially a clone of the Shugart.

    Most desktop managers are resource hogs. I've used XFCE for years because of its low impact. Resembles the traditional Windows desktop pretty well.

    I've got a Logitech Scanman hand scanner, complete with software and card. It's the original monochrome one. If it's the same interface as your Mitsumi, it's yours for shipping in the USA.
