Some good info here for trying to figure out how stuff works for 68k Macs.
I am not sure how widespread of a problem this is, but someone made replica 3D printed gears. I wonder how strong the replacement material really is. The detail looks decent though. It is supposed to work with 400k/800k/1.44Mb floppy drives with auto eject motor (made by Sony).
Cool, I read the first paragraph and it sounds good, but I want to watch it first and then I'll read it after. :)
Wow, just looking at the movie poster, it looks awesome. I need to check it out!
Looks like it's in flawless condition. You're always looking out! Oh wait, 0 feedback, but he seems to be very up-front about his sales with nothing to hide.
Haha, good point about their signature frame-broiled smell.

Yeah, I know right? I had 1MB of RAM in 1990! The amount of RAM you can put in the SE/30 is one of its legendary features. But when it shipped, it had a 24-bit ROM even though the hardware was 32-bit, so the max was RAM config back then was 32MB, which was probably plenty. Then a system patch Mode32 came along to allow for for RAM. They also made the ROM modular on a SIMM, I am guessing in case they wanted to sell upgrade kits later, but it never happened.
I have a programmable ROM SIMM installed that was made by an enthusiast hacker, Doug Brown. It uses a IIsi ROM as a base with some tweaks like a boot disk that can be selected on startup or you can program in a custom boot chime. The stock ROM SIMM from some later models interestingly can be used with some older ones without any major side effects. System 8.1 is the last OS you can install on an SE/30, but you need a 32-bit ROM or else it will not boot.

Yeah, I should try with a color video card. :) I added a pic of the DayStar 030 accelerator with the QFP style CPU and the "new" FPU.
I added 128MB of RAM to the system.
I am waiting on a couple parts to come for the PSU.
