    I'll be putting a lot of this up sooner or later. I'll keep notes on who's interested in what, once I've had a chance to Catalog, clean and test

    So.. the infamous shed find.. (restro apple find)

    IMG_0367.JPGIMG_0370.JPGIMG_0372.JPG

    So some really basic testing and sorting this afternoon. Some things work right away.. quite a few macs work perfectly, at least one Apple IIe. One of the IIgs works, another doesn't yet. A few of the Apple IIes don't work yet (mostly garbage on screen, so likely 74xx chips).

    Had major smoke come from one screen, but so far nearly every screen tested works really well. I spent a lot of time finding matching cables to machines from amongst the rats nests of cables, so more sorting will be in order to speed further testing!

    nice find indeed, I would like to put my hand up for a composite colour monitor for a apple 2 series also (after Trav) if I can, might also be interested in a IIc.

    would be fun to pour over and sort through all the gear, grats!

    There are 3, and 2 monitors. 1 monitor isn't healthy, but one works.
