Macintosh SE/30

My Macintosh SE/30 (added to my collection in 2010)

  • 68030 CPU @ 16mhz
  • 20MB RAM (plus RamDoubler)
  • 16GB SSD (SCSI2SD)
  • MacOS 7.5.5
  • Re-capped motherboard 2/9/2013 (see photos & video)
  • LocalTalk network connected with my other Mac’s and IIgs.

My re-cap work isn’t going to win any awards since all I had on hand were radial capacitors, and not the proper SMD caps, and this is the first time I have soldered surface mount without help, but it works like it should, see the following video.
