So I want to make a lamp from a macintosh SE.

Has anyone done this before?

Anyone got any links to similar things (not the fish tanks)?

Is Ebay the cheapest place to find a non-operational SE (in the UK)?

Cheers in advance.

ebay's notta bad place, i spose.

here in n. america, i've found that sometimes you can find a mac se in the thrift stores. there's a place called value village here in b.c. that has hand-me-down clothes and such. occasionally, they have the rare mac se or powermac 6100 for dirt cheap. but they usually work.

as far as the lamp goes, im not sure if that's feasible. you could stick a bulb in it but three quarters of the bulb would be surrounded. or, you could take an existing lamp, put the post in the mac se, and the bulb would stick out on top. then maybe make your own lampshade or some such, i dunno.

Hey, I'm just posting the link. I never gave an opinion about whether it looks good.

Personally, I'm gunning for making a fish tank out of a Macintosh 128k.

I know, I was just saying that pauld would be insane if he made a lamp resembling the one from your link.

Good Luck with the tank - computer fish tanks actually look cool, unlike that horrid lamp. ;)
