    Great post & well done.

    It's great to see one so young (going by your profile), so passionate about such old equipment. :)

    As an old fart who remembers doing component level repair on those Power/Sweep boards, floppy drives and motherboards when the exchange price of a Power/Sweep was AU$450.00, it makes me appreciate somebody taking the time to go this far.

    At least when I'm gone there will be those who care enough to keep these curios going. :D

    Very nice work. The only thing I would change in the last picture would be to substitute the older 400K external drive for the 800K you've got.

    Nonetheless, well done.

    Nice machine, and great work! I love that it's paired with the original Imagewriter.
