Not sure when it says Mouse Port - I think it needs to say 'Serial' and note that it uses 12V according to this thread MS IntelliMouse 1.1A Serial Support?

Bought two PCs from my usual ewaste source for $70.

First one is in an inverted style AT case which I'd been trying to find an example of for a bit.

Interesting. I seem to have the desktop version of that case. Same design and buttons (the one at the far-end, sorry couldn't find a better shot):

Matrox G200 AGP, unfortunately this only has DVI output which wasn’t visible in the eBay ad.

It did only cost me $5.

Warlord,

When you are finished with hot station, pull the nozzle off the back on. This breaks the corrosion bond. Always.
Do a temperature calibration using lead solder that melts at 188C. 180C not meltable, 190C melting approximately.
Chinese stuff were not calibrated.

I have a Quick hot air station at work heavy use and nozzles is not stuck, just due to frequent swaps.

Cheers,

Great Northern aka Canada.

thanks for the tip.

these are about as good or better than a real quick 861dw.
last year I almost bought the fake 861dw becasue it was a pretty good copy.
but now these showed up almost as low price as the fake 861dw so I pull the trigger.

Almost bought a mouse collection today - but passed as it seemed uncouth, when noticing the intended owners name already clearly stated on that one particular mouse.... 😲
(slightly misspelled, and should've been boxed though!)

Free image hosting comes with some cough, cough add-ons. 😁 I see those nasty adds from time to time but in this instance there are no such adds when I click the thumbnail and I'm not even logged in.

Those parts are flea market loot aka fresh from the dumpster. Today it was total carnage, huge boxes filled with computer parts in various states of decay. All these parts come from Germany and Italy and basically they were thrown away. Some resourceful individuals get them into our country. 😁

PS: must be some automated browser version logics, or PC vs mobile etc differences, though not all your pic links showed the extra 'bits', so....
Oh well, nice 'haul' either way, all parts considered.... 😊

Yeah I see where are you going so I'm going to stop. 😁 No need to turn this into a bloodbath. 😁

Interesting. 🤣
I almost bought a Gigabyte GA-386UM 386 motherboard but the seller has not answered if it has any cache and sent no picture yet 🙁
For $80 with shipping or can drive an hour and pick it up for less, may sound expensive but in my area that is actually cheap for a guaranteed working 386 board.
Still might buy it but he also has some decent Asus AT boards for about same price....
Did buy a few old glass insulators to add to my collection, they are 1942 or prior and only cost a few dollars each.

Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor.

Yesterday's $26 acquisition from a local online business liquidation auction was an untested Twinhead Slimnote 5100t laptop. (486 DX4/100, 32Mb RAM, ~800Mb hard drive). Haven't found much info on it other than some mentions in PC Magazine back in the mid 90s.
Came with bag and 2 extra batteries, but no AC power adapter. Luckily, I had a Toshiba adapter that worked.
I was happy to find that it actually powered up and booted into Windows 98! The power connection is pretty finicky - might have some cracked solder joints that need attention.
I'm looking forward to having some fun messing with this machine.

Good score, Twinheads were well regarded back in the day. The power socket might not be bad, it might be that the non-original power adapter is just a tad too slim in the barrel or a tad too wide in the hole.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.
