We have the Manuals, Power brick and C64 unit only.  We need to get a floppy drive for it someday and some software. As of now we just code in what we want to do… not easy but still fun.

Condition: Keyboard needs 1 key repaired, we have the key and spring, but need to buy the plastic piece under it.

Acquired From: I think I got it from a thrift store in the early 2000s. Very sad I actually threw out the original box to save room. How could I!!!

Condition: Needs 1 key replaced, we already have it ready to go. Also have a few more expansion cards not listed here yet. Have not powered on, will most likely need a new power supply or a power supply rebuild.

Back story: My first computer was an Apple IIe and it was a lot of fun. I remember playing several old arcade classics, and I remember a program that I could type and it would speak it. I always called it the robot program because there was an animation of a robot talking. I have not been able to find this program or anything about it online. PLEASE let me know if you know the program and speech card it goes with.

Acquired From: Facebook Marketplace. See the pickup video here.

Oscilloscope PC (2004):

I built this PC into an old vintage oscilloscope. I found the oscilloscope on the side of the road, but it was broken. The part that was bad cost more then buying a working unit. Other parts were removed from this unit from the last owner so it would have been too much effort to repair. I love rackmount equipment so i decided to make it a unique computer. After building it and using it a few times, parts were taken for other systems. Someday I will rebuild it better than it was.
