Looking for a working NeXT (non-ADB) mouse.

Unfortunately, mine seems to have mysterioiusly died while in storage.

Don't throw the mouse away.  If you're handy, it might be repairable.  I say so because this evening, I just fixed mine.  It could be something as simple as a bad connection where the cable meets the pc board inside the mouse.

The problem with mine was that one of the microswitches had been removed by the former owner because he read somewhere that you could use the mouse on a macintosh by breaking the right switch off.  (I doubt this is true.)  I soldered a new microswitch from an old mac mouse on the board and now it works perfectly.
