Everything up to and including replacing damaged SIMM slots or DIN41612 connectors. I'm also able to remove and socket 680X0 for people who might want that.I'll keep it reasonable so it is affordable to everyone.

I have some ram that would work $32 for 32Mb max on Color Motherboards.
Quote from: Rob Blessin Black Hole on December 08, 2022, 09:18:06 PMHello Fantome: I did hear from Dave , so he is scheduled for open heart surgery (his second) in January. I'm going to do you a solid here Fantome and see if I have a working Turbo Color motherboard as they are notorious for failing , I think I do , if it has new caps and I paid $75 for them , if you can reemburse me, cool . So if you have an shipping address just PM me and if you cover shipping , I'll put some ram on it lol that way you will have a working NeXT in the interim . Dave well, I think will eventually make good and repair the board when he is in better spirits and better health. We can cross that bridge on what to do when he actually has the repaired board. I'll let him know what I'm doing , I think it is the right thing to do here as I'm quantum entangled in this one lol and hey it is the NeXT community. Happy Holidays! ho ho ho Cheers Rob Blessin
