I would go to this class. Lots of people need this information. Newbies are ruining their newly acquired retro machines because they don’t know what they are doing or are watching The 8-Bit Guy too much.

I was tossing around the idea of doing a “basic Restoration and troubleshooting your micro computer collection for beginners” class focused on Apple II and compact Macs specifically, since those are in my wheelhouse. Obviously some of the cleaning and basic techniques would apply to other types of machines.

The idea is people starting a collection or even those who may have vintage micros but are just starting to add Apple II and/or Compact Macs to their collection and are looking for tips, hints, ideas of where to start and what to do.

No oscilloscopes or multimeters, just the basics of cleaning, testing, simple troubleshooting as well as where to find helpful information . I even considered either CDs (which I already have the ISO file to make them, but CDs are fading from daily use) or cheap usb sticks to give to attendees that already have a nice collection of the manuals and how-to books and service notes I’ve collected over the years in pdf format.

My concern is the focus may be too narrow to garner any amount of attendance since 90% of the focus is Apple specific.

Any thoughts?
