Did some work on the Mac Plus earlier today.
Transplanted the internals from a damaged and badly yellowed case into a fairly pristine one from a "dead" Plus that I picked up for a few bucks at VCFMW last fall.
Everything went fine. I still have a bit of monitor adjustment to do though.
The Apple M1299 RGB monitor that I have on my Mac II Si apparently blew a stinky power filter cap, so it looks like I'll be taking that apart soon.
Still seems to work fine, but the smell is pretty terrible, and I'm sure the cap insides that are probably all over the place inside the monitor aren't doing great things to the rest of the components in there.
Basically, these Wico Ergosticks are all micro switches with a stick that passes through the center of them, and acts as a fulcrum to selectively press them.
This particular Ergostick was a little too tight and occasionally had too much friction to return to center...
