Restoring a Redstone Apple //e Clone

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I videoed my "adventures" restoring an old Redstone Apple //e clone in October 2017 (!) and finally got around to finishing editing it for general consumption.

Strap yourselves in, it's a bit of a long one...

The video can be seen on my (new) channel here:

I know some of you will cringe at some of my restoration techniques, but please be nice as this machine was in a pretty bad state when I received it. Some of the techniques I used were new to me, so it was a bit of a learning experience as well.

Cheers,
Mike

Wow that system was just filthy! Was it stored outside in a shed or something? I really like the segment where you take a garden hose to wash the metal shield; sometimes that is the only way.

 

I have cleaned a few really grungy Atari 2600 cases, but never anything quite that dirty.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the ebay auction said that it had been stored outside in a shed for many years; and it really showed. ;-)

 

Even the box it arrived in had bits falling out everywhere. I was actually reluctant at first to put my hand inside it for fear of what I might find. Thankfully it was pretty much just dirt/debris and some remains left by spiders.
