Apple 2E - free for the cost of shipping materials and shipping

Post by macdo » Thu, 01 Feb 2007 01:08:10


I have at least a dozen Apple //e's that I would like NOT to throw
away. I just want to ensure they do not go to a landfill. They are
all missing a key or two off the keyboard. I can provide 5.25" disk
controller cards at no charge. I can also provide some super serial
cards for as long as they hold out. I even have some 5.25" disk
drives and I can provide one per system for as long as I have them to
give out.

For shipping, I intend to take them to the local UPS Store and have
them boxed and shipped. Whatever I am charged, is what I want to get
paid. I can provide a copy of the shipping receipt in the box so you
can be assured that I am not making any money on this. I would like
to be pre-paid before I ship. Shipping would take place on a
Saturday, as I am just too busy during the week to get to the UPS
Store before they close.

These sound like good machines to network with NadaNet. ;-)

Any chance you could give some idea of the cost for various parts
of the country?

I will be taking a trip to the UPS store on Friday, as I happen to be
off this Friday. I will take one of the units with me to get the
weight and a shipping quote, plus the approx cost of the box and any
required packaging material.. Give me a zip code, and I'll get you a
quote. BTW...I am in Florida, and my zip is 34677. These are the
left overs from eBay purchases. I have bought many systems to get
particular items, so I am just trying to get rid of the excess.

I'd be interested in "some" of them though I certainly don't want to
take anything that Michael would want. I'd like to set up a nada-node
of my own and so would only need motherboards. Would you be willing to
pop them out of the case?

Thanks!

Sorry to mislead you, Jack--I would only want one, if that.

Please go for it! My remark was just a suggestion that if others
want to try some native //e networking, here's an opportunity! ;-)

I wen to the UPS store this morning. These are the prices they quoted
me for various parts of the country.

California : $45.00
Texas, Chicago, New York City : $25.00
Georgia/Florida : $21.00

Bubblewrap, box, labor to pack : $14.00

These are their prices, not inflated. The prices include a 2e, a 5.25"
disk drive if wanted for as long as i have extra 5.25" drives and any
cards I can spare, which would be at least a 5.25" disk controller
card. As long as I have spare super serial cards, i will also include
them for free.

Let me know if you are interested and we can firm up the details.

Sorry, but I have decided I will not ship internationally. I am not
an eBay powerseller, just a collector looking for some homes for my
discards. Again, I want to reiterate the these computers are missing
a couple of keys off the key board. I will power them up and make
sure the light comes on, and that they throw composite video signal to
a composite monitor and if you are getting a disk drive, that it reads/
boots up from a 5.25" disk. They come with no warranty, as I am
giving them away for the price of shipping, but you can be assured
that I did test them and they were working when I did.
