Herb's Mac collectables


Most recent revision date of this page, Mar 26 2014.

The following are items that some consider as "collectable" because of age and interest. Prices and terms subject to change without notice.

On this page:

  • cosmetic condition
  • Early Mac parts
  • Keyboards and mouse for Plus, 128K, 512K; other pointing devices
  • Early Mac systems
  • Mac accessories, upgrades, add-ons
  • Apple HD20, HD20 SC
  • early Apple Macintosh software
  • References from customers
  • early Apple Macintosh carrying bags

    Double boxing: that means items which include an original Apple box could be shipped inside a larger box, to protect the original Apple box. This will increase shipping costs due to weight and possibly size. We will also charge an additional fee for the time, box, and materials this will require.

    A complete list of pointers to our Mac inventory, services and information pages is on my Mac home page.
    Many Mac parts are listed on my Mac Parts page. But check my Mac home page for links to many OTHER parts and systems pages.

    An unusual source of information for the oldest Macs - Apple's Web domain at mac.com - has a page on "pre-System 7 Macs" hardware and software. Check Apple Macintosh before System 7 by Eric Rasmussen written Aug 8 2005.

    When ordering, please follow this link for my email address, ordering information, terms and conditions, and info about orders outside the USA. If you live outside the United States, consider the costs of shipping; and the costs of providing payment.

    Cosmetic condition

    Cosmetic condition of early Mac items: Old Mac items are often in various cosmetic conditions and are priced accordingly. Color fading is due to exposure to light. Many customers have some kind of cosmetic condition in mind when they order, but some do not or don't care. Please specify cosmetic condition when ordering early Mac items; I will ask you if you don't. I have some UNUSED parts which won't be faded at all, check my unused parts list for specifics.

    The following are terms I use to describe cosmetic condition, from best to worst. Also see some Early Mac systems I have below as examples.

    Excellent or minimal fading means almost original light grey platinum or tan. Here's photos of tan mice in that condition. I never use the term "mint".

    Good means slight or modest but uniform fading, not yellowing, a darkening of the grey or tan color, no local color patches from old lables. Here's a "good condition" Compact Mac SE system. Very good would be light fading.

    Fair is faded to a yellow (from tan) or dark grey (from platinum), may have patches of light color. There may be some light scrapes or small scratches. We don't often sell yellow or faded Mac systems, but some customers want items strictly for use and cosmetics are not important to them. However, the internal parts still have value for repairs or use. So these will NOT be discounted a lot.

    I won't offer a system in poor cosmetic condition, with obvious yellowing and physical damage to the exterior. I'll just part it out.

    Faded, patches are general conditions and will vary. Yellow or faded or patchy are like this mouse, faded to yellow-grey. with patches of grey or tan where a thumb-sized label was removed. There may be similar light areas which were covered or simply in shade.

    Please specify cosmetic condition when ordering early Mac items; I will ask you if you don't.

    example systems

    [good SE] a "good condition" Compact Mac SE

    The Mac SE system in this section is an EXAMPLE of an SE in good cosmetic condition", and was sold in April 2006. There are no physical damages to this SE case. There is slight fading from the original "platinum" but it is uniform and not unsightly. The CRT screen has no signifigant screen burn, the image is bright and sharp. No manuals, original box or disks included; but I get these from time to time, check my Mac books and software section.

    Here are images of the SE in good condition:

    Systems of this vintage are sold with cleaned and lubricated floppy drives, either 800K or the 1.2Mb for the "superdrive" or "FDHD" model. The diskette drive reads and writes diskettes and ejects them correctly. Hard drives sold with such systems have no obvious errors, Any software on the hard drive is offered without any warrenty or guarantee whatsoever.

    [Platinum Plus] Here's an EXAMPLE of a Mac Plus system in near-excellent condition, very clean, no fading of color, and working fine. Keyboard and mouse will be in similar and matching condition. In short, a Mac system in great shape! Mac Plus systems in good condition are likely available from me, ask about price and availability. Please specify your desired cosmetic condition, or if you are buying "for use" rather than "looks".


    Early Apple Macintosh parts and hardware


    floppy disk drives and diskettes

    If you are looking for 800K floppy drives for the Mac 128K or 512K, or for 400K or 800K diskettes, please check check my floppy drive section of my parts Web page.

    The 400K drive was only used in the 128K and 512K computers. Here is a link to a photo of a 400K drive, out of the Mac or external drive case. As supplies and repairs permit, we offer 400K floppy drives, cleaned and lubricated and tested. Cleaning and lubrication is necessary as these drive have chronic problems with old lubricants.

    Internal and external 400K drives repaired as described may be available. Availability and price of these drives will vary, but no less than $79 plus shipping in any event as of Dec 2009. SPECIFY THE COSMETIC CONDITION you want for an external drive, please, See this link for examples.. Shipping weight is 3 lbs for internal drives, 5 lbs for external. We may limit this offer at times, as it takes time to find and repair these drives; or if we are out of these drives.

    We may accept your nonworking 400K drive for credit when buying ours, or we may buy yours outright - ask for details. But typically we will offer a credit toward purchase a 400K drive, which has NOT BEEN PREVIOUSLY REPAIRED, and which has ALL PARTS INCLUDED. Specifically, the felt pad and holder that is mounted on the drive read/write head MUST be included. THIS OFFER IS LIMITED and is not guaranteed.

    Early Mac or Apple A/C cords

    Apple logoed A/C cord, for USA (110V AC). Has Apple logo on AC plug. The cord may be brown/tan, or ivory, or grey. It ends in a FEMALE, three-pin AC connector which plugs into your Mac. The center pin is offset from the other two pins. Some A/C cords have a right-angled female connector, it is "bent" relative to the cord; these bends can occur in three ways. Some have a "straight" female connector, it is "straight" relative to the cord. Describing these is difficult, so I have an image and I'll try to describe them as well.

    We can't tell you what model Mac had what A/C cord, we can only sell you a cord of some particular description. Please specify color, if you want a right-angled connector, WHICH WAY it is angled, and if you wish the Apple/Mac item you want it for. But we offer no guarantees that any cord was sold by Apple with any particular product, and I certainly don't know myself. Check the Web, check other sources for such information.

    The image at this link shows four female connectors which plug into your Mac/Apple product. They are labled A B C D. They are positioned with the power cord hanging STRAIGHT DOWN from the FEMALE connector. The "angled" connectors are shown facing you if possible so you can see the FEMALE pins.
    "A" shows a straight connector, its pins point STRAIGHT UP and you can't directly see the female pins.
    "B" shows the bent connector's pins, and the center pin is offset to the RIGHT.
    "C" shows the bent connector's pins, and the center pin is offset to the LEFT.
    "D" shows the bent connector's pins, and the center pin is offset DOWN.
    Surprising variety, eh?

    Brown/tan Apple brand A/C cord, straight, not right-angled - OUT as of Jan 2006 but ask, price will be above $?? plus shipping.
    Right angled Apple A/C cord, you specify bend as above. Grey or white, $? each plus shipping. Brown/tan, $?? each.
    Ivory/white or grey Apple A/C cord, not right angled, $? each plus shipping.

    Early Mac/Apple cables

    Mac 128K/512K (DB-9) to Imagewriter I (DB-25) ORIGINAL APPLE cable, 590-0169. Dark tan, Apple logo, square/rectangular molded connector housings. ask if available and price, at least $?? plus shipping.

    Apple original serial/printer cord, DB-9 to DIN-8. See our Mac cables parts for descriptions of these connectors.

    We may have others, ask!

    Early Mac programmer's switch

    The programmers switch or reset switch is that little plastic device on the side of the Mac which lets you manually reset the computer. If your Mac "hangs up", this will restart your computer without turning the power off and on. It also has an "interrupt" switch which was used by software developers.
    We have TAN/BROWN switches for the Mac 128K and 512K and Plus for $?? each plus shipping. ----------------------

    Keyboards and mouse for Plus, 128K, 512K; other pointing devices

    Keyboards and mouse for Plus, 128K, 512K

    All keyboards and mice are sold tested and working. The items below are in various cosmetic conditions and priced accordingly. See this statement for descriptions of cosmetic condition. I have some UNUSED Apple parts, check my unused parts list for specific items.

    The "short" keyboard was shipped with the Plus but will work with the 128K or 512K. The "long" keyboard was shipped with the Plus but will work with the 128K or 512K. The short keyboard weighs two pounds and is 14 X 7 X 3 inches approximately. The long keyboard is about three pounds and 16 X 7 X 3 accordingly. Packing weight and size will be larger. Follow the Web links for images of these various items.

    [long kbd] Mac Plus long keyboard (has numeric keys on right) for 128K/512K/Plus as follows:
    Mac Plus tan or platinum (grey) keyboard well faded, yellowed, cosmetic color patches, but tested and working, with cable, $49

    Mouse with DB-9 model M0100 SQUARE-cornered connector housing as in photo of mouse on RIGHT, original for 128K, early 512K. Functionally the same as the "round cornered connector" mouse. Very limited supply. We don't offer these in any condition less than "very good" as they are often in fair or poor cosmetic condition. Prices if available will be HIGHER than prices for very good "round-cornered connector" Mac Plus mice as descrobe above. If asked, I'll see what I have and price them accordingly.

    Trackballs, joysticks, other pointing devices

    Trackballs, joysticks for Mac Plus/128K/512K; or for later Macs which use the "ADB" keyboard and mouse. As of Dec 2009, here's what we have. There are two Mac Plus/128K/512K Kensington trackballs on the right of the photo. On the left are some ADB compatible trackballs and joysticks. Also a Mouse Systems 3-button optical, 403243-001, good condition. $39 each plus shipping and packing. At that price we will test and verify and describe brand and model in more detail. I don't see many of these anymore.

    Early Mac systems

    about selling Mac 128K, 512K and later systems

    Bottom line as of mid-2008: I often don't offer 128K's or 512K's to sell because of "market prices". I can sell their PARTS for more than I can get for a complete system, or use them for repair parts, with less fuss. I sell good PARTS, tested and working and repaired, at a fair price. It is easier to sell the parts, it takes less time to describe them, I don't need photographs to show condition, I don't have to count scratches, etc. Customers with 128K systems who need GOOD WORKING PARTS will pay good prices for parts.

    Meanwhile, many people offer at Web auctions their "128K Macs", with no effort to test or repair, in varying conditions, at lower prices than my parts. The fact that they may not work 100% or not be complete 128K systems may not be known by the seller, or their buyer; they are sold AS IS. Much the same applies to 512k, Plus and other "compact" Mac systems. I cannot compete by PRICE, under those circumstances.

    PRICES: A simple answer to "how much WOULD a 128K or 512K system cost?" is this: I could not possibly offer a "complete" 128K or 512K system for less than $150 plus shipping, due to parts value - it would likely be MORE, especially for any 128K. A Mac Plus would likely be less. An SE or SE/30, likely AS MUCH OR MORE due to the hard drive value. This is NOT a guaranteed price, only a guideline - period. Look on this "collectable" Web page or my Compact Mac Web page for specifics and discussion - then contact me.

    128K Mac systems

    [Mac 128K] Here is a typical Mac 128K, with numeric keypad option, in very good to excellent cosmetic condition. Any unit I sell will be clean and working and in "good" cosmetic condition or better. See these descriptions for cosmetic conditions. The 400K drives are relubricated, tested and fully checked out by me. No CRT screen burn, good power supply, includes mouse and short keyboard.

    Be aware that the earliest 128K Mac was labled on the back upper left corner as "Macintosh"; the later model was labled "Macinstosh 128K" - this matters to some people, but they otherwise operate identical. Details of cosmetic condition would be described for each unit. Shipping weight 25 lbs for system unit, keyboard, and mouse; more for any additional items. (Shipping weight and distance determine shipping costs.)

    See my notes above about my offering 128K systems.

    512K Mac systems

    [Mac 128K] Mac 512K's are also available from time to time, either in collectable condition (described as above), or with some cosmetic damage - typically some uneven fading, some pale patches where lables were removed. See my notes above about offering these 512K systems. Shipping weight 25 lbs for system unit, keyboard, and mouse.

    Some 512K Macs came with 800K floppy drives and are known as "512KE"; older 512K Macs may not support 800k drives. The 512K cases have the lable "Macintosh 512K" on the back in the upper left corner: the lable in the lower right may have one of the following model numbers: "M0001", "M0001E", "M0001W". However some of these may have been upgraded, so you cannot rely on the case to tell you the contents! Please tell me which model you have or want, when ordering parts or asking about systems. We don't guarantee all this model info is correct or complete, we'd appreciate corrections. Check the Web for more info.

    Mac Plus, SE, SE/30 systems

    We offer complete Mac Plus systems, in "good" cosmetic condition, or in better cosmetic condition when available. These use 800K floppy drive and have a SCSI external connector. They are not uncommon, and they are useful or at least fun and interesting to own. The same applies to the SE, SE "superdrive" or SE FDHD, and the SE/30. Contact us to see what is available in these systems. For more information, check our "compact" Mac Web page for more about the Plus, SE, SE/30 and other "compact" Macs. But systems in very good cosmetic conditon may be on this Web page as "collectable".

    Available Classic Mac system

    Mac Classic system in Apple box. We have a Mac Classic system in a box with matching serial numbers. The box is in good but dusty condition with some markings on it, and some "freckles". Here is an image of the box. Here is the Classic inside the box. In addition, here is an image of the Classic system.. The Classic case is lightly faded, some parts slightly more faded, but has no dings or scratches. The CRT is lightly screen-burned. Tested OCt 2011, the system runs with 4MB RAM, 40MB hard drive (noisy but working). Note: this system as discussed here includes only the Classic, the box and its two styrofoam inserts. I may have a replacement CRT, and I have items like keyboards and mice. Final price depends on any work to be done to improve or upgrade, to add keyboard or mouse, etc. We will test and discuss price accordingly. Extra fees for double boxing. It's simply RARE to find a Mac of this type with its original box, whatever conditions there are for box and system.

    Mac accessories, upgrades, add-ons

    We have a few Apple system packing boxes, some with most of the original disks and papers included with an SE shipped by Apple. We have boxes for the Plus, SE and others, but no 128K or 512K boxes as of April 2006. The example box below is an SE box, we don't have the matching SE with the same serial number. The box has upper and lower styrofoam inserts, intact. The books and papers, in the original styrofoam box, include the SE manual, superfinder manual, registration papers, Apple decals, and other documents. There are also four System 6 disks in the box, and a "SE tour" disk; a mouse and A/C cable. Also in the packing box is a keyboard box with a keyboard and both styrofoam inserts; and papers associated with the keyboard. Extra shipping fees for double boxing.

    Here are images of the SE box and its contents:

    AppleTalk PC card box, M2050. one corner broken open but otherwise in good condition; has "10.00" in marker written on it. This bx would contain an Apple ISA card 630-0113 for Intel/Windows systems to run Appletalk networks. Box contains the following: Two disks in holder, PC LaserWriter Program Disk Application, Disk Startup (5.25" disks, for PC); 680-5008, 680-5018. Limited Warrenty card. Packing List. THERE IS NO MANUAL, the packing list says it would be "AppleTalk PC Card" 030-1256. The card in the box is NOT APPLE as per packing list; it is "Centram Systems West Inc. P/N 10322 Rev D". If you have the manual and/or card consider these items.

    MacSnap Plus 2 by Dove Systems in box. Doubles Plus memory by adapters which allow SIMMS to be stacked up in sockets. Contains four special 1MB SIMMS (Dove Computer 630-1257) which also have a SIMM *socket*. Box includes diskette, lable, copywrite/warrenty card (top half only); original reciept ($249.00!) from 1988; RAMSNAP User Manual; MacSnap Plus 2 Manual Supplement (2 duplicate manuals); MacSnap instruction manual (for original MacSnap processor upgrade product). Quite a collection of MacSnap information and history!

    [ImageWriter I] Imagewriter I, in original MAC shipping box (the one pictured is in an Apple II type box), including manual and AC cord. Box and printer in excellent condition, no damage. Shipping weight about 30 lbs, will ship with box placed inside shipping box.

    Apple Personal Modem 300/1200, in the box. 914-0337-A. Box is in fair to good condition and intact with styrofoam. Contains manual, warrenty and packing list, other papers (may not have all papers). MOdem is cosmetically clean and white as is AC plug adapter. This modem hangs from the AC outlet. Serial number of modem matches label on box. Also miniDIN-8 to DB-9 cable. Modem is not tested. Shipping weight under four pounds packed. I may also have this modem by itself, but very yellowed, again untested.

    [carrying bag]Carrying bag:

    These Macintosh carrying bags typically hold a compact Mac (128K, Plus, SE/30, Classic, etc.) and its keyboard, mouse. Some can carry diskettes, external drives, and so on. They often have handles and shoulder straps, and come in various colors. They vary in size, some hold the keyboard inside the bag, some hold them in a pouch outside the bag. Apple produced a "tan" bag for their earliest compact Macs. Shipping costs depend on weight AND size. These non-Apple brand bags are $29 each plus shipping. Shipping weight typically 5 lbs but shipping dimensions (18X15X11) may increase shipping costs.

    Currently (2013) among non-Apple-brand bags, I have two violet/red bags, two dark blue bags, two off-grey bags. Here are three examples of non-Apple-brand bags I have as of 2013. This is one view of a few of them; and This is another view of them. One bag in particular in grey looks like this next to a SE. and here's another view. Another grey bag looks like this.The largest bag is 18 X 18 X 11 inches. Bags vary in condition, some may have writing, some may be slightly soiled, etc. Ask what I have by preferred color, sizes are about all the same.

    [tan bag] Tan bags, Apple original? I may have one, ask me. They would likely be similar to the tan bag shown here; they will cost more than the non-Apple bags above. Price depends on condition and associated items like the "tag".

    When ordering, please follow this link for ordering information, terms and conditions, and info about orders outside the USA.

    Apple HD20, HD20 SC, CD SC

    Apple HD20

    [HD 20 floppy version] Apple Hard Disk 20 (HD20), 20 meg HD in tan cabinets.
    Connects to Mac floppy port (not SCSI) with attached cable. First external Apple / Mac hard drive. THIS IS NOT A SCSI HARD DRIVE, THERE IS NOT A SCSI HARD DRIVE INSIDE, the hard drive is unique, we cannot replace it with a SCSI drive. It works with the 512KE and later Macs with external floppy connector. These are all "tan" colored like the 128K and 512K. It will also work with a 512K or 128K Mac with a proper operating system which includes the "HD20" file. Check our Mac software section for specifics on that software. Check our HD20 and HD20 SC technical Web page for a review of the HD20 and its use on 128K's and 512K's.

    As of 2009, we have a few HD20 drives (not SCSI) in fair or poor cosmetic condition: some are working. Due to their rarity and their age, we price these based on customer's requests, and test them at the time of request. Drives with cases in better condition, and working, and if available will cost more.

    Apple HD20 SC

    [HD20 hard drive] The HD20 SC hard drive is the first Apple external SCSI drive. It must have an external SCSI terminator device unless the internal drive is "terminated". Early models were "tan", later models were platinum/grey. M2603 is a model number. Later models of higher capacity (HD40, HD160, etc.) are the same case with a different lable but with a different capacity of SCSI drive inside. Since we get these units used, the previous owner may have replaced the drive. For more technical discussion, our HD20 and HD20 SC technical Web page

    Because of the age of these cases, they are fragile and difficult to open to replace the SCSI drive inside. Here's a note and photos of how to open these HD20 SC cases.

    Here's how I describe the cosmetics of these cases. "Excellent" would be with minimal fading (light grey or tan), no physical damage. "Good" is slightly yellowed (grey and tan will be darker) but uniformly faded, maybe some scuffs. "Fair" is with more yellowing (tan and grey/platinum cases will look the same) and there may be scratches or dings or nicks. "Poor" is fair with additional issues. Digital photos always highlight any small contrast.

    For reference, here's some photos of a grey/platinum HD20 SC case in "excellent" condition. here's the top and front, and here's the bottom and back. THIS IS NOT LIKELY AVAILABLE CURRENTLY, it's an example. Bits of masking tape are to protect the snaps from closing, as I've kept the cover loose to avoid opening and closing the case again. And here's two photos of a tan case in "good to excellent" condition (we worked carefully to show the tan color, most cameras turn "tan" to "grey").here is the top and here is the bottom.

    HD 20SC SCSI external drive, tan or platinum, as available, "excellent" or "very good" condition, drive unwarrented. price depends on condition.
    HD 20SC SCSI external drive, tan or platinum, as available, "good" condition, drive unwarrented. $69 plus shipping.
    HD 20SC SCSI external drive, tan or platinum, as available, "fair" or "poor" condition, drive unwarrented. $49 plus shipping.

    Shipping extra on all drives, shipping wt. 15. lbs. on one case, plus drive at a few pounds.
    You will need a SCSI-1 cable and a SCSI-1 terminator for the SCSI drives, those cables and terminators are available on this page.

    As of March 2010, here's what we have. Reference numbers based on serial number. The drives in these are NOT warrented and will likely NOT work. They are too old. But we test the cases for good DC power and running fans, and we test to see that the drives power up. Consequently, we are selling these as cases. You can buy them to put your own drive in, or pay us to put a drive in.

    As of Sept 2012, I have three "HD 20SC" drive cabinets, faded yellowed. I'd say these are "fair" but not lightly faded enough to be "good". I can probably offer one or two which have good fans and power supplies. No hard drives, and you may need additional hardware (screws) to hold a hard drive. I won't offer these for less than $49.

    Apple CD SC

    The AppleCD SC model M2850 is an early Apple external CD-ROM drive. The drive inside is a Sony brand CDU-8001. It uses a caddy, not a tray: we will include a caddy with the drive. The case is about the size of an HD20 SCSI drive, about 10 inches square. As of 2012, I have two or three of these, in fair to good cosmetic condition (slight fading, no physical damage), power is OK, but the drives are not working. $49 each plus shipping.

    I also have a Apple CD SC Plus, which uses a CDU-541 Sony drive. Cosmetic condition is "good". I'll need to test, ask if available.

    When ordering, please follow this link for my email address, ordering information, terms and conditions, and info about orders outside the USA. If you live outside the United States, consider the costs of shipping; and the costs of providing payment.


    early Apple Macintosh software

    Apple brand Macintosh software

    We offer some older system software on our Mac software page. There is also a great deal of original software disks and CD's available on that page, from Apple and other Mac software producers, at very modest prices. The software on this page is old and rare. If no price is listed, MAKE ME AN OFFER. But look at the other prices here first to get a clue as to what would be an acceptable offer. We will determine packing and shipping costs seperately from your offer.

    A customer who wanted HD20 and early system software referred me to this site: Apple Macintosh before System 7 by Eric Rasmussen. It's a chronology of early Macs and OS's in the 128K 512K Plus era. Has a link to Apple docs on the subject but offers corrections supposedly based on original disks. If you want more links to Apple's site, and to other Mac Web sites, check my links page.

    Lightspeed Pascal books and disks: A book "Think's Lightspeed Pascal, User's Manual" by Symantec. Book's cover says "For Macintosh Plus, SE and II computers". The book suggests it supports version 2.0, and lists two disks and one book as what was provided. There's two original diskettes, with the same title and logo as this book, numbered 1 and 2. They are 800K diskettes, read and verfied in Sept 2011 by me. Book and disks dated 1988. A second book is "Think's Lightspeed Pascal for the Macintosh" by Think Technologies Inc. Version 1, first edition, dated 1986. There are no disks included with this book (it notes three), we simply include it with the other items. The total weight of two books and diskettes is under 5 pounds. We'll sell both books and both disks for $35 plus shipping, Media Mail in the USA would be several dollars.

    T.S. bought a 512K Mac without the motherboard and power supply. He says: "I got the package about a week ago but only now finally got around to testing. I've got my flashing questionmark icon, so thanks for getting me on my way! Now to get that system disk[ette].."

    S. L. of SC bought an SE system and said: "Thanks again for your help. I got the SE today. Unpacked it, booted it up, nice system! Now all I need to do is find where I can find 800K floppies and a scsi/ethernet adaptor. I really appreciate your help and service, and am very happy with the SE."

    C. A. of AZ ordered a SE FDHD in good condition. He wrote: "Herb, the SE arrived yesterday having survived the trip in good form. Looks great and started up just fine. Fun to see that screen after so many years. Thanks for your work. Pleasure doing business with you Herb."

    E. W. of CANADA said: "Just a quick note to let you know I picked up your shipment today. Everything seems to be working fine: 400K external drive, 128K Mac numeric keypad and cable, [other items]. I'll likely be sending in another order for more stuff in the new year. Thanx.."

    R.S. of AL said: "The used Apple Imagewiter I printer that I ordered from you came today. It works fine and I just wanted to let you know I am a happy customer."

    L. M. of OK said: I got the Mac [128K you repaired for me] yesterday afternoon, the 12th. I hooked it up this morning and it all works just fine. I guess the only mistake I made in the whole process was paying some local yokel $80 to tell me it couldn't be fixed. But as the old Pennsylvania Dutch saying states, " We gedt too soon oldt und too late schmardt." Any way, thanks for a good job."
