Thanks for responding (but between a helpful post on classiccmp from
Mark Roberts and cracking mine open to meg it out myself, I'm up and
running ;-).

I put a 12V switcher I got at Dayton for about $5 in an ancient and
long empty external 400K Mac drive case (belonged to my mother when
the drive inside died over 12 years ago) and wired it up to a C-64
drive cable half I got from the thrift store (someone spliced their
own extension cable in the middle by twisting the wires and encasing
it all in PVC tape :-P ) Worked the first time.

So now I'll have an flat-screen terminal powered by a PSU in a Mac
drive case, talking to a portable PDP-8 in an Amiga drive case. Guess
I should post some pictures of that. :-)
