About the Project

About a decade ago I got a Xerox Star 8010 (Dandelion) from a friend of a friend. It had been stored in a garage and was all rusty, and had previously had mice living inside it who used the insulation from various wiring harnesses to make a nest. I’d been storing it with the eventual plan to restore it to working condition, but didn’t have the space or tools to do it at home.

HackLab.TO moved into a new larger space in late 2014, meaning I finally had a place to keep the machine while working on it, as well as a space full of all the tools I’d need to restore it. The machine is now living at the HackLab, and I’ve started working on restoring it to working condition.
