"Once you've got things finished with the PiXL, can you make up a small classic Mac case also for use with the Pi and Mini vMac?  Perhaps you can even team up with John and help him get his own "Mini Mac" project shipping in…"

The Vintage Mac Museum Blog

The Vintage Mac Museum is a working collection of 68k and PowerPC Macs from the pre-Intel era. I just started a blog that describes working with vintage Macs, maintaining the collection, and tales of performing old Mac file transfers and conversions, which can be found at http://vintagemacmuseum.blogspot.com/.

I subscribe hardly anywhere. But this sounds familiar to me. Throughout the nineties I had to handle PC-Word-files again and again. Some of them were readable on the LC (7.1).
A change of the floppy drive and PC Exchange (really, PC Ex made reading PC disks possible, but only in combination with a new drive) gave my setup a slight 'compatiblity',
But in a way it felt good not to be another grey in the crowd...

Well, I read it (by using the link), and wanted to comment there,
but I was forced to do it this way then.
There's always more than one possible solution.
Can it be the earliest LC's had drives not capable of PC disks ?

All LCs came with 1.44MB SuperDrives, which could read/write DOS disks. The PC Exchange program was the opener utility Apple supplied, not the full translator like MacLinkPlus. Feel free to email me directly if you wish to continue: adam AT oakbog.com
