I could.

What I have that's known-good is a Quadra 605 with a IIe card and two
Unidisk 5.25" disks.  In addition to that, I have a small pile of other
Apple II stuff that is not known-good.  I'm trying to verify the piles of
hardware, image the software disks I received with that stuff, and make
system disks for the actual hardware so that it might be usable to others.

ADT between the Quadra and a more modern machine might be the best course
of action, though.  It'd just be nice to have everything contained in one
machine, since this Apple project is on a workbench all by itself.
