SCSI to Ethernet adapter needed

If anyone could sell me one, I would really appreciate it. I need to transfer files between my iMac G3 and Mac SE. I heard this is the easiest way. I recently got into mac collecting. Please help!

You would be better off getting a serial cable (and/or phonenet) and setting up a localtalk network. It will be quicker to find, cheaper to buy, and probably more reliable.

Or (similar) one of those Ethernet to LocalTalk adapters. Comes up in discussions here and in Apple Communities regularly. I have one of the old Farallon iPrint Adapters, but there were a number of similars at the time - from when Mac users bought the new iMac G3's and needed to connect to their old Macs and their old StyleWriter and LaserWriter printers - from an age where printers were expensive and heavy.
It was a lot of money at the time - in the UK - maybe £120 - but it worked perfectly. I'm sure others here had alternative brands. If you're in the US, you're laughing, one will turn up on eBay in a week or so, but it would be good here for the others to list their models to help your search. I still need mine, I still have an SE FD/HD and a Colour Classic and a few others.

Zip may be an option, it'll be cheap enough.
