Wanted: Control Panel for the Orchid Technology MacSprint II cache card

Hi, I am new to the forums. I've been a long time lurker but posted some additions to the database not too long ago from my personal archive =)

Recently I picked up a Macintosh II with a MacSprint II cache card from Orchid Technology. Unfortunately, it needs a control panel to fully function (turn off/on the cache). I would be very interested if somebody is able to dig up the panel, and I've looked at all of the current abandonware archives with no luck. I would likely be willing to offer some type of $ bounty for someone that can find it.

It certainly seems to be a rather rare item, I'll add it to my lists and see if anything turns up.

Uploaded! No bounty needed; it turned up immediately on a shareware CD. Smile

And thanks for your recent contributions!

Woo, thank you so much Daxeria!! I can't wait to get this II going =)

Out of curiosity which shareware CD did it end up being on?

It was on BBS in a Box IV through VII (and probably the earlier volumes too, but those have yet to surface online).
