Sorry for your struggles.  However, you can get SCSI cards for your Mac
for much less that $300.  

Check out: 
http://eshop.macsales.com/Catalog_Page.cfm?Parent=96&Title=SCSI%20%26%20IDE%20Controllers&Template=

for several options under $100, as low as $50.  I personally use the
Initio BlueNote PCI ($80 on this site) on my PowerMac G4 450DP (originally
on my G3/300) and it works fine with my Canon FS2710 film scanner, UMAX
1200S flatbed, and an old SCSI CD-R drive.  No drivers or extensions
needed.  It also worked with the Acer ScanWit 2720 and VueScan back on the
G3, though I have not tried that combo on my G4 (I borrowed the ScanWit).
