Re: 3D printed ZX80-style casing for the ZXMore?

Haven't gotten that far yet, but sure the entire case will be well under $100 (US). Would like to hit between $50-$75. Half of what Shapeways charges for their 3D printed version, but mine will be (hopefully) identical to the original including the stickers.

Re: 3D printed ZX80-style casing for the ZXMore?

I am in the process as we speak of making vacuum-formed replacement cases for the ZX80. As soon as that is completed I will get with Karl (PokeMon) and see what modifications need to be made to adapt it to the ZXMore. Stay tuned to this channel .

Re: ZXpand enclosures available

Hey BarryN, I am afraid that would not be in my best interest to do so. Many, many hours of design work and prototyping went into creating the enclosures for Charlie's (sirmorris) boards. You will find them available at a very reasonable price on the SellMyRetro web site. I do appreciate where you a...

Re: ZX80 rivets and Ram Pack progress

Hey dessony, I surely can. I only kept 100, so quantities will be somewhat limited, of course. Sorry I am only now seeing your post. :oops:

Re: ZX80 rivets and Ram Pack progress

I bought 500 of them (even though I don't need nearly that many) with the idea of sending most of them to Rich so he can supply folks across the pond much more cheaply than I can with US shipping costs. He and I have just begun a discussion, so stay tuned.

ZX80 rivets and Ram Pack progress

At long last I have made some progress on finding acceptable replacement rivets for the ZX80 Case and the 3K memory pack. The rivets are for practical purposes dimensionally indistinguishable from the originals. The 2d CAD drawing shows the difference between them and the original. Original is on th...

Re: ZX80 Case Rivets

I have finally found a supplier for the rivets in the correct natural color. According to the spec sheet they should be dimensionally indistinguishable from the original ZX80 case rivets. Since they are on the other side of the planet it may be a couple of weeks before they arrive. I thought 500 wou...
