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...

Re: Issue 1 vs Issue 2 ZX80 case

He has responded to my message, so maybe if his associate is using files that are "cleaner" than the Marcus files and is willing to share them, I'll be a little further along the road. If not, I'll proceed with the Marcus files.

Re: Issue 1 vs Issue 2 ZX80 case

Hey MaFli, I downloaded ZX80 the files off the German forum site, and have found that every CAD program I can find is saying there are issues with the drawing for the bottom shell. No matter what repair program I run it through, none of them are able to truly repair the drawing. Do you know of anywh...
