@exxos - send over the stl the Giant Panda is ready to go. The upgrades last weekend were good, runs quieter and seems to have more precision :)

How about making it out of acrylic sheet? Looks easy enough from that angle.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Yeah, but..

1) no time to look for sheets
2) would have to get it cut to size as I dont have time to do it
3) Theres no way I would be able to drill all the holes accurately enough
4) did I mention I don't have time ? :lol:

Sometime later :dizzy:

I'm offloading some stuff up into the loft, but way to hot to go up there currently.

I've got around 30 boards im going to rip a few bits n bobs off then chuck them as I just don't have room for all these boards :(

Is it worth asking if anybody wants any of those boards before you dump them?

Obviously they will need to cover p&p etc. but some forum members (like me) may have a few poorly STs to try & resurrect & this may be an opportunity to get at least some of the bits without having to be heavily gouged on the bay of fleas...

Fully appreciate that you're taking most of the more expensive items for you store... ;)

I think I have asked before on here if anyone wants whats left of these boards, but no takers. Mostly the main chips and sockets will be gone.. Mostly DMA,SHIFTER, MMU,GLUE, DB19, CARTRIDGE CONNECTOR, PLCC68 sockets, 1772 etc . If someone wants to take the lot after the culling then saves me a trip to the tip ;)
