Are there any new cartridge shells being made for the Atari 800 these days or in the near future? I am not talking about 3D printed ones...

some of the long time Atari supporting sites have had runs of new shells but they use them on their own products....

Large® production runs using 3D-printing?
I know Steven Tucker is selling new cartridge cases, but those are injection molded.

The post is about NON printed shells... so he is looking for injection, blown and other molded types...

Damn. I did it again. Stress at work is really getting to me. And somehow auto-correction too, I see.

Steve Tucker's shells are very good. They are the same as the orange O.S.S. carts.
Edit: Minus the O.S.S. logo, of course.
A link to see those Steve Tucker shells?

Probably something like this? (hotlinked from atarimax.com)

But are he selling these? I guess I should just mail him and find out...

The atarimax cases do not fit a regular atari pcb, but I do know that at least two parties outside of Atarimax have used his cases for fairly large runs. There was a question made by Mathy in another thread regarding buying these cases in bulk, the response was...
I received a message from Steven Tucker today. 100 cases would cost $ 4.40 each. Plus shipping.
Colors available: red, light clear blue and neon clear green. "They do not fit the same style pcb used in the brown Atari made casings"

Thank you for the info!

In this picture (not mine!) you can get an impression of what the cases by Steven Tucker look like. They are used for all kinds of stuff, so don't mind the sticker:
As I said, they are used for all kinds of stuff, so just ignore the stickers and the extra holes some cartridges in the pictures have. I'm putting these pictures up here so you can get an impression of the colo(u)r and shape of the cases.
