I received this cartridge holder for the Atari Jaguar yesterday. I have to say I have mixed feelings about it....

 

It does look pretty good and I like the design. However, I think it is just a smidge too small. To insert carts is difficult: I find that the slots are very, very snug. If I push a cart all the way into a slot, it takes a tremendous amount of force to pry the cart back out. The slots should really be at least a couple more millimeters wider and longer.  Pretty disappointing.

 

I wrote to the etsy vendor, and all he wrote back was essentially, "Gosh that's too bad - for future orders we'll try printing at 101% or 102% so the carts fit better."

 

So, yeah, I can't recommend the vendor.  If you print your own from the files on thingiverse, you might well have a better experience.

 

Why not just ask him to replace it with one that is better?

I think I will, but from the tone and wording of the message I received, it's clear my request will be unsuccessful.

Hmmm... just had the idea for 3D printed labels from all this:  A name of the cartridge printed in a half-cylinder to snap on over your cartridge handle.

 

Wouldn't mind a raised tactile text of Joust.. maybe Doom... definitely Bubsy..   Would work best with the shorter names.   Great for finding a cartridge in the dark.
