  1. Here are more pictures. I had to drill two holes in the PCB to make it fit and be secure.
  2. I will attempt to attach some pictures of my first successful attempt. I had do some modifications to the case and I also used some wood strips as spacers. I used the wood because I needed to elevate the drive by 1/4 of an inch and I have the carpentry tools to get spacing pretty exact. I will use a file to smooth out the opening for the drive selector. I wish I hadn't used a case that was chipped. I did it because I didn't know if I would be able to make everything work and I didn't want to ruin a good case.
  3. Thanks for the information, I will try to get that done in the next week or two.
  4. I don't have anything yet and I definitely don't have any files. I could probably come up with a mock up in a couple of weeks. If I actually knew anything about 3D printing I could probably get the job done locally.
  5. Does anyone know where I or anyone else could get something 3D printed from a prototype or a sketch. I don't have the knowledge to make a print file but I could make a prototype out of cardboard or wood and I could also make a detailed sketch. What I am interested in making is a set of panels to glue to the front and back of a SF315/354 case so I could install a standard 3.5 floppy in those cases and have them look like they belong in the case.
  6. Check out this thread. IDEA:External Atari ST drive transformed to 8-bit (XF551 internals).
  7. An Atari SF354 disk drive, I believe I can convert this one to an 8-bit drive.
  8. I just realized that I have been using .1uf 50V multi layer capacitors where I should have been using .1uf 100V multi layer capacitors. I have done this on three boards and they are performing well. Does anyone know what effect will this have on the long term life of the board and should I replace them all?
  9. I did not try it on any equipment. I always check power supplies with a multimeter before I use them.
  10. The transformer is sold by Tpower. You can find the on eBay, Amazon and numerous other places.
  11. I meant to say that the transformer that I bought does not have an output amperage nor a VA listed. The only thing that it gives is the output voltage of 9-12 volts. It is advertised as being a replacement for the C017945.
  12. I can't find where the list an output amp, guess I'll have to hook it up and test it.
  13. I recently bought a power supply that was advertised as a replacement for the 9VAC Atari power supply. I tested it and my two multimeters show 11.3 and 11.4 VAC. Is that acceptable or am I going to fry my computer/disk drive if I use it?
