I had an Idea a while back about 3D printing a chassis modification, it would go in between the top and bottom of the chassis and allow for more components to be contained within. It would only increase thickness by 1.5". your idea has revived my creativity on this. 

 

Nice idea!  Of course you'll also have to make a modification/replacement for the slide switch too.

Yes, I thought it might help those who are going to be using the Speech Synth TIPI/32k. Can move the speech synth board to the interior. Room for growth. and more work needed. Well, Wife and I have agreed we are going to get a 3D printer here soon. this may be on hold until then.

No surprise that it's gone already

 

I just bought one, looks as nice, for $5 more. the price on those are finally coming down to more reasonable prices (one guy wanted a ridiculous  $70 for one).

There's a set of original, unbuilt Powertran Cortex circuit boards on eBay, with a set of keyboard switches as a separate auction. If you fancy building some original hardware ...

Just use ordinary IDC header strip, 90 degree. Clip at 44 pins.

 

For instance, this assortment is inexpensive, and contains suitable angled header.

 

https://www.amazon.com/Glarks-Connector-Assortment-Stackable-Breakaway/dp/B07CWSXY7P/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=2.54mm+header+strip+angled&qid=1594004590&sr=8-13

 

Also has various other useful headers.

 

Or, straight up angled header. 80pin break away 2 row.

More nanoPEB v1 (9902 UART) up.

 

Anyone have a direct line to schmutzig?  I emailed him a few months ago about a replacement IDE angle connector and never heard from him.  Alternatively, does anyone have any such things or know a good source?

 

Also, this guy has a bunch of white label Scott Foresman carts.

Like Weird_w  says, it really is just the generic snap apart pin row.

 

I'm getting a lot of my connector thingys from Phoenix Enterprises. Here is there R/A page:

 

https://www.peconnectors.com/headers-breakaway-r/a-.100/

 

It's where I found the Dual 30-pin SIMM Angle socket... and I've been finding  plenty of other ways to give them my business.

 

If you want the IDE shrouded part you may have imagined, look here:

https://www.peconnectors.com/box-headers-pcb-.100-r/a/

 

The part that I can't find reasonably, is the R/A female header 2x6 (rare) or just 2x8 (pricey here)

https://www.peconnectors.com/female-headers-pcb-2x-row-.100/hws11162/

I've even looked in China. Despite the 2x6 appearing in large quantity on everything I've got... I cannot find a source that has 2x6.

https://www.pololu.com/ hasn't got any either.   I got a lot of Samtec 2x15 on clearance, and I'm sawing those into 2x6 hunks.

Here you go, not too pricey either. I think I may even have bought from this seller once or twice. . .

Thank you, that is the real deal! I can do 18 cents. (Sullins direct wants 50 cents, SamTec wants 66 cents for surface mount, somebody else at 1.24)

 

 

Can I just toss my shopping list at you?

 

I have all the shrouded headers I could want, but now I need short IDC ribbon cables. DirtyCables prices a 10cm IDC cable at around $2.25 in qty 100 (the # of pins doesn't change it much.)

 

The Dupont kind I am also looking for.. here's one for $2 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Single-Double-Row-DuPont-2-54mm-Rainbow-Cable-Ribbon-Jumper-Wire-Female-Female/264011141771?var=563541948281 The 2x4 could be called "HexBus" replacements.

Yeah, I mentioned that.  Most of us here know you, and how you've supported the community over the years, so to me it's a no-brainer.  If I was in the market for one, I'd buy from you.

Oh really?  I thought yours were green with slightly different header pins.  Well still, if it's the same exact card, of course people should buy from you if it's cheaper!

Yes, been here a bit.  Not as vocal as I could be, I suppose.

Indeed, I am producing the ones Arcadeshopper is selling and they are the same blue ones as pictured on eBay.  However, since eBay charges 10% for their services, the price goes up.

I have the exact ones for the same price here: https://thebrewingacademy.com/collections/ti-99-4a/products/tipipeb-ti-raspberry-pi-interface-for-the-ti-peripheral-expansion-box

 

However, you should buy from whomever you feel comfortable with.  As a collarlary to that: if you buy from Arcadeshopper and love it:  it is all his doing!  If you buy it from him and hate it, then all the blame is mine! ;-)
