Does anyone have a source for new disc inlays?

Recommended Posts

Trying to attach again. * okay that worked. I'll take more pics later of how it came out.

I'm not sure how you are attaching the discs but I have had great success attaching things like this with rubber cement. I'm not sure how the cement would react with the materials being used.

 

I've found that the best method for using rubber cement is to apply a thin layer on the facing parts of both things to be attached and let the cement dry. Once the cement is dry on both parts, carefully align and place the items together. Excess cement can be rubbed away with a clean cloth after the items are attached and completely dry.

 

I use this method a lot to make my own labels for things by printing on glossy paper and using rubber cement to attach the labels. To keep the labels nice and clean while attaching, Once I get the label initially in place, I lay a clean piece of paper over the top to protect it while I then rub my hand or a cloth over the label (with the paper over it to protect it) to press it down. Things attached like this can be removed later.

 

Sorry about the long post. For some reason I love this crafty stuff. :)

I successfully restored a peeling disc controller by removing the old clear plastic layer and the adhesive with a bit of WD40 and some isopropyl alcohol, and applying new clear book cover plastic. Not perfect, but a lot better than it was.

I used plastic epoxy which bonds plastics or metals and plastics.

Was thinking brass because you can wire wheel it to get that look. I don't know if it will work with coated aluminium

I could see putting a couple of these on my Intellivision Flashback. They made the controllers 99% accurate to the real deal - but then they put on those bland, flat gold decals.

Also, this is the effect that can be done on it to finish it off. It's called engine-turning. Just need a bit, or a mild abrasive stone bit on a drill to do it.

Wow. I'd love to have at least two or maybe three sets of controller discs finished like the ones in the picture you attached. That would be SWEET!!!!

You can actually buy stickers and just cut them out if you wanted to have the engine turn pattern or any pattern for that matter.

Did anyone every come across with these? I could use some if they did.

+1 Any sources available? My Intellivision restore is done except for this. The previous owner used paper-backed silver stickers which are (of course) peeling off and look odd due to the color.

I bet I can get these made, let me work on it. I already was working on the Coloecovision ones as well.

You are my hero, they should make an Intellivision home brew about you and your adventure on getting them made.

I appreciate the enthusiasm. Should be fairly easy compared to the Atari Jaguar Pro controller project I recently completed. I actually am working on the Intellivision plastic cartridge trays as well and should have them made pretty soon as well. The plastic trays that go inside the cardboard boxes.
