Amigamaniac has them:


Not sure if he will allow a bulk-buy discount?

Unfortunately for "speed", he is in the land of Oz...

I'd certainly be interested in getting one of these leads when made up.

Also, a quick google:




These do offer a 15% discount for 10+, so perhaps a bulk/group purchase would be a good idea?

Again though, these people are overseas, in Canada this time.

thanks mate

i have just emailed these to see how much and if they have any stock

I've just emailed bitsbox.co.uk (http://www.bitsbox.co.uk) to see if they can get them. I need to order a few bits from them anyway.

Unfortunately, bitsbox drew a blank on this one :(

None of their suppliers stock these.

Sorry had a look and only got male ones :(

I do have housings though so let me know if you need any of them and I'll chuck them in the post.

thanks mate i will have a few housings,pm sent

Don't give up so easily. Get a 25 way one if you can. Hacksaw off 24/25 keeping the same angle & you get an instant 23 way. A small file, or even a nail file will remove any sharp edges left. :thumbsup:

I need one of these too ,i got mine from a disk drive external and I have to stick the wires in it at the moment and when I bang the Amiga the pic goes funny..??

8th July 2012, 16:01
I had a idea..you could use a amiga 520 modulator,what you do is cut from the board so you still have the pins on the board so you can solder the wires too..;)

or use a old disk drive it has the feman port on the back of it do the same cut it out of the board so you have a place to solder the wires too

Im going to take mine from the A500 board,the disk drive port is the same so you can use but cut around it leaving abit of the board so you can solder the wires to it,if you don't you will have problems like i did the first time i did it,I didn't leave a bit of the board and the wires keep coming off.

Johnim: Are you still able to make cables for the GBS 8220 to connect to the Amiga ? Sent you a PM, thanks !
